Ocala, Magnolia Art Xchange to host ‘Art Outside the Lines’ Brunch in February

The City of Ocala will host an ‘Art Outside the Lines’ Brunch event on Saturday, February 18, 2023, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Magnolia Art Xchange, and tickets will go on sale later this week.

The event, which is in partnership with Magnolia Art Xchange (MAX), will feature brunch, signature coffee drinks, guest art speakers, and a performance by Tasha Robinson of the Ocala Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets to the event will go on sale beginning at noon on Friday, November 18. The ticket options will include:

  • Brunch Ticket: $30 online/$35 at the door – includes admission to the brunch.
  • Brunch/Tour Ticket: $35 online/$40 at the door – includes brunch and a guided bus tour of the city’s new public art.

According to the city, five dollars of every ticket sold will be donated to the artist-in-residency program at the Magnolia Art Xchange.

In addition, attendees will be able to purchase a chance-to-win ticket from the Magnolia Art Xchange for an opportunity to win prizes, and the proceeds from these tickets will benefit the not-for-profit arts incubator.

“Last year, our Beginning of Bolted Art event kicked-off with a brunch,” said Laura Walker, Cultural Arts and Sciences Division Head. “The brunch and accompanying music by members of the Ocala Symphony Orchestra, along with presentations by artists and arts advocates, were well received, and we are bringing it back this year for Art Outside the Lines.”

Walker added, “This event will be an excellent opportunity to tour recent additions to the City’s public art collection and to support Magnolia Art Xchange’s continued programming.”

Jesse Daugherty, Interim Director at the Magnolia Art Xchange, stated, “Attendees can meet our resident artists and see their work. Additionally, we hope this will raise awareness of the Magnolia Art Xchange’s residency program and encourage people to check out other events and services. We take pride in pushing Ocala’s art scene forward.”
