Venice Art Crawl: May 17th

Head down to the Venice Art Crawl Thursday for an evening of art and culture. 

By Mirror Media Staff Writer

The Venice Art Crawl (VAC) will hold their second crawl of the year on Thursday, May 17, 2018, 6-10 p.m. Instead of having art events throughout the city, as past years, this year the VAC will focus on four specific areas, the second one being on Venice Boulevard, between Lincoln Boulevard and the beach. This stretch of Venice Boulevard is becoming known by the locals as the Arts District.

In an effort to outreach to a new generation of Venice artists, the VAC will offer free creative workshops to K-5 students from local elementary schools at the Venice-Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library, 501 Venice Boulevard. The Kidz Creative Camp workshops will cater to the student’s school hours starting at 3 p.m. and will promote the spirit of Venice with: painting on ceramics, storybook making, colorful chalk drawing, recycle art, and more.

The workshops will be taught by Venetian artists Gary Palmer, Monica Palacios, Sandra Zebi, Cynthia Rojas and others. Children book authors will be present sharing their stories. Actor and artist Paul Michael Glaser of popular 70’s TV show Starsky & Hutch, will read from his book Chrystallia and The Source of Light. First-time authors Faye Livesey and Derek Moser will be reading from their books Fezzy The Magical Fox and Creepy Little TV Guy. Maria Emetti reads from her book Going H’om’e. Sandra Sandia will be leading an outdoor drum circle and outside, artist Leebs will be presenting an all in-one-carnival-like bean bag ring toss game for the students–winners will receive prizes! Sandra Sandia will organize a drum circle to kick off the evening festivities at 6 p.m. Close by EAT ART featuring portraits of Venice artists in their studios by photographer Debbie Zietman at Wabi-Sabi, 1635 Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Then head towards the ocean and visit the Alkaline Water Gallery, 18 North Venice Boulevard, owner Leila Levi will be showing 7 Women including Michele Pelletier, Mildred Rivera and Karen Gladstone. A skip away and you’ll find yourself at the beachside eatery and bar James Beach, 60 North Venice Boulevard, where there will be more art on display. One block south of James Beach, visit the Sunny Bak Studio, 2214 Pacific Avenue, where Monica Seggos will be presenting a performance art piece titled: The Broken Heart Repair Shop: Version One: The Doctor’s Office, giving prescriptions for your broken heart dressed in nurse attire. Come sit with Nurse Candy Frost and explore this interactive installation. Also at the studio outside in the garden, Maron Hamilton will have her fine art photography on display.

Note: An earlier version of this story said that actor Lori Petty would be displaying her art at James Beach. After publishing the story, Petty reached out to Yo! Venice saying that she is no longer able to attend the event. We apologize for the mistake.
