Metamorphosis -The Transformative Art of Joe Thompson at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery


Exhibit runs: June 30, 2015 to June 26, 2015

Opening Reception: July 3rd, 2015    5:30 to 8:30 pm

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery invites you to the First Friday Opening for Joe Thompson's exhibit, Metamorphosis - The Transformative Art of Joe Thompson. 

Joe, a former Fifth Avenue Gallery member, is a self-taught artist from Vinings, Georgia and has been a sculptor for nearly 15 years, beginning with wood in the hills of Vermont, then moving on to steel in North Georgia. In his time away from the gallery he has also discovered house paint and a torch! The result is exciting. 

Joe Thompson is an award winning sculptor. In 2011, he was commissioned to build a twenty foot tall stainless steel sculpture for the Canaveral Port Authority in Port Canaveral, Fl. Having begun his carrier with found objects, he developed a  habit for finding cheap materials and using these materials to inspire his pieces. Joe sums up his work by saying: “I go to my shop everyday and give ART a place to happen. I feel like if I am there waiting, eventually my subconscious is going to deliver something great. You just have to be diligent and keep the faith. Endurance is more important than Truth!”

One Word at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery

Exhibit runs: July 28th - August 29th

Opening Reception: August 7, 2015    5:30 to 8:30 pm
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is pleased to announce the invitational, interactive exhibit, One Word, opening on July 28th at 1470 Highland Avenue, Eau Gallie. We all know that “a picture is worth … a thousand words”, but what happens when you ask artists to use their talents to express “one word“?

Each of the participating artists received a three word list from which they picked their “one word”, and have used their creativity to express that word. This very important, one word will be the title of their creation. The interactive part of the exhibit happens when viewers try to match the artwork to the correct title. It may not be as easy as it sounds. All artwork titles will be hidden from view until the matches have been made. 

The opening reception will be on Friday, August 7th, 5:30 PM through 8:30 PM.

Art in the Wind



There’s a nice surprise waiting for you as you approach the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts:  art flags!  



The current exhibit, “Southern Accents,” features art quilts made by members of SAQA, (Studio Art Quilt Associates.)  In support of this area SAQA members decided to decorate the covered bridge used to access the textile center.




14 artists created 22 sets of flag panels, each with five flags.  The concept is loosely based on Tibetan prayer flags, which have a similar shape and grouping format.  The idea for the Tibetan flags is that good wishes are stitched in as the flags are made.  As the flags degrade in the weather it is thought that those good wishes are released into the universe. 



The flags will remain up as long as they hold up.  Hopefully, that will be until the end of the Southern Accents exhibit, which runs through August 22nd.  It’s featured at the Ruth Funk Center for Textiles on the Florida Tech campus in Melbourne.  Hours  M-Sat., 10-4, Admission free.

Susan Stone is having a Studio Moving Sale July 24th and 25th.

Select originals and prints reduced to sell. Up to 50% (and some a bit more) off!
Yes, you read that right… up to HALF OFF original paintings and prints!!  It’s a little bit nuts, but I have to condense a bit with moving into a new studio space and don't want to have to move all of them either!.
This  won’t happen again in the near future, so if you want one of my originals or prints for next to nothing, this is the time to stop by.  
  Do you want more than one?  Make me an offer.  First come first served.  
Questions?  E-mail me at susan@jsusancolestone.com
