The Ceramic Art of Katherine Mathisen
2015 100% Pure Florida Best of Show
Katherine Mathisen Solo Exhibition

May 31-June26

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is proud to announce “CONNECTIONS, the ceramic art of Katherine Mathisen.” Katherine was the 2015 100% Pure Florida exhibit winner. Her work, done by hand, uses earthenware clay and a combination of surface glazes, engobes, colored slips, stains, terra sigillata and Egyptian paste. Creating figurative sculpture posed in simple gestures to convey human emotion and relations, Katherine’s current work blends clay and other media in an artfully articulate way. She has recently been awarded the 2016 Edith Bush Charitable Foundation Art of Philanthropy Award and was the poster artist for the 2016 Artisphere in Greenville, So. Carolina.

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.
