One of the reasons Karen moved to Venice in 1990, and stayed, is the free-spirited artistic vibe this urban beach town exudes. This NY transplant who is an amateur artist, has been known to sell her work when approached. Karen is an avid art connoisseur and wants to help keep art alive in Venice. She also comes from a family of artists and understands the value of supporting them. Come out to our events and see why Venice and art is such an awesome pairing.

For me, the Venice Art Crawl is the perfect intersection of two passions, creativity and community. I love the magic that happens when we work to create those moments. It’s all about connection and something that moves or inspires you.

Sandra Zebi

Sandra Zebi is an artist from Sao Paulo, Brazil that has been based in the Venice area for the past thirty years. Her work is primarily ceramics and mixed media paintings. She has her own style with distinct and vibrant colors made up of cheerful and graceful images, used to convey positive messages.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

A vibrant community culture that flows with creativity is our secret
