Our satisfied customers remind us yearly that the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is hands down the best place for holiday shopping.
“AS I SEE IT”
We are pleased to showcase one of our own for the October’s front room exhibition. A solo exhibit featuring the art work of William R. McCoy will be in the front gallery this month. Bill is a traditional oil painter with impressionist influences, whose subject matter reflects Florida’s Environment featuring wildlife, landscapes, marine sunrises, clouds and sea. Bill is well versed in the techniques of his medium and paints as he sees it.
An avid plein air painter, Bill believes the outdoor painting experience can be transferred to the studio, and produces better results than when painting from photos.
The opening reception for “AS I SEE IT” will be held on Friday, October 4th from 5:30-8:30. Light refreshments will be served, open to the public.
