Ahoy art friends, especially those in South Florida. A college friend has loaned 16 ancient artifacts from his private collection to pair with 16 works of modern artists in an exhibit called “Justified + Ancient.” In this exhibit, contemporary artists display their work side by side with ancient pieces, dating from 3000 B.C.E to the 19th century, in an exploration of what might make art timeless. The exhibit runs from November 1-17, 2022 at the Mara Art Studio and Gallery, 421 Fifth Street, Suite A, in Sarasota, Florida.
My friend is interested in continuing the exhibit to other galleries, museums or art fairs and I would be super grateful for any contacts or suggestions that could help him continue the exhibit. Reach out at carl AT carlkruse DOT com.

As one of the artists selected for this exhibit I am grateful for this article. We all need to support local artists, galleries and arts education. This collaboration between The Mara Studio + Art Gallery, The Halo Arts Project and the antiquities collector affords a wonderful opportunity for the artists and the community. I think the show is exciting ,stimulating and unique. I hope many people will experience it and be impacted in a positive way. Thank you to all involved.
Hey Midge! Thank you so much for checking in and for sharing your thoughts on what is happening!
