Tape Art 2017

June 16, 2017 - September 20, 2017


What do artists from France, Iran, Brazil, Sweden, the Ukraine, England and the US have in common with a roll of tape?

They use it as a medium to create vibrant and creative artwork that will be displayed in “Tape Art 2017” this summer at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum!  The unique exhibition will open this Friday,  June 16 and run through Sept. 17.

Artist, Jay Walker,will be on hand at a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 16 to discuss an original tape mural he will install inside the museum.  Melissa Lesher will also discuss her process of tape sculpture.

All of the artwork including two dimensional images of landscapes, portraits, abstracts, text and sculptural pieces will be created with some form of the adhesive.

England’s Benjamin Murphy, Mark Khaisman of the Ukraine and Philadelphia’s Jay Walker all participated in the “Tape Art Convention 2016” in Berlin and widely considered the first international collaborative showing of artist’s working in tape.

Three of Murphy’s meticulously crafted electrical tape pieces will be on display at OMAM along with three of Khaisman’s unique works made using emulsion transfer on aluminum tape.

Tape art has its roots as a form of urban street art and is popular in Europe.  It can be similar to graffiti but less permanent (and less illegal!).  As with much installation art, the tape work created outside on walls, windows and even cars is created to deteriorate over its lifespan and eventually disappear.

The tape art show is sponsored by the Coral Sands Inn, Daytona Jeep Rental and the Ormond Brewing Co.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and noon to 4 p.m. on the weekend.  The surrounding gardens featuring sculptural tributes to veterans are open each day until dusk. Admission is free but a $2 donation is requested.
