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


Exhibit dates: January 31 - February 26, 2017 
___________________

During the month of February Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in Eau Gallie will welcome Lisa Mistiuk. “Child’s Play, A Journey Into Imagination” will reflect her most recent work. Lisa, a Michigan artist, 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.

She will be at the First Friday Opening Reception on Friday, February 3, 2017 and will offer a gallery talk on Saturday, February 4th at 2 pm. Both events are free and open to the public. The exhibit will run from January 31st through February 26th.

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

Rediscovering Klimt at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery



Exhibit dates: January 3 - 29, 2017
___________________

Rediscovering Klimt, a member exhibit, will open on January 3, 2017 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in Eau Gallie. Using Klimt's inspiration of gold and gold leaf in his works, the artists of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery have challenged themselves to incorporate this medium in their own work. There will be a First Friday Opening on January 6, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. 

Continuing with the energy, we will have an artist's talk on January 14 by Jini James, a member artist. "Klimt is one of my very favorites from the period. His work is very complex and contains gold leaf, a craft that he learned from his father" said James. "I learned how to apply leaf from a sign painter who provided leafing services to our boatyard customers. He even did the gold leaf restoration on the tall ship AMERICAN EAGLE". This process is available to artists and crafters alike with imitation products and Jini will show you how she applied it to her painting, now a work in progress. The talk will begin at 2 pm. Come early, seating is limited!

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Melbourne Eau Gallie Arts District.

Funk Center, Artist Garry Noland Offer Outreach to University Park


Power of Imagination Program in Third Year

 The Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts at Florida Institute of Technology recently partnered with University Park Elementary’s After School Academy for a two-part outreach event with guest artist Garry Noland.
Offered under the Ruth Funk Center’s Power of Imagination program, the “Transformers and the Power of Imagination” outreach focused on the use of unexpected materials, the role of the artist, and the power of transforming everyday/discarded objects into extraordinary art objects. The program included a behind-the-scenes tour of the Center’s current exhibit, Transformers:  Re-contextualizing Our Material Culture led by Garry Noland, in October and an outreach workshop presented at University Park Elementary in November.
The Center launched the Power of Imagination partnership in 2014 as a platform for the expansion of youth-focused community programs. Since that time, the program has increased the accessibility of art for its school-age audience while enhancing the Center’s mission to impact Florida Tech’s surrounding community. This program is supported, in part, by the Bob and Jan Case Endowment for Student Enrichment.
The program seeks to empower pre-K through sixth-grade students via the creative process, and that was evident in the University Park Elementary outreach.
Using small squares of recycled cardboard, each student, working within a group, created mini artworks composed of found and recycled materials.  The individual squares were then tied together to form one collective work reflecting the diverse perspectives and imaginations of the young artists. Their completed piece is now on display, alongside Garry Noland’s work, at the Center, where it will remain until the close of the Transformers exhibit on Dec. 17.
“Working with these young artists reminds me that art, through youth and youthful actions, rejuvenates our society,” Noland said. “Art is a synonym for the problem-solving process, and our embrace of creativity enhances our individual lives and our entire culture. I loved working with these students.”
Regular hours for the Ruth Funk Center are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. The center is next to Evans Library on the Florida Tech campus, 150 W. University Blvd. in Melbourne. Admission is free. For more information, visit http://textiles.fit.edu or call 321-674-8313.

Rediscovering Klimt at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery


Exhibit dates: January 3 - 29, 2017

Rediscovering Klimt, a member exhibit, will open on January 3, 2017 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. Work inspired by Art Nouveau artist Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918), the Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement will be the main focus of this exhibit. Using Klimt's inspiration of gold and gold leaf in his works, the artists of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery have challenged themselves to incorporate this medium in their own work. Gold and gold leaf have been used in art for millennia. It creates, when combined with intense colors, a special form of expression. This promises to be a stimulating exhibit. There will be a First Friday Opening on January 6, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. Plan to attend and meet the members and enter into spirited Klimt discussions.

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Melbourne Eau Gallie Arts District.
