Tessellate Presents Tim Roller at Wallflower Venice

Wallflower Venice.jpg

Wallflower Venice, a relative newcomer to the Rose Ave. dining scene, and one of the best spots in town for a modern twist on Southeast Asian flavors (and cocktails), recently added brunch to its repertoire. The menu moves from American staples like egg sandwiches and biscuits with jam to savory dishes including Chinese barbecue pork belly and chicken satay.

There's also a rotating selection of artwork on display in the rustic-modern dining room interiors designed by Dustin Miles (Venice Beach Wines). And starting Sunday, July 31, Tim Roller's work will be on display, mixed-media pieces that utilize a variety of materials, from wood and glass tile, to crystals and rope. The show is presented by Tessellate, which creates multi-sensory experiences of music and art. To commence Roller's month-long residency, Wallflower Venice is hosting a special brunch with what they've described as dreamy daytime musical vibes from Ken Satellite.
