  • Characterized as “raw and emotionally charged,” the St. Augustine Art Association’s exhibit “Then & Now: 50 Years of Veterans Experiences” will feature works by eight veterans — five men and three women.

    Demonstrating the healing power of art, the exhibit features paintings, sculpture, photography, poetry and other creative outlets.

    A replicated 5-by-8 foot holding cell will be one of the exhibit highlights. The art installation honors Army Major (RET) Theodore Gostas, a former POW held in captivity for five years during the Vietnam War.

    In addition to the Vietnam War, artistic works represent 50 years of military history from the Cold War to conflicts in the Middle East. The veterans whose art will be displayed have served around the world in Europe, Vietnam, Cuba, Iraq, Afghanistan, Japan and Bosnia as well as other locations.

    The exhibit will open during First Friday Art Walk from 5 to 7:30 p.m. July 2 and will be on display through Aug. 22, 2021.

    During the exhibit, the St. Augustine Art Association will be open to veterans and military groups to host meetings, workshops, field trips, lectures and other events.

    Admission: Free

    When: 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday–Sunday; July 2–Aug. 22, 2021

    Where: 22 Marine St., St. Augustine at the St. Augustine Art Association
