Call to Artists
The galleries at Ormond Memorial Art Museum are temporarily closed for renovation. Exhibitions will resume in 2022. A call to artists will post in late 2021, when we will begin accepting submissions from artists in a variety of styles and media.
OMAM's Pop-Up at the PAC
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 two, in person art exhibits. The first exhibit, Overcoming the Challenge, is on display now at the PAC, and is open to the public Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. Please enter through the Box Office entrance.
We are currently accepting submissions for Exhibit 2, which is open to all artists or collaboratives of artists submitting original 2-D works of art or design
Submission Deadline: July 26, 2021
Artists Notified of Acceptance: August 4
Show Dates: August 18 - October 15
Please submit two-dimensional artwork that touches on the following themes:
♦ Being Present - What you can gain in a moment?
♦ Unity, Community, Synergy
♦ Sharing Space
Due to the specifications of the exhibit space, some limitations apply. Two-dimensional work must be no larger than 60” tall and 60” wide. Artwork will not be for sale, but we are happy to connect the artist directly to interested buyers. The building is secured with an alarm, and the artwork is insured.

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.
