VISIONS OF ITALY
Artwork by Phyllis Shipley
The opening reception for Visions of Italy will be held on Friday, October 14th from 5:30-8:30pm. Please join us for! Light refreshments will be served.
Phyllis has been producing fine art for the past thirty years and has been a gallery owner, an art show participant and award winner, and a continuing student in the details of water color and acrylics. A native of Johnson City, Tennessee, she uses her intuition to create loose and flowing colors with a musical fluidity of expression. Phyllis began painting in the early 1980’s. After years of playing and teaching music with the organ and piano, raising children, and a successful career as a purchasing executive with a major chemical corporation, the time was right to pursue her dream and passion. Painting for her is like a musical score, expressing emotion and beauty with the brush as the melody rings in our ears.
She is presently an exhibiting member at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and also currently an exhibiting artist at the newly opened Art Avenue Gallery located in Sarasota, Florida. She is further represented by the Liz-Beth Gallery of Knoxville, Tennessee.
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.
