Christmas in July - Sip and Stroll in Cocoa Village


The Stripes Run Through Us art by Babz Lupoli at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery


 
Exhibit dates: July 5 - 29, 2017
____________________________
Opening on July 5 and running through July 29 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery will be the exhibit, The Stripes Run Through Us, art by Babz Lupoli. Your only opportunity to meet the artist will be at an opening reception on First Friday, July 7, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. We are very sorry, but the Second Saturday talk has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Lupoli is an experimental mixed media artist who retired from her career in elementary education and relocated to the Daytona Beach area in 2002 after living in 10 states. She specializes in collage with rich texture and a vivid color palette. She has since concentrated on creating big, bold energetic pieces that draw the viewer inside and make them feel and seek something new or hidden within themselves. She paints intuitively and finds recycling various papers and tidbits of life onto her pieces is especially gratifying.

Lupoli says of her artistic journey, “The Arts enrich our lives, lift our psyches, and heal our bodies and souls. All art and beauty is immensely powerful and inspiring. When I create abstract art, it feels as if I am connected with the whole of humanity and we are all working as one. I am continually amazed at the shapes and concepts and imagery that show up in my work as if by magic. Creating art is a spiritual journey for me…I invite the viewer to join me…”
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, Florida. All events are open and free to the public.

Fabrications, fabric art by Gabriele DiTota at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery

 
 
Exhibit dates: May 30 - July 1, 2017
____________________________
Fabrications, fabric art by Gabriele DiTota, continues at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. The gallery space is full of color and attitude emanating from the art quilts and dolls that spring from Gabriele's creativity. She was the winner of 2016's 100% Pure Florida. Her art quilts have been widely exhibited throughout the United States as well as overseas in England, Ireland and Australia. Both her Art Quilts and her Art Dolls have been published in books and in magazines.
Originally from Northern Germany, Gabriele's grew up with a mother who was a seamstress. She would play around the sewing machine trying to stay out of the way of the treadle. The family immigrated to America and a new way of life. Textiles and sewing didn’t return to Gabriele’s life in a meaningful way until she retired from the early education field. Matching seams and meticulous piecing were her first efforts in textile art fabrication, but they quickly gave way to a more organic, raw edge approach to quilting. Surface design techniques including monoprinting, mark making, dyeing, discharging and screen-printing help Gabriele create the unique fabrics she uses in her art works.
Fabrications will run through July 1. Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is in the Eau Gallie Arts District in Melbourne, FL. All events are open and free to the public.

New Members at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery: Joe Thompson and Frits Van Eeden

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is pleased to announce the recent addition of two new members, Joe Thompson and Frits Van Eeden.  

Joe is a self-taught artist from Vinings, GA, and a prior member of Fifth Avenue. He is considered to be a world class sculptor by many collectors, writers and critics. 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!”

Frits has a long and rich background. He is an internationally recognized artist who was the first member of the “Pulchri Studio” admitted to more than one discipline. After participating in shows at the “Pulchri Studio” Frits participated in group and one-man shows throughout Europe and Asia. A trip to the United States gave Frits the opportunity to see the work of students at Harvard. After this experience he began his semi-annual visits to Florida. Under a grant from The State of Florida, Frits was give the position of Artist-in-Residence at the museum and served on-and-off as a major instructor for 30 years. Frits is currently recognized by many of the World Art Critics and shows often in Europe, The Caribbean, and the United States. At last count he has participated in nearly one hundred single and group shows.

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is enriched by the addition of these two outstanding artists to their membership and looks forward to years of partnership with them both.
