Art by Nance Gatti Mann
September 30 – October 26
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is pleased to showcase Experience: INDIA, art by Nance Gatti Mann during the month of October. Ms. Gatti Mann has created a collection of oil paintings inspired by her love for India. The show will open on September 30 with a First Friday Opening Reception on October 4, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm. Plan to come and meet Nance and have your own India experience.
Nance discovered her love for art during her childhood in Brooklyn, NY. While her life took her into the sciences, she was deeply inspired to try painting after seeing El Greco’s work while in Spain. It was much later in life that a friend’s words finally lit the fire that had been smoldering. She said “Why wait?”
Her approach is very methodical, she tackles her palette with the precision of a scientist. Nance doesn’t want to ever limit herself in her explorations, otherwise, she feels, she couldn’t express herself. She is interested in the interconnectedness of everything. For her, nothing is independent or stands alone.
Have you been to First Friday yet? The first Friday of every month is a great time to head down to Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and EGAD (Eau Gallie Arts District). 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!
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.
