Gallery One, located in the front of the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery, features changing exhibitions with opening receptions held the first Friday of the month from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. The shows are open to the public, admission is free, and refreshments are served. Due to Covid-19 we have suspended our opening receptions until August 2020. We hope you will join us then!
Petaling Hope, an member and invitational exhibition
Petaling Hope, an invitational and member exhibit, will spring into existence on June 1 with Fifth Avenue Art Gallery’s return to business. This exhibit features flowers and their healing power, and will run through June 27.
Soft and delicate blooms have always held a strong power to heal and inspire. This exhibit aims to feature that power through the lens of many different artists. It is to be a visually restorative experience which we all need at this time. Flowers traditionally celebrate the coming of Spring, new growth, and beauty. From the time of the Egyptians on throughout history, artists have celebrated the flower in paintings, landscapers have designed yards, both formal and informal, to feature flowers, sanctuaries of myriad faiths hold special places for flowers, and florists have created “artful” arrangements both for celebration, healing and mourning. Please plan to visit the gallery and inhale through your eyes the healing power of blossoms.
This exhibit will run through June 27. The gallery will be open for its regular hours from June 1 on. For now all First Friday Opening Receptions have been put on hold. We apologize but trust you understand the necessity.
Our First Friday Artwalks are postponed for now… but stay tuned, they will return soon.
The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located at 1470 Highland Avenue, Melbourne, Florida in the Eau Gallie Arts District (EGAD) across from the Foosaner Art Museum.
