Casanova Art Gallery

Keith and Marina already operate a Venetian glass and fine arts gallery and a clothing boutique in
the shops of the Village on Venetian Bay.  This year they have also opened another gallery 
with some Venetian works and other photographs and paintings by American artists.


This wonderful hanging female torso is built from venetian mask forms.  Love it!
Behind are works by Stephen Harlan, a North Carolina photographer.




Chip is the host at the gallery.  He has been an arts agent for most of his career, originally
for musical artists, then photographers and later for all kinds of visual artists.

Since Carnaval is going to start within weeks here in Mazatlán this is a timely post to put me in the mood for a very noisy celebration. Very clever sculpture and the close-up helps see the individual masks.

That torso is beautiful. I wouldn't have guessed masks but I see it clearly after you pointed it out.

I would enjoy this shop very much. I love Venetian Village! There used to be a great ice cream shop there, too!

I like how it's hanging from the ceiling, it looks like it's floating.

Not up our alley but to each their own. We may have been put off Venetian glass by a bad experience on Murano, which is a serious tourist trap.

Gosh the mask sculpture is amazing Jack, what a very clever idea! The photographs look fab too, you should think about putting a few of yours in the gallery!
