Ellen Pavlakos
Work in Process

             The Challenger by Ellen Pavlakos

September 30 – October 31

Ellen Pavlakos works in clay, plaster, stone, and other contemporary materials, casting most of her work in bronze.

The figure is her vehicle of expression. There is a continuing thread of concern with human emotions through most of her work. Through a link to the classical Greek, a positive feeling of the human experience and glorification of life communicates directly to the viewer.

The front gallery of the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery will become Ellen’s studio during the month of October. It will be fascinating to see the process from the beginning to the finished work in plaster or bronze. Pavlakos, one of our long standing members in the gallery, is internationally acclaimed and collected. The gallery has many bronze pieces of her work and Pavlakos will be working in the gallery studio on Wednesdays from 1pm to 4pm during October.

Pavlakos’ sculptures are exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the state of Florida and she has competed and exhibited in many statewide and national competitions as well as in Paris, France, Athens and Thessalonica, Greece, and Nicosia, Cyprus.

HOME: a movie preview   HERE

We are planning a village of handcrafted structures for our August 2014 Front Gallery Exhibition called HOME.

Houses made with lots of love and imagination; of clay or wire or paper maché, of wood or cardboard with paint, or fabric and lace; 3-D Abodes… dwellings… home.  all sizes and colors, fancy and not so fancy… people house and animal houses.

We  have invited several groups of children to paint the backdrops to our village, which should add to the whimsical factor of this exhibition. As a contribution to our community we will be collecting food and monetary donations for the South Brevard Sharing Center throughout the exhibition period. Along with a food pantry open to Brevard County residents in need, they provide assistance with prescriptions, utilities and rent vouchers; to help keep families in  their homes. For more info about the South Brevard Sharing Center see their website.

This in an invitational show  with many artist throughout our community participating. We hope you will enjoy our efforts and remember to Buy Local Art!
