OMAM's Pop-Up at the PAC

Exhibit Location: 399 N US Highway 1, Ormond Beach, FL 32174

As our community begins to share space in person again, Ormond Memorial Art Museum is sharing space with the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center (PAC) to curate another in person art exhibit. Our second Pop-Up @ The PAC exhibit, Holding Space, is open to the public for viewing between 8am and 5pm each weekday now through October 15th. Please enter through the Box Office entrance. We are currently accepting submissions for our third PAC exhibit, A Gallery of Gratitude, which is open to all artists or collaboratives of artists submitting original 2-D works of art or design.

"A Gallery of Gratitude" Exhibit Statement

Whether sparked by nature, people, pets, literature, food, music, or a higher power, the practice of gratitude connects individuals to something larger than themselves. In this community exhibit, artists consider the art of gratitude - what inspires it, and the goodness it can bring to life. Artists are encouraged to submit artwork and an artist’s statement for each piece, that reflects on the practice of gratitude in their life. This exhibit is open to all artists or collaboratives of artists submitting original 2-D works of art or design.

Call for Teaching Artists

The Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens collaborates with dedicated artists and educators to provide creative learning opportunities for the community. We’re excited to continue expanding our education programs, and invite instructors interested in teaching youth and/or adults to submit a proposal. All media will be considered, and classes may draw on any art-related, garden-related, or creative theme.

In addition to hands-on art classes, we are also looking for instructors interested in leading casual discussions on various art-related and garden-related topics, and instructors interested in teaching in a digital format. Please contact Kristin Heron at KHeron@ormondartmuseum.org to submit your ideas.
