40+ Artists To Take Part In Venice ArtBlock this Sunday, June 7

The Venice ArtBlock returns bigger and better this Sunday, June 7, with more than 40 artists from about two dozen galleries opening up their doors to the public from 11 am to 6 pm.

Venice artists are perhaps some of the most fiercely independent, eclectic, colorful, and inspiring people you might find anywhere in the world.

They have finally organized themselves into a coherent group with the singular purpose of celebrating the products and processes of the highly creative mind.

Venice artists began to meet on a regular basis, eventually forming an artist-run collective, Venice ArtBlock.

The group gradually expanded studio by studio to include painters, sculptors, ceramicists, glass artists, street artists, conceptual artists, and photographers focused on creating inspiring, interactive studio events in Venice.

The artist-run Venice ArtBlock Open Studios Tour is completely free and open to the public – this year is set to be the most creative yet.

“This is a long overdue program for all Venice artists to be able to expose their work to our community, to meet each other, and create a more intimate community for all Venice artists,” said Emily Winters, Venice Arts Council co-founder. “It is a unique opportunity to experience local artists creative environments and personal work, allowing the public to see art where it’s made, and to meet and talk to the artists in an informal setting, developing relationships and discovering great local art.”

As Sandy Bleifer of the ArtBlock, says, “Venice has always been such a community with its high tolerance for diversity of origins, ethnicity, ideology, and expressions.”
