Venice Art Block Part One
The Venice Art Block is an area of Venice where artists live and work. It is a place where artists create, show and teach their trade. The arts range from Photography, to painting, ceramics, multi media, jewelry, fashion, stone, and glass. The slide show is pretty extensive with over 30 pictures. I had to break this piece into two parts because there were 24 plus locations. I managed to go to about 20 of them.
Starting at 360 Sunset Ave with the galleries of Pamela Weir-Quiton, Gregory Weir Quiton, and Patrick Johnston Ceramics, this one large spaced housed wooden statues and a workshop, paintings, and beautiful crafted pottery.
361 Vernon Avenue: the Distillery consisted of multiple studios. The artists included Marlen Lugo and MB Boissonnault, Kate Wolfgang Savage, Eric Schwabel, Photographer who was on hand to take photos of people in the “rain.” Gary Palmer, Jaclyn Wiseman, Patrick Morris, Elizabeth Orleans, Budman Studio, Bisco Smith. andMonica Perez. I spoke to Savage and Perez both very talented women, and Morris has truly captured the love of his muse.
Mike Weber’s studio was closed. I believe I also did not see Martin Katon’s work. Scott Slagerman is the beautiful glass work. And Erik Thorkildson opened his apartment to the event. His are the photos in the apartment of the beautiful organic bright oil paintings.
Believe it or not this is only the first 6 locations listed on the ART BLOCK map. There was a lot to see in just a 5 block area.
