The tour is limited to 12 tour stops and each stop has a two-minute narrative and includes historic photographs. Anyone may download the app and listen to the tour by foot, bicycle, or even car.

The EGAD office will be open from the hours of 10 am to 1 pm to offer light refreshments, hand out printed maps and answer any questions.

The office is located at 540 Montreal Avenue which is located at the back of the Highland Avenue parking lot. There will be a large yellow umbrella outside to help people find it. Come hear all about the origins of Eau Gallie, the founding families, the history of some of the buildings, and what started here (University of Florida) before moving elsewhere. Stop in to one of Eau Gallie’s restaurants afterwards for lunch and make a great day of it! It’s free to download the app and take the tour.

We ask that patrons understand that some houses still have people living in them so please do not enter private property, knock on the door or peer in windows of any private home. Please remain in the public area.

Gary Marchesano presents Space and Time Revisited at the Harris Corporation Art Gallery at the King Center for the Performing Arts


September 25 – October 29
………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Melbourne, FL – Space and Time Revisited, the vibrant collection of contemporary work created by acclaimed artist, Gary Marchesano, is the featured exhibit in the Maxwell C. King Center's Harris Corporation Art Gallery from September 24 through October 28. Ticketed guests attending King Center main stage performances can view the exhibit. During many of our main stage events, Mr. Marchesano will be present to interact and engage in conversation about his work.

Gary Marchesano is best described as an artist since birth and the previous owner of Hang-Ups Art Gallery in Titusville. Some of Gary’s credits include being a primary exhibiting artist at Art Miami in 2014. His cover design for a special art edition of Space Coast Living Magazine was entered in a national competition. Much of Gary’s work has been featured in numerous regional publications such as Florida Today and is found in private collections around the United States.


Space and Time Revisited is a compilation of contemporary two and three-dimensional wall mounted images of various sizes. The featured work is created using re-purposed materials such as plastic, Ethernet cords, metal, wire and acrylic paint to make conceptual statements about scientific fact, theory and spirituality. The exhibit encourages viewers to 'step in close' to the works for maximum effect.


Many of the pieces are reasonably priced and available for purchase.


Gary is excited about his return to the King Center for what may be his final visual art show and is looking forward to meeting many of the guests when they attend King Center main stage shows during his exhibition.


For additional information regarding Space and Time Revisited or, to inquire about exhibition opportunities in the Harris Gallery you may contact Karen Wilson, kwilson@kingcenter.com or (321) 433-5717.
