See my article in the Santa Monica Mirror about Vicky and how she affected all of us in our Venice community.

The event will run from 6:00 pm till 9:00 pm in conjuction with the Venice Art Crawl. See LA Art Party’s Thursday Events for additional art crawl happenings. Our weekly post goes up every Wednesday at noon.

lowres VictoriaBarcelona 2012Figtree’s Café has been participating in the crawl since it’s inception. Vicky Barcelona was a big supporter of arts and a kind, sweet spirit. She will be missed. I can speak as a singer/musician, and friend. Vicky hired me to perform jazz at Figtree’s Cafe, she also attended several gigs of mine at other venues. She loved music and the arts.

Vicky was very involved in booking the artists as part of the Venice Art Crawl. I had the chance to work closely with Vicky. I helped her book many artists at Figtree’s. I sent her links to websites and art for her to review. She always made sure to look through everything and even visited their studios/homes to select the perfect piece for Figtree’s Cafe.

If you are not familiar with the Café, it is known for its healthy delicious food, located right on the Venice boardwalk at 429 Ocean Front Walk Venice, at Paloma Ave, two blocks south of Rose.

Tansey’s most recent trip to Patagonia inspired him to capture incredible images of mountain ranges, icebergs and rarely captured landscapes.

A dedicated photographer, Tansy has traveled the world in search of magnificent landscapes.  On expeditions, scott is always the first one up and last to return. Tansey’s work will be on view at the Cafe until January 15th.
