THE STRIPES RUN THROUGH US
ART BY BABZ LUPOLI
Summer will sizzle at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery with The Stripes Run Through Us, art by Babz Lupoli. This exhibit will open on July 5 and run through July 29. Plan to meet Babz at an opening reception on First Friday, July 7, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm. There will be light refreshments available.
Lupoli is an experimental mixed media artist who retired from her career in elementary education and relocated to the Daytona Beach area in 2002 after living in 10 states. She specializes in collage with rich texture and a vivid color palette. She has since concentrated on creating big, bold energetic pieces that draw the viewer inside and make them feel and seek something new or hidden within themselves. She paints intuitively and finds recycling various papers and tidbits of life onto her pieces is especially gratifying.
Lupoli says of her artistic journey, “The Arts enrich our lives, lift our psyches, and heal our bodies and souls. All art and beauty is immensely powerful and inspiring. When I create abstract art, it feels as if I am connected with the whole of humanity and we are all working as one. I am continually amazed at the shapes and concepts and imagery that show up in my work as if by magic. Creating art is a spiritual journey for me…I invite the viewer to join me…”
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.
