Arts on Douglas was established in 1996 by artist and Atlantic Center for the Arts (ACA) founder, Doris Leeper and, artist/benefactor, Ed Harris. Originally conceived as a commercial gallery to promote the work and careers of professional artists from the state of Florida, the gallery has since formalized its affiliation with Atlantic Center for the Arts, combining missions, resources and programs, in order to further facilitate community engagement with the creative arts.Arts on Douglas is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
Located in historic downtown New Smyrna Beach, the building was formerly a used furniture warehouse, and originally a 1930's era Ford showroom and service center. The building was transformed into a 3,500 square foot exhibition space that presents 18 exhibitions a year. The gallery's ongoing exhibition program features a broad spectrum of artistic styles, media and temperaments, including experimental genres in its newest addition, the alt_space gallery.

Megan... Classy, spunky and hilarious. My daughter Jorja thinks that she looks like Jackie Kennedy. Megan is standing next to my Art Appreciation professor paintings, Stacey Fletcher-Reynolds. Thank you for having our class check out Arts on Douglas.
