Exhibit dates: July 5 - 29, 2017
Join with the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery on First Friday, July 7, to celebrate the opening of The Stripes Run Through Us, art by Babz Lupoli. Lupoli is an experimental mixed media artist who relocated to the Daytona Beach area in 2002 after retiring. She specializes in collage with rich texture and a vivid color palette. She concentrates 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…”
Due to unforeseen circumstances the artist will be unable to be with us. However, there will be a representative of hers to greet you and answer any questions you might have. We are very sorry, but the Second Saturday talk has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The Stripes Run Through Us will run from July 5 through July 29 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, Florida. All events are open and free to the public.
