The upcoming program at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art looks like a perfect fit for those of us who appreciate modern architecture.  As part of the Site and Senses: The Architecture of Aidlin Darling Design exhibition that is showing at the museum through March 2, 2014, Icons of Modern Architecture will be hosted by art historian Ann Wiklund and will investigate modern design, including the influence that Bauhaus has had on Modernist architecture.

The program will be organized into four categories:

  • Designs for Living features single and multi-family housing.
  • Centers of Power puts a focus on business and commercial architecture.
  • Places of Worship looks at how modern design and tradition faith interact.
  • Travel, Leisure, and Learning includes

I just learned about a fabulous new exhibition that has been showing at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento since mid-November.  I feel like I’m a little late to the party – but as they say, better late than never.  The exhibit will run through February 23, 2014, so it isn’t too late to head over to Sacramento to see this fabulous collection of Warren MacKenzie’s work.

MacKenzie is an influential ceramist/potter and teacher who has contributed a great deal to the world of American Studio pottery.  Striking a balance between form and function, and influenced by the aesthetics of Japanese and Korean ware, MacKenzie’s work has the simple clean lines that we Modernists appreciate and the “usability” that we all look for in everyday life.

I’m excited about the new exhibit that kicks off tonight with a members’ reception at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.  Created to appeal to all you contemporary design buffs out there, the show features the award winning, San Francisco based firm of Aidlin Darling in the exhibition Site and Senses: The Architecture of Aidlin Darling Design.  Running from December 20, 2013 to March 2, 2014, the exhibit takes an innovative, multi-sensory approach to the impact that architecture has on our lives.

As part of the exhibit, the museum is offering a public educational program on two Tuesdays in January (January 14 + January 21) titled Icons of Modern Architecture.  This seminar will take a look at some of the modern era’s most notable buildings.

I’m sure

We Bay Area Eichler homeowners are lucky enough to live in an area where there is always something interesting going on, and no time of year is more exciting than the Christmas season.  Each town and city is full of holiday lights, craft fairs, and local festivities.  Performances of The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol, and holiday concerts can be found throughout the Bay Area.  Something that is somewhat unique to our area in northern California are the lighted boat parades that bring a fun element to our celebrations.

This weekend brings two parades that you and your family, as well as your friends and neighbors, are sure to enjoy.  Closest to home (for me, at least) is the 26th Annual Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade  + Fireworks where you can enjoy eats,

Wow!  I can’t believe we finally have our new website up and running.  The new site has updated info on every Eichler community in the South Bay and Peninsula as well as Eichler neighborhoods in Marin, the East Bay, and San Francisco.  We’ll continue to add resources for Eichler homeowners as we find them – and would love to hear from you about your experiences with remodels, repairs, etc.  Our goal is to make this site a “one stop” experience for Eichler homeowners and prospective buyers, as well as a fun and informative place to visit for anyone interested in Mid-Century Modern style.  Take a look around our new, expanded Eichler For Sale website and let me know what you think!
