Special ‘Taste for Art’ lunch and dinner prix fixe menus will be offered for the duration of the exhibit ArtAtHals.com.
“In the tradition of Brughel, Daumier and Koons, a ‘Taste for Art’ celebrates humor and whimsy in serious fine art,” says V-SCAPE’s co-founder, Aldis Browne. V-SCAPE has been organizing and curating exhibitions in the Venice - Santa Monica area since 2004. From its opening in 1987, Hal Frederick’s dedication to painting, sculpture and music established Hal’s Bar & Grill as a Venice community arts landmark.
Together, Hal’s and V-SCAPE will launch Hal's Gallery Dining Room with a public after-party immediately following the close of the Art Walk.
The Venice Art Walk after-party kicks off at 7 pm on Sunday, May 18th. We will feature a performance and the Los Angeles premiere of My Dinner with the Klines, a 12-minute looped video, from 7 to 8pm, followed by Jazz at Hals from 8 to 11. Debby and Larry Kline are leading conceptual, performance and visual artists who work with, among other things, restaurant-found materials. In 2012, The Klines funded volume 1 of My Dinner with The Klines, a DVD and coffee-table book set, with the help of Kickstarter. For a preview of The Klines at work, visit: CollectTheKlines.com.
Hosted by V-SCAPE co-founder artist Corinne Chaix, guests to the after-party and book signing can view: the exhibition, the Klines performance, their video and some of their recent restaurant sculpture.
The TasteForArt.com website was contributed by V-SCAPE’s co-founder Aldis Browne’s MISSIONLINES.com. The design for the exhibition site, donated by NetStarStudio.com, includes a visitors' guide to Venice, links to information about the exhibiting artists, and more about Hal’s.
On through July 30th, it’s a 'don't miss' exhibition.
