Weekend of Art

By garrett

Happy friday kiddies.

It is my great civic duty to let you all know about two great art shows to check this weekend if you are out and about in the Venice area.

First show is this Saturday and will showcase three local, up-and-coming artists - Pascal Shirley, Jeff Hastings, & Jeneph Gaetti.

The event will be hosted by Garrett Leight, who is momentarily stepping away from his role as eyewear entrepreneur and trying his hand as patron of the arts.

Our good friends at Brakeman Brewery will be providing the beverages while the lovely Erica Fairchild and Helen Nishi will be crushing it on the sonic level with their musical selections.

All profits to benefit the Westminster Elementary School here in Venice.

Starts at 7pm, Details below...

Next event is on Sunday and will be held at the prestigious L&M gallery on Venice Blvd. The name of the event is GHOST TOWN and it is the inaugural benefit for The Venice Family Clinic.

Offering a fresh take on the traditional benefit, GHOST TOWN welcomes art patrons and beach-goers alike to enjoy an evening of culture and live musical entertainment by Tenacious D and Haim, as well as refreshments provided by Gjelina and other local Venice establishments.

The event is pricey but seems to be well worth it. More info here.
