Creativity in Isolation, part 5

Creativity in Isolation, part 5

We’re opening the gallery on Monday, June 1, and excited about sharing the amazing art our members create. They have been exercising their creativity at their homes and in their studios. We want to share some of that work with you..

Gallery member Jini James:

Would you just look at this couple enjoying a cone together at last year’s Vero Beach Art show!  The closeness is mesmerizing. I can picture the ice cream dripping everywhere.  That’s what art making does for me.  It transports me to a place of comfort and serenity.
If you have seen my recent work at the Gallery it now is about figures and what they may tell us about the world in which we live.  While in isolation from the pandemic I count on my memories and reference photos to invite them into my studio.  Welcome, old friends.

Creativity in Isolation part 4

Gallery member Renee Decator has been really inspired with some new subject matter and the self distancing led her down to her studio much more than her normal schedule allows. “All the constant news updates, talk of pandemic and hunt for toilet paper stressed me out, so I retreated to one of my “happy places” to focus on the creative process.” “I’m an optimist by nature and escaping to my studio helped keep me reacting positively.”

Creativity in Isolation

Creativity in Isolation

You probably won’t be surprised to hear that lots and lots of creative types flourish under self-induced isolation. While the gallery has been closed for the past 7 weeks following our state’s guidelines for the Covid 19 virus outbreak, our artists have been exercising their creativity at their homes and studios. We want to share some of that work with you.

Gallery member Tricia Eisen created this painting, “from a photo shoot I did from my car during quarantine.   It’s our beautiful Viera wetlands”.  Acrylic on board.

Gallery member Jim Kalupa:

“Most of my photographic work is digitally enhanced to some degree depending on how I feel about the image.  I took considerable artistic liberty in applying water color effects to this piece.”.

Summer Art Scene

Hey Art Lovers! Summer is a great time here in Brevard to get into Fifth Avenue Art Gallery to experience some great art. This is Florida… we don’t stop making and showing great art because it’s hot out. Summer is a really good time to take an afternoon and swing into the gallery to see what is new and exciting.

Monday, July 1st… a brand new show will be in the front room gallery: Where Am I,  features new work by members of The Wednesday Group (Begun informally by Donne Bitner and Loretta Schnitzius in the early 80s, The Wednesday Group grew over time to become an informal organization of roughly 20 women artists. In the beginning they called themselves The Beach Girls. The purpose was to only discuss art. They met for a while in restaurants but then moved to Donne’s studio. From there the group grew and became a rich resource of women artists. The group has always remained fluid, members coming and going as life demanded, while still retaining its history of group shows, supporting each other’s work and discussing art.)

In August we have a solo exhibition of wonderful sculptures by local artist; Larry Buist.

Mr Buist has been working in 3 dimensional art for over 20 years. His work has won many awards and is in many collections, including the Hilton Charter Hotel in Seattle, WA. Buist says of his work, “I sculpt but do not draw or paint except to work out designs for sculptures. In preparation for a new piece I often create clay or wire models. When working without a model I follow a vision and assemble pieces until a rough concept is manifest. With each new piece, I push the limits of my abilities and technical experience, as well as the medium I work in…”
