Alex Stowell here.  Unleash your inner artist!  Dust off that skill set that you know you have, and get your art on!

Perhaps you have been too busy with earning a living to spend time creating art and trying to get it seen!  Well, that stops now!  The Venice Art Crawl makes it easy to show your art.  No more calling galleries yourself and orchestrating a showing yourself,  the VAC has all that taken care of for you.  It is a quarterly event of pop up galleries, and they are alway looking to match talent with a venue.  It is super easy to get a spot to show.  Here are the 2018 Venice Art Crawl dates!

  • March 15 – Windward Ave.
  • May 17 – Venice Blvd
  • July 19 – Washington Blvd.
  • September Venice AfterBurn

Here is a message from the Venice Art Crawl.  This year the VAC is going to be more pedestrian friendly by focusing on four specific areas: March on Windward Avenue, May on Venice Boulevard, July on Washington Boulevard and the Boardwalk for the Afterburn in September. Painters, poets, performers and musicians from the community, and all over the world, display their art in this historic beachside haven for artists.

Making the Venice Art Crawl more pedestrian friendly means we will be highlighting and focusing on events in a specific part of Venice for each crawl. For March, curate and plan your event on or very near Windward Circle. The remaining crawls will have similar focused location guidelines for that month’s area. A good way to connect with artists and businesses in each specific area is to attend our Mixers. Looking forward to seeing you at the 2018 Venice Art Crawls.

About Venice Art Crawl:  The VAC’s mission is to preserve the arts in Venice, a place that has historically been known as a vibrant and dynamic art community. Our goal is to share, inspire and promote collaboration within the Venice community through mixers and art events. We are an all volunteer run non-profit organization which is a committee of the Venice Chamber of Commerce..

Thankfully, it is going strong into its eight year.  A big fist bump to all the folks who have participated, and volunteered through the years!
