Hang-ups Art Gallery & Workshop

Newly opened, Hang-Ups Art Gallery & Workshop, located at 4509 S. Hopkins Ave., in Titusville, is an eclectic, urban style art gallery unique to the Space Coast. Originally conceived to be an art production studio only, the concept was expanded by owner-artist Gary Marchesano to include a fine art gallery venue.

The gallery markets regionally, offering a wide selection of museum quality fine art in a variety of media from a stable of acclaimed artists and provide custom fine art production services specifically tailored to fit the design needs of clients for their personal, office and corporate environments.

Plan to join in Saturday, June 22 from 7-9 p.m. for a decadent night of food, wine and art with friends of the gallery at the free "First Annual Summer Breeze Artist's Reception" to welcome five new artists to the family.

More information is available at (321) 607-6719 or online at www.hangupsartgallery.com.

The artists will be Rita Burton, expressionist; Connie Allen, pastels; E. Lee Wilson Jr., abstract - impressionist; Todd Batt, wire sculpture; and Tim Kennedy, etched glass.

The art gallery and workshop currently has a limited amount of gallery space available for select professionally minded artists wanting regional exposure and to exhibit their work in an appealing, contemporary environment. Artist acceptance is upon review of work by owner, and commitment by written agreement is required. Space sizes are varied and are priced accordingly.
