Friday, August 7 from 5:30-8:30
Here’s a pre-opening interview with Larry Vienneau.
The work of artist Larry Vienneau revolves around the world of birds, mostly of the intelligent and misunderstood raven and crow.
Larry’s prints and paintings are about history. He loves to learn about the past, and about the stories and belief systems of our many ancestors. Each image has a Narrative, which is as important as the image itself. He wants people to slow down and take the time to read.
Vienneau says of his process “I fell in love with printmaking as soon as I made my first print! It felt like I was opening a wrapped present and, thirty-five years later, I still get excited. It is one of the things that keep me addicted to it. I enjoy painting and drawing but the process of printmaking intrigues me. It is indirect. It is both craft and art.”
Larry holds a BFA in painting from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and a MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Southern Illinois University. He currently resides and works in Florida.
This exhibit promises to be exciting and powerful and will run through August 29. Plan to come spend some time with the birds. Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in the Eau Gallie Arts District. All events are free and open to the public. For more information, please call 321-259-8261.
