This full color limited edition Giclee' print of a typical Venetian scene with a charming bridge, ancient palazzo, and gondola was painted by Muncy artist Judy Tamagno. It will be raffled off this weekend at the Church of Resurrection during their annual Christmas bazaar.

MUNCY – Painter and artist, Judy Tamagno and her husband visited Venice Italy some years ago and she completed several watercolor paintings and pen and inks of the “most wonderful and magical of cities.”

“This is my first full color limited edition Giclee’ print of a typical Venetian scene with a charming bridge, ancient palazzo, and gondola,” she said.

Venice, with only an area of about 6 square miles, boasts approximately 400 bridges, and hundreds of canals to explore by boat, and there are tiny alleys to discover by foot according to Tamagno.

“There are no vehicles in Venice as there are no roads, but you will do a lot of walking,” she said. There are large water buses, called Vaporetto, which circumnavigate the entire city and make stops up and down some of the larger canals, as well as crossing the lagoon to deposit travelers to one of the many other islands.

There are also hundreds of churches, housing some of the most beautiful and famous artwork the world has ever seen. “Venice is endlessly fascinating and it would take more than a lifetime to explore all its wonders,” she said.

The print will be offered as a raffle prize at the annual Christmas Bazaar this Friday and Saturday at the Church of the Resurrection in Muncy.

There will be delicious food served all day, a wide selection of Christmas craft items, and several quality raffle prizes.
