Exhibit dates: July 5 - 29, 2017
Opening on July 5 and running through July 29 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery will be the exhibit, The Stripes Run Through Us, art by Babz Lupoli. Your only opportunity to meet the artist will be at an opening reception on First Friday, July 7, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. We are very sorry, but the Second Saturday talk has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
Lupoli is an experimental mixed media artist who retired from her career in elementary education and relocated to the Daytona Beach area in 2002 after living in 10 states. She specializes in collage with rich texture and a vivid color palette. She has since concentrated on creating big, bold energetic pieces that draw the viewer inside and make them feel and seek something new or hidden within themselves. She paints intuitively and finds recycling various papers and tidbits of life onto her pieces is especially gratifying.
Lupoli says of her artistic journey, “The Arts enrich our lives, lift our psyches, and heal our bodies and souls. All art and beauty is immensely powerful and inspiring. When I create abstract art, it feels as if I am connected with the whole of humanity and we are all working as one. I am continually amazed at the shapes and concepts and imagery that show up in my work as if by magic. Creating art is a spiritual journey for me…I invite the viewer to join me…”
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, Florida. All events are open and free to the public.
