“Scribble Central in EGAD,” sponsored by Derek Gores and Unity of Melbourne,  will present a Saturday line-up of colorful and creative activities, including:

Eau Gallie Arts District’s First Friday events just keep on getting more outrageously creative and amazing! Here’s a sampling of  what’s happening Friday, February 6 from 5:30-8:30 pm.    

Dr. Sketchy's Melbourne welcomes Ms. Mikhaila Pearsovna's dance interpretations to the Derek Gores Gallery. Live drawing event from 8- 10 p.m. Bring your own art supplies and prepare to get sketchy.

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery invites you to their Fortieth Anniversary Celebration on Friday, February 6.  The festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. with a champagne toast to the gallery at 7 p.m.  

Past and present artists will be honored with a video presentation of paintings and photos taken during the gallery's history which began with its 1975 opening.

The 16th Annual ArtWorks Fine Arts Festival will be held Saturday and Sunday, November 17 and 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Artworks Festival is a “plein-air” show and takes places on Highland Avenue in the historic Eau Gallie Arts District in Melbourne. "Plein air” is a term derived from the French phrase “en plein air”, which literally means “in the open air.” The unique requirement that each artist create works as they exhibit or demonstrate their techniques makes this an extraordinary show for both artists and patrons.
