Exhibit Dates: August 29 - September 30, 2017
Don't let Irma deprive you of your chance to enjoy the twelfth annual 100% Pure Florida exhibit at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. Take some time off and come experience the variety of exceptional work in this exhibit. 57 artists entered the juried competition this year with 182 pieces of art. 57 pieces were chosen, representing 42 artists. Of these 42, 30 are from Brevard County while the remaining 12 are from outside of the county. There are 12 types of media represented by this diverse group. “Pure Florida” refers to the artists’ residence. Subject matter is unlimited.
Our guest judge, Kellie Moore commented on 100% Pure, "I was delighted by a number of works that drew me in with a mastery of their medium, their creative prowess, and strong elements of design, and enjoyed the resonating message and uplifting feeling many of those same works provided. Whether they be abstract or representational, utilizing comparatively new mediums or rooted in traditional crafts, it was wonderful to see artists with such great skill and imagination pushing their boundaries to deliver something beautiful and something unexpected. Thank you very much and congratulations to all of the artists exhibiting in this fabulous show!"
