Highlights and shadows art

Artists and photographers have always been acutely aware of the highlights and shadows in a scene when creating art.

These patterns of light continue to intrigue us and are the subject of January's show, entitled "Shadows" at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery.

This is a member's show that will explore the nuances of shadows, real or imaginary, in various mediums.

The show will run until Sunday, Jan. 27.

The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery, the premier member gallery in Brevard County, was established in 1975. It is artist owned and operated. The gallery is located in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, across the street from the Foosaner Art Museum.

Local actress becomes writer, producer and director

A local actress becomes a writer, producer and director with the premier of her original play, "Last Call," at the Henegar Center for the Arts in Downtown Melbourne.

Jessica Taylor, member of the improv troupe Not Quite Right and long-time Brevard County thespian, wrote the play with many of her friends and fellow actors in mind.

"Last Call" is set in a hotel bar, with a bartender (Hank) having to deal with his eccentric customers and their problems, while trying to shake his own past.

Using her improv background, Ms. Taylor wanted to make the show somewhat interactive, replacing the normal upstairs seating with cocktail tables, creating the feeling that the audience members are also bar patrons. The audience will actually be able to order drinks from Hank's bar.

"Although the storyline revolves around Hank, the play has an ensemble cast made up of some of Brevard's most talented actors.

The cast includes Not Quite Right members Joe Boasci, Jon Emmerich, Adam Lucker and Michelle McElvaine, as well as Donna Furfaro, Taylor Kopman, Rob Landers, Michelle Lee, Diana Taylor, Doug Taylor, Tori Smith and Ms. Taylor herself.

Tickets cost $15 and are on sale now through the Henegar Center box office at or online at www.henegar.org.

The show runs Feb. 8-10 and 15-17 at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.

The Henegar Center is at 625 E, New Haven Ave., No. 119, Melbourne.

For more information, call (321) 723-8698.
