About the Artist
"Painting is an abstract process, a process of discovery. Textures, value, the nature of light, and composition all unfold to create a final artwork that evokes emotional responses such as happiness, mystery, wonder, longing, and love. A painting tells a story and reveals a tiny glimpse into the soul of the artist. With a recent move to Florida, I have become captivated by the Florida landscape and the beautiful, ever-changing sky. Painting both en plein air and in the studio, my wish is to capture the atmosphere of the moment so that the viewer can “walk” into one of my paintings and experience, through my eyes, the wonder I felt that day."
October 5-7, 2023

ABOUT the ARTIST
"I specialize in creating colorful vibrant seascape and landscape paintings. My artwork is inspired by my love for exploring and connecting with nature, admiring the beauty and healing properties the earth has to offer, soaking up the sun, and catching a sunrise at my favorite place, the Beach! I love capturing the authenticity and vibrations that a given day brings and using some of my favorite photos as references for my paintings. My mediums are acrylic and oil painting."
Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023

ABOUT THE ARTIST
"My favorite style of art would be putting marker to paper and letting the mood or happenings of the day guide the marker. A lot of my art is derived from my subconscious and appears in some symbolism within the art. I'm a fan of coffee and a lot of the pieces are themed around that. Even though hands are considered to be everyone's nemesis, I enjoy playing around with them and contorting them into unnatural positions. Part of my artist name Phiengus comes from the drawing of hands and fingers. A majority of my pieces are usually very tiny ranging from 1" x 1" to an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper. I screen print shirt designs and have dabbled in some digital design and logo creation. I've done work for Gold Leaf Coffee and Daytona Climbing Company." — Ric Price

ABOUT the ARTIST
"I tend to create expressive pieces through rhythmic lines, color, and textures, where I delight in the charm of imperfection. My purpose is to capture the feelings of joy and lightness found in the simple pleasures of a moment or of an element, often of beachside life. I create art digitally because it answers my dreams of working with smooth flowing lines in all colors on endless sheets of paper."
Show & Sale: June 30-July 2

ARTIST STATEMENT: CHOPPED TANGLES (NO. 1-5)
""My tangles are a reflection of thought, feeling, and various stages of my mental wellness; construction and deconstruction, tying and untying, tangles and knots, clouds and storms. For a long time I’ve been caught in a storm that’s been tearing me apart. I’m exploring what has happened and what is happening in a tangible, visible way. It is hard to face; to dig out the infestation of mold in my brain. But as I’ve been clearing it out I’ve been discovering a deeper life. I’m mainly interested in art’s formal qualities, and have been able to use formal and abstract explorations as a way to deal with trauma and healing."
Show & Sale: June 2-4
Ten oil paintings by Alex Vontevenar will be on display inside our reception gallery June 2-4. The Port Orange artist will also paint live at OMAM during the Ormond Art Walk, 3-7pm Saturday, June 3rd. Admission to the Art Walk is always FREE! We'll have a cash bar for beer and wine, plus a special signature cocktail/mocktail!
ABOUT the ARTIST
Alex Vontevenar is an up-and-coming local artist. He is an ambitious and inspirational young man who, while battling epilepsy and related seizures, taught himself to paint. His inspiration comes from his love of the ocean, surfing, boats, and the landscape that surrounds him. After only three years of oil painting, his works are now on display in two local galleries, Art Spotlight in Ormond Beach and VJL gallery in Daytona Beach. Alex’s work has also been highlighted in local restaurants.
"Alex Vontevenar’s collection is inspired by the life around him! Motivated to capture more of a feeling, rather than photo representation of the scene, his style is impressionistic, bold with expressive brush strokes and lots of texture. His art is recognized for the thickly applied paint, vivid colors, and his direct painting approach. He can usually be found out on the beach setting up his French easel, painting from life, and sometimes in the studio, both with the same goal of capturing the feeling of being there and the light of the scene."

Admission to the Art Walk is always FREE, and we'll have a cash bar for beer/wine and fun signature drinks!
ABOUT the ARTIST
"I am a modern artist who specializes in creating abstract paintings. I was born and raised in the beautiful city of San Francisco, and I now call Daytona Beach my home. Art has always been an essential part of my life, but it wasn't until I recovered from addiction that I truly found my passion for it. During my darkest times, art was the only thing that gave me solace and a sense of purpose. It allowed me to express my feelings and emotions in ways that words couldn't. My addiction was a battle that took me to the edge, but through it, I discovered the transformative power of art. It became my therapy, my sanctuary, and my lifeline. I found that creating abstract paintings was particularly cathartic because it allowed me to be free and uninhibited. I could let go of any expectations or preconceived notions and simply let the colors and shapes guide me. Art has brought so much to my life. It has helped me heal and find meaning in the chaos. It has also given me a voice and a platform to share my story with others who may be going through similar struggles. My art is a reflection of my journey and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Now, as an established artist, I want to inspire others to use art as a means of self-expression and healing. I want my art to evoke emotions, spark conversations, and challenge perceptions. Through my work, I hope to make a positive impact in the world and inspire others to find their own creative outlet."

ABOUT the ARTIST
Frank Ferrante graduated Rutgers University and Newark School of Fine & Industrial Arts in New Jersey. It was not until later in his career, in the 1980s, that he painted with John Phillip Osborne at the Ridgewood Art Institute in New Jersey.

It is this method and palette that Ferrante uses with all of his paintings. Ferrante devoted all his efforts learning to capture the flow from light to shadow, atmosphere, weather and time of day in his year-round Plein Air (painting outdoors) painting sketches. He has been a studio artist at The HUB on Canal, New Smyrna Beach for more ten years. Ferrante regularly participates in many shows and has won many top awards. His paintings hang in many galleries throughout the United States, including The Daytona International Airport and New Smyrna Beach City Hall.

ABOUT the ARTIST
follow on instagram @robinsathoff
"Since childhood, I have always enjoyed drawing and would spend hours off on my own creating. I had several years in school, studying other things, which afforded me the time to hone my skills with a ballpoint pen while taking notes. Later on, I discovered the joy of painting and my work exploded into color. I paint with acrylic on canvas and tend to use very vibrant colors, flowing lines, dots, and shapes. My intent is to produce high energy works that play with the eye and bring life to the wall. I am self-taught and draw heavily from nature and creation. When starting a piece, I often don't have a concrete end in mind. This allows the work to evolve organically, building on itself. When a piece is really working for me, it feels like I'm just flowing along with the pen or brush to see what emerges. This process can make me feel more like a middleman than an artist. Either way I just want to make something beautiful." — Robin Sathoff
