Exhibit dates: March 29 - May 1, 2016
‘Just Wingin’ It . . . art by Barbara Desrosiers opens on March 29 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne. There will be an opening reception during First Friday on April 1, from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm.
According to Barbara, ‘Just Wingin’ It’ is the result of her inner conversation with birds. She’s spent hours watching and photographing them while marveling at their talent for floating without forcing their control upon the wind. This work started as an observation of this talent and became a discipline of allowing intuition more honor and attention. She is very interested in the inner life and how spirituality comes to us in forms of nature and unseen influences. Her work is mixed media, combining digital photography with encaustic and other medias.
Barbara works in Melbourne, Florida, and is an active member of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. She earned her BFA at the University of Rhode Island and immediately began traveling the world, camera in hand, with her now retired Air Force husband, enabling her to collect thousands of images. She began experimenting with encaustic in 2012 after 20 plus years of working in digital montage and acrylic painting.
‘Just Wingin’ It . . . art by Barbara Desrosiers will run from March 29 through May 1.
