Art In The Afternoon: Venice Art Forum

On Sunday a friend and I attended the exhibit “Studio Visions” with works by The Venice Art Forum Group at The Center for Art and Spirit in Venice, California. We were invited by our mutual friend, Barbara Golbin, who was showing four of her paintings.

Other artists in the exhibit included Ciya, Debra Gangale, Carole Garland, Linda Jacobson, Regine Legler, Melissa Reischman, and Jean Wolff. I know several of the artists and it is always interesting to see their new creations.

Linda, who created the group and was the host, converted the garage of her house into a well-thought-out art studio/gallery with natural light, work areas, and plenty of wall space to accommodate exhibits.

After viewing the paintings we enjoyed sitting out in the garden chatting with friends and admiring the bougainvillea.

Linda provided a nice spread of grapes, cheese, crackers, and wine. At 3:30 there was a drumming session with maracas for those of us who wanted to join in the noise-making.

This was a very pleasant, informal afternoon of art and socializing.
