SF20/21, San Francisco’s preeminent 20th and 21st century art and design show, may be gone; but don’t despair as it has been replaced by FOG Design + Art fair. Many of the players, sponsors and exhibitors are returning to what I am sure will be the highlight of the beginning of 2014.
The not to be missed show will run from January 17th through January 19th at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion and will feature over 40 prominent twentieth-century and contemporary design dealers and modern art galleries from the Bay Area and across the country. It will also include lectures and interactive discussions with leaders from the worlds of art and design. Among them will be London-based architect Ron Arad, interior designer and FOG steering committee member Douglas Durkin, and hot young galerist Jessica Silverman
21POP, the pop up atelier conceived and curated by Stanlee Gatti, returns exploring design and culinary art this year.

Some tickets are still available for the opening night gala on January 16th benefitting the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. I hope you will be able to join me for signature cocktails, culinary creations by McCall’s and live entertainment by Jason Kendig (Honey Sound System). Technology titans Brian Chesky (co-founder and CEO of Airbnb), Mark Pincus (co-founder of Zynga) and wife Alison Pincus (co-founder of One Kings Lane), Hosain Rahman (founder and CEO of Jawbone), Dave Morin (founder of Path) will join the festivities along with fellow committee members, industrial designer Yves Béhar, interior designer Douglas Durkin, and galerists Jeffrey Fraenkel, Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman. Plus every art and design aficionado in town will be there.
