2013 Bay Area A-List

March 20th, 2013

spikesI am delighted to announce that for the second year in a row I was named Best Local Blogger in ABC 7’s Bay Area A-List for my Arts and culture blog, Postdiluvian Photo! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me!

Taking 2nd in the tight race for Best Blogger was Stacie Tamaki’s Flirty Blog. She’s a class act and worth checking out. Other winners in that “Local Flavor” category include Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi for Best Locally Grown Athlete, and Sarah & Vinnie, to whom I listen every morning on Alice at 97.3 FM, for Best Radio Personality.

Other art-related winners:

Consistently a finalist, Quent Cordair Fine Art, in Napa, was named Best Art Gallery, edging out ArtHaus, which won the title the previous three years. The highest ranked gallery in the East Bay (7th overall), is K Gallery at Rhythmix Cultural Works, in Alameda.

After placing 2nd to the California Academy of Sciences for Best Museum the last two years, the de Young grabbed the top spot. SFMOMA placed third.

If your body is your art gallery, Sacred Rose in Berkeley and Albany is still the place to get inked and pierced.

Flax Art & Design in SF is the best place for Arts and Crafts for the third year in a row.

Looking to be entertained? American Conservatory Theater was named Best Theatre Group, again, and Castro Theatre is still the Best Indie Cinema.

Getting hitched? check out Best Wedding Photographer IQphoto Studio, and videographer Bay Area VDO Production. When you need pictures of your babies, voters say take your spawn to Nancy Alcott Baby + Child Photography. Take your four-legged “children” to The Furrtographer. (Clever name!) And when it’s time to get those pictures framed, go to Creative Framing & Gallery in Oakland, the Best Custom Framing shop for the third year running.

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!
