NAPLES, FL. – The Fifth Avenue South Business Improvement District (BID) today announced that Creason’s Fine Art Galleries has opened a location along Naples’ Historic Main Street. Creason’s Fine Art Gallery features original paintings and reproductions by owner Greg Creason, who also has gallery locations in New Orleans and Carmel, Calif.

Located at 331 Fifth Ave. S., Creason’s Fine Art Gallery offers a diverse range of mixed media. The works created by Creason include glass, metals and other embellishments over top of paintings, giving each piece a three-dimensional appearance. A classically trained artist originally from Flint, Mich., Creason is inspired by the colors, eclectic people, beautiful scenery and unique history of the communities in which he calls home.

“We are very excited to open our first Florida gallery on Fifth Avenue South,” said Creason. “We were searching for a new opportunity when we found Naples last year. We look forward to welcoming guests into our gallery and becoming part of the community.”

Creason’s Fine Art Gallery is a working gallery and visitors can expect to see him crafting his artwork in the new location. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“The original paintings and reproductions offered by Creason’s Fine Art Gallery are a nice complement to the numerous other art galleries located along Fifth Avenue South, ensuring there is something for everyone,” said Bruce Barone, Jr., executive director for the Fifth Avenue South BID. “We are delighted to welcome them to the Avenue.”

Featuring more than 220 businesses, including high-end shops, world-class dining, unique boutiques and galleries, and exciting entertainment options, Fifth Avenue South is the vibrant heart of Naples.
