ECHO Gallery Issues Call for Artists

Can you create a masterpiece from recycled materials? If so, the ECHO Gallery Committee would like to hear from you.

Members are seeking artwork depicting the theme “Too good to be threw: Art from recycled materials” for an exhibit that will run inside the Ocean Center’s ECHO Gallery, 101 N. Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach.

Individual artists, commercial businesses, nonprofit agencies, educational institutions and government agencies are invited to participate. They may use any medium except video or sculpture.

The deadline for submission is July 15, 2020.

For details, contact Volusia County Cultural Coordinator Robert Redd at or (386) 736-5953, ext. 15872. The committee will review submissions and select final works that will be displayed from September 2020 through June 30, 2021.

The ECHO Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and can be accessed by entering the Ocean Center from Auditorium Drive (across from the Peabody Auditorium) or from Earl Street.

Thanks to a $3 million grant from the voter-approved ECHO program in 2008, the ECHO Gallery was created at the Ocean Center to display local and traveling exhibits and highlight the environmental, cultural, heritage and outdoor activities in Volusia County.
