      Journey in Landscapes

      Fifth Avenue Art Gallery begins the new year with an exhibit of the work of Brett Pigon, a Grant, Florida, oil painter, as the featured solo artist during the month of January. Journey in Landscapes is a body of work based on Brett’s interior journeys in his artistic life and on his physical travels. This exhibit will open on December 30 with a First Friday Opening Reception on January 3, 2020, from 5:30-8:30 pm. You are invited to come and meet the artist and travel through his work visually. Journey in Landscapes will run through February 1.

      Brett describes his work in his own words. “My land and water scapes aim to capture the beauty of nature faithfully as I appreciate it as it is or can be. I am attracted to lighting effects and patterns, textures, and colors that will challenge me as a painter. Sometimes I simply thirst to get that feeling, that striking color. I work at finding the design and technique to achieve a unity of effect and truth of a great painting.”

      He works mainly in oils, but also includes pastel and charcoal in his media. He loves both portraiture and landscapes and works at capturing the unique beauty of nature, especially Florida. His recent training includes mentoring and workshops by master portrait artist Jon K Houghton, figure drawing workshops with Michael Burban of the New York Art Students’ League, and plein air workshops with Larry Moore.

      Brett is a member of the Strawbridge Art League, and member and past president of the Art Students’ Guild of Brevard, both in Melbourne, FL, and is also a member of the American Portrait Society.

      Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is located in EGAD (Eau Gallie Arts District) in Melbourne, FL. All events are free and open to the public. For further information, please call 321-259-8261.
