  • About EAT ART

    The heart of Venice has always been its local artists. EAT ART will help ensure these artists are supported, integrated and remain at the center of our community.


    Starting on April 11th at WABI SABI VENICE, EAT ART will present a series of events to promote Venice artists work within restaurant spaces on Abbot Kinney. Our goal is to showcase the artists' work and provide an opportunity for people to meet the artists and schedule studio visits.


    April 11th - EAT ART Opening for Barbara Lavery

    June 13th - EAT ART Opening for Rohitash Rao

    September 11th - EAT ART Opening for Alejandro Gehry


    Each monthly event will feature one Venice artist whose work will hang for one month in the restaurant. Artists will provide postcards/contact information to be distributed through the restaurant during the month.


    As more restaurants join the EAT ART effort, multiple artists will be featured in multiple locations. EAT ART diners can visit one restaurant for cocktails & appetizers, one for dinner and one for dessert. Signature cocktails and dishes will be created in the EAT ART theme.

  • EAT ART - Artist Alejandro Gehry

    Alejandro Gehry

    Alejandro grew up going to art openings around Venice, seeing work by Ed Moses, Laddie John Dill, Chuck Arnoldi, Ed Ruscha, Billy Al Bengston, and more. “I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing if I didn't have that kind of exposure."


    "Everyone responds to something in their own way and that's the beauty of it. That's what makes art great and alive." And regarding Venice: "It wouldn't be this great space without the artists who put this place on the map."


    Alejandro's work is showing at Wabi Sabi, September 11th onwards.
