Recchiuti & Creativity Explored
Recchiuti of San Francisco released a brand new collection of art-adorned chocolates. This is the third in the Creativity Explored series featuring the work of Vincent Jackson, Bay Arae artist and long-time CE studio contributor.
Pieces of Burnt Caramel chocolate serve as tiny canvases inspiring the artist to create beautiful compelling images.
Vincent Jackson was born in 1961 and is a San Francisco native. He has been an artist in the Creativity Explored studio since 1984. He is known for large-scale figurative oil pastels with heavy layers of color and thick defining lines. The translation onto the chocolates is fabulous!
Recchiuti is donating $2 from the purchase of each box goes directly to Creativity Explored, a nonprofit visual arts center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit and sell art.
These chocolates are beautiful and delicious, and Creativity Explored is a wonderful organization. Hats Off to Recchiuti for supporting CE.
If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can Meet the Artist on July 2. Reception at the Ferry Building. 10-2. Free.
