A Celebration of Trees

SFluxe is really looking forward to the April 23 art auction, Arcadia: Artists Celebrate Trees, which will take place at the California Modern Gallery (1035 Market St.) It will feature original artwork with a tree theme from over 100 Bay Area artists (such as “Healing Circle,” by artist Marlene Aron, above.) Funds raised through the auction will allow Friends of the Urban Forest to plant and care for trees throughout the City.

I know you think your SFluxe Editor only cares about clothes and boys, but it’s not true — I’m mad for nature. In fact, I’d love to own this particular tree.

Made by Faberge in 1911, this tree of diamonds, gold, citrines, amethysts, rubies, pearls, agate and nephrite is just the perfect little thing for nature lovers like me.
