The Venice Art Crawl’s mission is to foster and reinvigorate the creativity that has historically and currently makes Venice such a vibrant and dynamic 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.
Join us by attending, sharing your vision and what inspires you.
Note:There will be a $25 fee for all participating venues starting June, 2014. This gets you all relevant VAC marketing materials (banners, posters, maps), and a spot on the official VAC map.
Join us for our upcoming 2016 Venice Art Crawls! Our 2016 dates are March 17, May 19, July 21, and September 15. Get ready for your event and submit your information for the March 17, 2016 VAC by March 1st!
We will promote your event here on the site and on the official Venice Art Crawl map.
However, it is VERY important that you also promote your event through your social media and networking channels.
Your donations are much appreciated and go towards keeping the VAC alive in the community!

Luba Salps Bio: lubasalp.com
Luba Salp is an artist, surfer and cinematographer located in Los Angeles, CA. Originally from Moscow, Russia, Luba got her education in the UK, France, and Australia until settling in California where she found the most inspiration for her work.
Ambivalence is a series of photographs taken while surfing in Manhattan Beach, California. Each photograph captures the moment when a wave is about to break. This moment – one of simultaneous dread and supreme joy – represents opposing yet inseparable sides of the surfing experience. When this moment is captured as a still image and the dimension of time is removed, it opens up to an entirely abstract perception.

The Lincoln’s designer/co-owner Matt Winter, an ardent collector, discovered a cache of nearly 60 very unusual drawings by an unknown engineer/mechanic who also sidelined as a sketch artist. A number of them are on permanent display in the Lincoln and for the Art Crawl on the night we’re putting a number of additional pieces on display. Though the identity of the artist and his subjects is lost to time, the exhibition shows the evolution of his style and skill and a window into a forgotten world, rediscovered for your appreciation.
