MIAMI, FL, USA, October 31, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Carl Kruse Arts Blog invites all to the “Justified + Ancient” art exhibit taking place from November 1-17, 2022 at the Mara Art Studio and Gallery, 421 Fifth Street, Suite A, in Sarasota, Florida.
The exhibit pairs 16 ancient artifacts from a private collection side by side with 16 works of modern artists in an exploration of what might make art timeless. The ancient artifacts date from 3000 B.C.E to the 19th century, spanning different civilizations, dynasties, and artistic styles: From Stone Age mortar-and-pestle to 19th century Pacific Island tribal masks. The collection reflects a lifetime of travel to almost every country in the world.. The modern artists are from the local Florida area.
All art sales during the exhibit benefit the Halo Arts Project Fellowship Awards, which seeks to provide financial and programming resources to visual artists in the region.
