Current and Upcoming Exhibitions

Victor Bokas: A Bold & Colorful Journey

This fall, immerse yourself in the vibrant imagination of celebrated Central Florida artist Victor Bokas as the Art and History Museums of Maitland presents Victor Bokas: A Bold & Colorful Journey at the Maitland Art Center galleries. Having grown up in the Florida panhandle, Bokas’ work evokes the beauty of the Gulf Coast’s natural environment with playfulness and whimsy, often combining the region’s iconic tropical landscapes with familiar Floridian kitsch. Into this mix he frequently uses imagery inspired by his vintage flea market collection as well as his Greek heritage, often incorporating classical sculptures and columns into his paintings and collages. The exhibition will debut an exciting selection of Bokas’ newest paintings and mixed-media works created over the last two years. Featured will be more than 30 colorful palm tree variations, 60 collages celebrating the artists’ birthday, bird cages decorated with flowers, and large collages.

Trains, Planes, and Automobiles: Moving Maitland

This Fall in the Maitland Historical Museum — Learn how Maitland’s history has been shaped by the arrival of the train line in the 1870’s, and by the invention of the automobile and later by the construction of I-4 which bifurcates the city.
