Visions of Italy by Phyllis Shipley at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery


Exhibit dates: October 3-30, 2016

The month of October will see Fifth Avenue Art Gallery hosting gallery member Phyllis Shipley's Visions of Italy. Phyllis has been producing fine art for the past thirty years and has been a successful gallery owner, a successful art show participant and award winner, and a continuing student in the details of water color and acrylics. 

Shipley says “My paintings begin with pouring, glazing or washes of color. As I manipulate the paint, an image begins to develop. I strive to get out of the way and let spirit take control.” She uses color to express energy, life and excitement. Her hope is to create art that is full of color, energetic, joy, and excitement.

Shipley, a native of Johnson City, Tennessee, uses her intuition to create loose and flowing colors with a musical fluidity of expression. Phyllis began painting in the early 1980’s. After years of playing and teaching music with the organ and piano, raising children, and a successful career as a purchasing executive with a major chemical corporation, the time was right to pursue her dream and passion. Painting for her is like a musical score, expressing emotion and beauty in the brush as the melody rings in our ears. 

She is an exhibiting member at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. Phyllis is also currently an exhibiting artist at the newly opened Art Avenue Gallery located in Sarasota, Florida. She is further represented by the Liz-Beth Gallery of Knoxville, Tennessee.

Visions of Italy will run from October 3 through October 30 with a First Friday opening on October 7, from 5:30 - 8:30 pm. Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Eau Gallie Arts District in Melbourne, FL.

RoAnn Elias – The Circle Game St. Augustine Artist Featured at Flagler Beach Gallery


FLAGLER BEACH, FL – On Saturday, August 6, St. Augustine mixed-media artist RoAnn Elias will be featured at Ocean Art Gallery in Flagler Beach from 6 to 9 pm during the Opening Reception of her month-long show “The Circle Game.”

Inspired by the captivating essence of circles and time, Elias emphasizes the shared emotions of joy and spiritualism, speaking to the ideas of birth and rebirth through her newest collection. As quoted by singing legend Joni Mitchell, “We are captive on the carousel of time (a circle). We can’t return, we can only look behind from where we came, and go round and round in the circle game.

Gallery owner Frank Gromling said, “RoAnn is one of our newest and freshest artists. Known for her creative use of color, she loves to experiment with how paints react to a variety of textures and techniques.” He added that Elias’ artwork has a unique style that adds greatly to the gallery’s expansion into varied artistic dynamics.

Elias is well-known in the St. Augustine art community and her artwork hangs in many private and corporate collections throughout Florida. She has been an active art instructor in St. Augustine and is one of Ocean Art Gallery’s artists who conduct its sought-after Friday night Paint Parties.

“The Circle Game” art show runs from August 6 through August 31. Her opening reception on August 6 will be showcased attractively on both the corrugated metal-clad and white flat walls of the main gallery area. During the reception, RoAnn will meet with guests and explain her artistic technique. Light refreshments will be served and live music will be played. As normal for the gallery’s art opening receptions, this is a free event to which everyone is invited.
