OPENING RECEPTION: Dotan Saguy: Venice Beach, The Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise

Join us for the premiere of photographer Dotan Saguy’s stunning photo documentary about the extraordinary but endangered culture of Venice Beach. His meticulously composed, compassionate photographs unabashedly praise the rarity of the unique individuals who populate the sands of Venice. Unfortunately, Venice Beach sits on the edge of a knife, as the forces of gentrification and corporate expansion threaten to squash the way of life that has defined Venice for decades. Allow yourself to be mesmerized—as Dotan Saguy has been—by this way of life, before it fades away.

OPENING RECEPTION: Marian Crostic: Salt | Air

Venice Arts presents a solo exhibition by Venice-based photographer Marian Crostic. The exhibition showcases three recent bodies of work from the artist’s Salt | Air series: Sea Change, Sandscapes, and Salt | Air. Each of these focuses on a different aspect of Venice Beach, documented during Crostic’s morning walks. Ethereal and tenuous, these images reveal an abstracted, introspective view of the beach and ocean environment.
