Spin, home of museum-quality rare and classic cars, will be opening their Venice gallery space to the paintings of Carlos Vera. On Sunday, September 30th, Spin will be open during the Abbot Kinney Street Festival presenting "Knee Deep and Still Blowing," featuring the paintings of L.A.-based Carlos Vera.

Inspired by the resiliant spirit of the musicians of New Orleans, this show features eight large-format oil on canvas paintings. Five of the works will be displayed in finished form, while Carlos will be live-painting the remaining three in the Spin Gallery during the day on Sunday. Between the hours of Noon and 6 p.m. people are invited to wander in and out of the Gallery and enjoy the soulful beats of DJ Braden as they see the artist at work. The paintings will be sold via silent auction during the day, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Voice of the Wetlands, a non-profit organization benefitting Louisiana's wetlands, wildlife and it's people..
