Grand Opening of South Beaches Gallery =- Melbourne Beach Florida


THE MAGICAL COLOR PALETTE OF OUR WORLD



 Ocean Art Gallery’s Top Selling
Artist Featured in February

FLAGLER BEACH, FLOn Friday, February 3, from 6 – 8 pm, photographic artist Kenny Fasnacht will welcome the public to his month-long art show entitled “The Magical Color Palette of Our World.” Admission to his Art Opening Reception is free and guests will enjoy live music and light refreshments.

In 2016 Fasnacht became the top selling artist at Ocean Art Gallery by capturing the natural beauty of Flagler County in stunning photographs on metal. His vibrant images now adorn the walls of art lovers in Flagler, St. Johns and Volusia Counties.

Fasnacht’s art is inspired by his religious and spiritual connection to the Creator through nature and wildlife. To him, his Creator is in everything Fasnacht sees through his camera lens. He recognized the direct connection between his beliefs and his photographs, with that connection showing in the titles of his artwork, such as "His Path," His Glorious Golden Morning,” and "Walk with Me.”

After retiring from a 20-year career in the Navy, Fasnacht coached football at Nease High School in St. Augustine for five years before moving to Palm Coast with his wife, Lee. He is an active member of the Flagler Beach Photography Club and has shown his art at Ocean Art Gallery since 2014. Fasnacht is most known for his breathtaking sunset and sunrise photographs, as well as local landscapes and oceanscapes that often include the Flagler Beach Pier.

Everyone is welcome to the Reception, which will occur simultaneously with Flagler Beach’s First Friday event across Moody Blvd in Veterans Park. Friday night is a great dining night in downtown Flagler Beach and Ocean Art Gallery is right in the center of the activity, with over 12 restaurants within four blocks. Parking for the Reception is free and plentiful right behind the gallery.

The canvas and the painting process has been allowed to shed its skin, and expand into the fullness of how it is here to serve you, as a portal into your truth as an infinitely creative being.  Whitney will also lead us through 3 different SOUND JOURNEYS with drums, singing bowls and more to more fully connect with your multi-dimensional self.

Child's Play - A Journey into Imagination with Lisa Mistiuk at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery

 
Exhibit dates: January 31 - February 26, 2017 

On February 3 there will be a First Friday Opening Reception at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm to celebrate the opening of Child’s Play, A Journey Into Imagination. The exhibit opens to the public on January 31st and will run through February 26. This collection of work will reflect the most recent work of Lisa Mistiuk, a Michigan artist. 

Mistiuk has studied art from Germany to San Francisco, turning her skills into strong oil paintings with an emphasis on the elements that make up our everyday lives.

“...one of the things I love about capturing pieces of life in paint - it really gives me a chance to reflect and absorb things and share them. With so much done today by the push of a button it’s nice to slow down and take time over something. In painting there isn’t a button to push - you must invest time. First the time in learning all the technical ins and outs - which takes years, then time searching for that special subject matter and finally the time that goes into each piece of art” says Mistiuk.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the artist's talk has been cancelled. However, Lisa will be donating a percentage of earnings from her show to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central FloridaBig Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida matches volunteer one-on-one mentors with at risk boys and girls in Brevard. 

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is in the Eau Gallie Art’s District in Melbourne, FL.

REIN GELEIJNSE FEATURED PHOTOJOURNALIST ART AND ANTIQUE STUDIO and GALLERY FEBRUARY – 2017






Artist Statement:



“A photojournalist – Recording the world a different way”


  

About The Artist: 



Rein Geleijnse was born in Rotterdam in the Netherlands in a small old village called Oud Beijerland (founded in 1559). 



Rein started out in engineering but soon changed his goal to photojournalism.  He established his own advertising agency and provided photos and stories for newspapers and magazines, in the Netherlands, for over 35 years.  Rein eventually sold his business and started to take photos in a more casual way.  Rein’s photos capture the dreams that everyone has, but reflects the “strange and unusual” in each photo. 



Rein is now a “Florida Snowbird”, spending six months in the Netherlands and the USA.   He still takes photo assignments when he visits the Netherlands because photography and journalism is an addiction to him, even to this day.



Opening Reception - Friday, February 3, 2017 – 5:30 – 8:30pm.    Location:  Art and Antique Studio – 1429 Highland Avenue – Eau Gallie Arts District
