The St. Augustine Art Association proudly presents Then & Now: 50 Years of Veterans Experiences Exhibit.  On display July 2 – August 22, 2021, the exhibit provides a voice and stage for Veterans with a riveting, sometimes raw, emotionally-charged exhibition.

The artwork demonstrates the healing power of art by showcasing eight individuals who use painting, sculpture, photography, poetry and other creative outlets.  These Veterans share their experiences from subtle murmurs of anguish to cries for support and understanding.

A focal point of the exhibit will be a replicated five-by-eight-foot holding cell.  This is a special ‘shout out’ to American Hero, Army Major (RET) Theodore Gostas.  He’s a former POW who was held in captivity for over five years; four-and-a-half of them  spent in solitary confinement.

During First Friday Art Walk on August 6, 2021, meet and hear from those who’ve served in our Military.  Veterans with the Wounded Warrior Project, which has generously sponsored and supported the exhibit, will be in attendance.

At 7:00pm, participating artist Father Ron Moses Camarda will give a presentation on his experiences during the battle of Fallujah from October to December in 2004. They inspired his book, Tear in the Desert.
