'Solid Flow' - a solo exhibition by Michael Robinson

Fifth Avenue Art Gallery presents the glass creations of Michael Robinson, last year's 2012 100% Pure Florida Juried Show now through June 30.

In Mr. Robinson's hands, glass is not worked or manipulated, but transformed into designs that suspend time. Captured in this exquisitely unforgiving medium is a portal into the mind's eye of this talented artist. Entry may take us to a distant windswept shore - or result in the quiet contemplation of a single perfect bloom - or plunge us into the depths of that remote region known as inner space.

Michael Robinson will also be the Fifth Avenue guest artist for Second Saturday, June 15 at 2 p.m. at the gallery. He will share his inspiration and discusses the techniques that make his work so extraordinary.

The gallery is located at 1470 Highland Ave., in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, across the street from the Foosaner Art Museum.

The gallery telephone number is (321) 259-8261.
