Exhibit Dates: February 27 - March 31, 2018
Opening on February 27, Sleep Walkers will give you a glimpse into the night visions of the artists of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. Member artists will create artwork inspired by all things night. Subjects may be indoor/outdoor, the light of the moon, candlelight, or perhaps, drawing from the sleep realm, dream imagery. This should prove to be a different exhibit with a new perspective on eyes wide open.
This sketch is the beginning of Widow's Walk by Jini James. James explains how this began. "Widow's Walk is highly personal. I took my first vacation solo in 2016 and returned to one of our favorite spots: The King and Prince Resort in St Simons, GA. I felt comfortable. Night time is a different story. There are two beds in every room, now one stays empty so I burned one of those battery operated candles next to it so light filled the room. It wasn't enough so a lamp went on, I got out of bed, got dressed and went for a beach walk. The sound of water is soothing. This is how a painting starts in my journey of story telling."
There will be a First Friday Opening Reception on Friday, March 2, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. Plan to come and meet our members and enjoy some light refreshments.
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Eau Gallie Arts district of Melbourne, Florida. All events are free and open to the public.
