VAC March 2015
The Venice Art Crawl now happens quarterly and I attended the event on March 19, 2015. That means the next one is going to be happening next month in JUNE. It may not be too late to participate and it is definitely not to late to plan to attend. JUNE is my birthday month so I am not sure I will be going or not yet. It depends how I feel. I am an artist after all. We are guided by our hears and intuition.
The Crawl so far does not keep to the same part of Venice each quarter. Which is I think probably helpful to the community as a whole as the ARTS are not limited to one area of the community. IN March the event took place further South with some Galleries in Marina Del Rey participating as well as closure of part of Abbot Kinney. There was also an AFTERCRAWL party at Half a Dozen Roses.
See the photo gallery below and the VAC website for details of the JUNE 19 Venice Art Crawl. Just FYI there is now a $25 fee to participate as an artist, but that gives you publicity and you must organize and coordinate your own event. IN other words find a space willing to showcase your work in Venice.
SEE MEETUP. There is a VAC Meetup group run by the VAC President, photographer Sunny Bak. Some of the food establishments hung images and photos on their walls for patrons to observe as they ate.
Several of the March events acted as a means to raise money for Charity. For example one store auctioned off art designed bags to raise money for P.S. Aets. Good Neighbors sponsored an art show of photos of their work, along with beautiful images of horses and fish and an auction of images to raise money for their cause to build a global community. In particular the event focused on their efforts to ensure good drinking water for people in the Caribbean and Africa.
IN the closed of section of road Eclectic Hoops and Hoop Girl sold hoops for people to use to play to the live music being performed. If I were to become a teacher I would want to learn to teach Hoops. I thought about Yoga at one point. It is tough when you are raised in a household governed by the government of the US and conservative perspectives. Art can’t be a job. Health can’t be a job. I have to be what was expected of me over 13 years ago when I walked away from a life I hated and wanted nothing to do with it anymore. That is why I built this sight. That way of life and thinking, one generation pushing down the next to be just the same, is strangling the best of us. Not everyone in America lives the same as another, and well standards of perspective are different. Normal dress code for Los Angeles is jeans and a nice shirt, while in New York and DC jeans and a t shirt are for weekends and maybe Friday if your lucky. I don’t want dry cleaning bills.
Also note once again A Window Between Worlds was present. They let participants make a tiny glass paperweight with an self made image. I love them.
