Mosaic tile house open for Venice Art Walk

Every surface is a canvas for artists Cheri Pann and Gonzalo Duran, who have covered the walls, floors and landscape of their Venice home with mosaic tiles, broken plates, figurines -- even teacups. See it for yourself Sunday when the artists open their home -- the subject of an L.A. Times piece in 2003 -- for the annual Venice Art Walk & Auctions.

Other artists on the tour include Corrine Chaix, whose live-work studio is located on a Venice canal; the Winward Street live-work space of Jacob Kassay, who will host a pop-up show of works by Cooper Jacoby, Todd von Ammon and Steven Baldi.

Tickets to the event are $50, with all proceeds benefiting the Venice Family Clinic. Some tours will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; others will run from noon to 4 p.m. A silent art auction will be held at the Frank Gehry-designed Google Los Angeles, sometimes called the Binoculars Building, 340 Main St., Venice.
