“I really can’t think of a gallery in Orlando that equals Fifth Avenue for its consistency of quality of all original art.”
Terry Hummel, entertainment writer for the Orlando Sentinel visits Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. His review:
I’ve been spending my summer at our beach house in Cocoa Beach, so I’ve been exploring and enjoying the art happenings in Brevard County. The art hub along this part of the coast seems to be the historic section of Melbourne known as the Eau Gallie Arts District. There are at least seven galleries along one short block of Highland Avenue (Highland straddles Eau Gallie Boulevard, just west of the causeway) and a few more on the next block, including the Brevard Museum of Art. My two favorite galleries are the long-established Fifth Avenue Art Gallery (1470 Highland Ave, 321-259-8261), which is directly across from the BMA, and the almost brand-new EGAD Art Lab (1405 Highland Ave., 321-258-2119). Fifth Avenue, established in 1975, is a co-op gallery that has refined its membership and the gallery to the point that it rivals almost any private commercial gallery in the state. I really can’t think of a gallery in Orlando that equals Fifth Avenue for its consistency of quality of all original art.
