Falling for Venice
My friend Celia Latz is tapping into her 32 years of living and working as an artist in Venice to pull together a special small-group tour of the city. I am helping out. We will have uncommon access to Venice's cultural elites and artists, who happen to be Celia's friends. Think dinner in an 18th century palazzo on a canal with a view of Renaissance buildings across the water, hosted by someone who traces their heritage to the founders of the city state. Also, think of taking the boat ferry to Murano to visit the studio of one of Venice's pre-eminent glass artists, not one of the people who churn out trinkets or glasses for the masses but someone who makes works for the most stately homes, glamorous embassies, important state works and exclusive hideaways in the world.
Celia and I will be talking about this trip on September 28, from 5:30 - 7:30pm at the Brian Marki Gallery.
