studio day & art night venezia


A quiet day in the studio – cleared the objects and drawing from the table (above) and made a new sheet for the table, again from many smaller sheets taped together.

I sat in the garden after lunch with Gilberto and Alvisa joined us.

After dinner I visited the Cannaregio ‘art night venezia’ sites – like Nuit Blanche in Paris and elsewhere, galleries and museums are open late. At Scuola Internazionale di Grafica I spoke with Deirdre Kelly – hugely informative, helpful and interested – and attended a presentation of residents work. Leaving there at 10pm, I went on to Scuola Grande della Misericordia…


…and The Wilmotte Foundation, where I met some familiar forms in the work of Omar Hassan…


…and wandered on through the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo and the alleys of Cannaregio.
