Thays Art Gallery and Studio is an upscale gallery in the heart of Ormond Beach. Reclaimed wood from previous hurricane destruction has been upcycled and utilized as the canvas and/or framing for many of the works on display. Beach, surf, ocean and nature-related subjects dominate the creations and are apropos for a gallery located only blocks from the river and beach. Previously part of the Masterpiece Mixers Paint & Party franchise, Thays Gallery still offers “fun art” classes, but now in a fine art setting. Thays Gallery also plays host to many local events and fundraisers, offering the BYOB gallery for rent for special occasions.
