Featuring Venice & Santa Monica Artists at Fab Studio Saturday, January 21, 6-9pm
A fire burned down Flavio Bisciotti’s home art studio in Venice a year ago. After the initial shock of losing his art, he came up with the idea to salvage the remains of the fire to create new artworks. Flavio’s concept is a collaborative effort including Venice and Santa Monica artists.
