Berkeleyside would very much like to express its gratitude to our current advertisers:
The mood was mellow outside Bows & Arrows on Telegraph Avenue this afternoon, with around 20 people camped outside the hip fashion store waiting, and waiting, for a certain coveted shoe to “drop”.
The expansive, elegant home that has just come on the market at 1345 Arch Street looks like it has all the elements one associates with the best, quintessentially Berkeley homes. There’s the brown shingle, of course, and the many Craftsman touches, as well as artistic interiors, lots of outdoor space, and Bay views. The cherry on top is that it is walking distance to the Cheese Board and Chez Panisse.
ETHEREAL ART Pop-up art shows seem to be all the rage these days, but don’t miss Stephen Maffin’s, which runs from June 7 through Sunday June 10 with an opening reception at 7 pm Friday at 1625 Stannage Avenue. Maffin applies a layer of plaster to burlap and then forms it against plate glass to provide a flat, smooth ground for painting. Once dried, the working surface is sealed. After it dries, Maffin breaks the plaster surface, creating a pattern of cracks that he stains and then paints. The result is multi-layerd and a bit ethereal.

Let us now praise soulful women. Linda Tillery and Faye Carol aren’t merely charismatic singers with an encyclopedic command of African American musical idioms. They’re activists who have devoted their lives to tending the roots so that rising generations can draw spiritual sustenance from that same gloriously rich culture.
