Discover Artistic and Architectural Inspiration in Maitland

The Maitland Art Center was founded as an art colony in 1937 by visionary American artist and architect, André Smith (1880-1959). This tradition continues at the Maitland Art Center today, with gallery exhibitions, art programming, and a strong curriculum of art instruction in an intimate atmosphere. Visit this historic, aesthetic gem set in the middle of busy Central Florida. The Art Center is one of the few surviving examples of “Mayan Revival” or fantasy architecture in the Southeast. The Center is recognized by the State of Florida as an historic site and is entered on the National Register of Historic Places.


CURRENT EXHIBITIONS


Battlefield

June 6 – August 1, 2014

Opening Reception: June 6, 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Featuring artwork by André Smith, Kevin Haran, Steven Gregory and Ellen Susan.

Battlefield explores the various relationships that exist during war and conflict. This thought-provoking exhibition brings together works by J. André Smith and his experience as an artist sent to the front lines, in contrast to a broad range of powerful artworks by contemporary artists working today. Each artist brings a unique perspective to a challenging subject. This exhibition is complimented by the concurrent exhibitions at the Waterhouse Residence Museum, Maitland Historical Museum, and Telephone Museum. The common theme across all five A&H museums provides visitors with a multidisciplinary perspective.
