OUR FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY
February 3-28, 2015
The celebration begins on First Friday, February 6, 2015, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m!
A champagne toast at 7:00 PM will mark the beginning of the Fortieth Anniversary Celebration at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery, 1470 Highland Avenue. The celebration begins on First Friday, February 6, 2015, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Past and present members will be honored by a video presentation featuring paintings and photos from the gallery’s history starting in 1975 when the gallery first opened. An Honor List of the 118 past and present gallery members and a collage of photos from the past 40 years will highlight the display. Mayor Kathy Meehan from the City of Melbourne will be participating in the celebration. The public is invited.
The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery, the oldest in Brevard County, set a high standard from the beginning for artwork that would be shown in the gallery. That standard has been maintained to the present. The gallery has provided a museum-like setting for the finest local artists, some nationally and internationally recognized, to display their work. It is “the place to go” for original artwork and the finest crafts.

January 6-February 1, 2015
Join the artists of the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery as we display our visions of a Florida winter. Migratory birds visit by the thousands and local birds don their breeding plumage. Sea grapes splash beach dunes with vibrant color and northern visitors enjoy wearing shorts, swimming, and surfing. Ripening citrus, colorful blooms, and breathtaking sunsets are offered in abundance. A Florida winter is relaxing and the paintings will give you the opportunity to take that piece of Florida home with you.

We “open” all our exhibits on first Fridays. There is music and art in the park, and the Brevard Art Museum and other EGAD galleries are open too.
We hope to see you here!
Would you like to get an inside look at the techniques of award-winning artists? We invite you to join us on the second Saturday each month as we offer a presentation; artist demonstration or talk by guest artists. Free and open to the public! Limited seating so come early.
