On Saturday evening, August 9th, from 6 to 9 pm, as the summer heat in Florida makes life a bit steamy and locals become entranced by water, sand and sun, Art Gallery of Viera in the Avenue will host “Tropical Daze”. This will be the fifth time the gallery has celebrated the palms, sunsets, ocean and birds. It is hot and it is Florida, and it is all expressed in the hot-hot-hot tropical art by local artists.

The Kingdom Awakens by Jerry Hanzl
Art Gallery of Viera is a members gallery and it is managed by five of the artists, J. Susan Cole Stone, Helen Wheatley, Jeanette Drake, Rebecca Gomme and Jerry Hanzl. During this show, they will be honored as the gallery's featured artists for the month of August. At the opening reception, Ree Nathan, one of the gallery's teachers, will demonstrate the art of card making and guests can sign up to win a
stained glass butterfly by AGoV glass artist, Eileen Farrell. This art show is open to member and guest artists. The gallery will hold a month long 'Peoples Choice Award' (visitors will vote on their favorite piece of art) with the winning artist receiving a wall in the front room of the gallery for display in January 2015.

This show will be sizzling, so the gallery will have wine and snacks to help you cool down and wild tropical colors to get you hot again.

Come join in the Tropical Daze.
