Exhibit dates: January 3 - 29, 2017
Come to Fifth Avenue Art Gallery on Saturday, January 14, at 2 PM to hear the artist’s talk by member artist Jini James.
James will speak about Gustav Klimt and his love of gold and gold leafing. "Klimt is one of my very favorites from the period. His work is very complex and contains gold leaf, a craft that he learned from his father" said James. "I learned how to apply leaf from a sign painter who provided leafing services to our boatyard customers. He even did the gold leaf restoration on the tall ship AMERICAN EAGLE". This process is available to artists and crafters alike with imitation products and Jini will show you how she applied it to her painting, now a work in the exhibit Rediscovering Klimt. Come early, seating is limited; admission is free.
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Melbourne Eau Gallie Arts District.
