Fifth Avenue Art Gallery 37th Anniversary in April

The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery will be celebrating it's 37th Anniversary on Friday April 6th at 5:30. We are inviting all previous members to join us for a group photo and a piece of cake.
 
Gallery History
The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery was established in 1975 by a group of South Brevard artists, including present member, Nancy Crawford. Originally located on Fifth Avenue in Indialantic, the gallery moved to the Eau Gallie area in 1985. It was the members’ desire to provide a professional showcase for their artwork. Andrew Pavlakos, husband of artist member Ellen Pavlakos, designed and built the current building in 1989, which is located on the property that had been the old Wickham homestead.
Over 100 of the area’s finest artists have been members of the gallery, throughout the years.  Their artwork graces homes and businesses both here locally and around the world.
The gallery operates as a cooperative in which artists and craftsmen combine individual and collective talents. We offer a distinctive collection of jewelry, original paintings in all mediums, drawings and prints, pottery, sculpture, art glass and more. Members of the gallery welcome the opportunity to work with collectors, designers and architects in interpretation of design needs for commissioned projects, as well.
Front room exhibits are changed monthly and feature the artwork of guest artists, member artists and special event group exhibits. As part of EGAD we host our openings during the First Friday Art Walk; the first Friday of every month, from 5:30-8:30.
We host an art demo or artist talk on the Second Saturday of each month. It is free and open to the public. We invite guests to meet some of the area's very best artists and learn about the newest art techniques and trends. We also distribute a free monthly newsletter to all our patrons who provide their email address;  introducing  new members  and their artwork and upcoming exhibitions along with gallery news.  We showcase the gallery and our award-winning artists on our website at www.fifthavenueartgallery.com and you can find us on facebook as well.
