4. Le Cellier Wine Bar
Where: 417 W Washington Blvd, Marina del Rey 6-10 pm
What: Sip wine and connect with what we all love most about Venice Beach and So-cal— the beach.  Painter Todd Goodman truly encapsulates the essence of the pacific ocean in his acrylic paintings, highlighting some of his beach and surf scenes and Santa Monica Pier sunsets.  Also featured will be the incredibly talented Joel Harris and his acrylic paintings on canvas— pairs best with Merlot or Sangria.

Artists: Todd Goodman and Joel Harris



5. Drew Blood – Pool Paintings
Where: 417 Rose – Please enter in the alley behind Venice Ranch Market   6 – 9 pm

What: Come check out Drew Blood’s newest work on canvas and paper. As a rollerblader growing up in the Midwest, the Southern California skate lifestyle was always a huge influence on his “Pool Painting” series, a series he has been dedicated to for four years.  The artist states  “These empty vessels serve as reminders of the post war idea of the backyard as an oasis; Areas of former opulence that have fallen to shambles; Accidental sculptures with unknown kinetic potential; Southern California 60 years later.”
