Second Glance by Heather Kelley at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in October

Exhibit dates: September 29 - October 30, 2015

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery invites you to the opening reception for member artist Heather Kelley on October 2nd, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. "Second Glance, artwork by Heather Kelley" will run from September 29 through October 30.

According to Heather her modern realism style “creates a realism that the camera cannot see. That is, it is not photographic, but interprets the image with a medium more capable of breaking the 2-dimensional plane by emphasis, lighting, and paint application. It is about forms, space, colors, and textures, without an agenda to tell a story about the image. In my figurative pieces, each muscular structure is modeled by layer upon layer of paint to achieve dimensional believability but not necessarily perfection. My abstract works also forego storytelling, in favor of peaceful imagery. I am hopeful my viewers will enjoy the simplicity and honesty inherent in my minimalist works.”

Heather grew up in Orlando and, with private art instruction from local artists, has been painting since age 10. Her art degree is from The University of Florida, with graduate work at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia.  She resides in Melbourne Beach, Florida.
