Child's Play: A Journey Into Imagination with Lisa Mistiuk at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery

Exhibit dates: January 31 - February 26, 2017 

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery welcomes Lisa Mistiuk for the month of February. “Child’s Play, A Journey Into Imagination”, opening on January 31st, will reflect her most recent work. Lisa, a Michigan artist, has studied art from Germany to San Francisco, turning her skills into strong oil paintings with an emphasis on the elements that make up our everyday lives. She will be at the First Friday Opening Reception on Friday, February 3, 2017 to chat with you and will offer a gallery talk on Saturday, February 4th at 2 pm. Both events are free and open to the public. 

“...one of the things I love about capturing pieces of life in paint - it really gives me a chance to reflect and absorb things and share them. With so much done today by the push of a button it’s nice to slow down and take time over something. In painting there isn’t a button to push - you must invest time. First the time in learning all the technical ins and outs - which takes years, then time searching for that special subject matter and finally the time that goes into each piece of art” says Mistiuk.

Brian Sherwin, an art critic says this of her work, "Lisa Mistiuk brings a lot of painterly skills to the table... she meshes styles and subjects in a way that is uniquely her own. She is clearly an informed student of painting. Her focus on everyday life -- specifically her works involving children -- allows her to capture the energy of the 'here and now'. In fact, one could suggest that these paintings serve as a form of social documentation... reminding viewers of their own cherished experiences."

The exhibit will run from January 31st through February 26th.

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is in the Eau Gallie Art’s District in Melbourne, FL.
