Open Show LA is excited to celebrate the 23rd Anniversary of Venice Arts by hosting a special event that will feature a few of the fantastic photographers who have generously donated a print to be auctioned off at the 23rd Anniversary Gala. The work that Venice Arts does to keep the arts alive in the community is commendable and we are proud of our ongoing partnership with them.

Join us on the night of October 18 to hear artist presentations and get a sneak peak at the prints that will be available at the Gala & Auction on November 5th.



Time Memory And The Moon

J. K. Lavin

After deconstructing my family home, I stepped outside under a full moon and felt strangely at peace. A ritual began that night of photographing by the light of the full moon. A sense of night and timelessness allows me to experience a world where I feel most at home.


The Acting Hand

Brian Van de Wetering

This series examines how we attribute responsibility for the death and destruction in our lives. We all feel drawn to imagine some intent behind these events whether random, accidental, or intentional: an Acting Hand. This hand comes to life in my series of vignettes depicting unfortunate events.


Prior Pleasures

Ellen Cantor

Prior Pleasures is deeply influenced by my love of literature. This series explores memory and preservation of the past while ensuring the creation of a visual legacy for the next generation.
