If it's a fashionable way to spend, and happening in the Bay Area, we're talking about it on Shop Talk.
Last Saturday, I caught up with local artist, Charmaine Olivia, at the opening of her first SF solo show, Ritual, (on display through February 4) at The Shooting Gallery. The artist donned a gorgeous, black, floor-length dress with cut-out details, Jeffrey Campbell pumps and her signature mix of eclectic jewelry (some of which is currently on display as part of her show).
Ever wonder what's inside that ernestly scribbled upon notebook of your local coffee shop's resident artist? No doubt he's tried to show you numerous times, and it probably didn't quite live up to all those hours of work (and angst) that you've seen him put in. Instead, cruise over to Moleskine to check out the winners of their recent MyDetour contest.
