Exhibit dates: February 28 - April 1, 2017
Musings in Color, opening on February 28 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery, will feature the work of artist Witha Lacuesta. There will be a First Friday Opening on March 3, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm where you can meet the artist and hear about her work. She has studied both in Germany and the US. Witha is a member of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and has been painting for many years. She says of her work "...my focus is to try to capture the beauty of the world around us and interpret it according to my feelings and sense of being. I would like my viewers to find a pleasant sanctuary in my paintings where they can quietly reflect and discover a sense of peace."
This exhibit will consist of two series. The first, Cypress Tree Series, was inspired by a recent excursion to the Blue Cypress Conservation area which serves as headwaters for St. Johns River. The beauty of these century old trees was deeply moving. Having withstood various weather extremes, they stand for persistence, resilience, and grace. They also inspire us to strive for the same attributes when facing adversity or solitude.
In contrast, my second series, entitled Dancers, conveys a different mood through the serendipitous use of color and shapes as expressed in dynamic abstract watercolors.
The exhibit will run from February 28 through April 1. All events are free and open to the public. Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Eau Gallie Art District in Melbourne, FL.
