There have been many of them over the decades since The Ringling and the Sarasota Art Association, now called Art Center Sarasota, opened their doors more than 80 years ago. Some were contemporaries, working, teaching and playing together in what came to be called a writers and artists colony.

For a few, their importance to us today is primarily what they achieved here; for others, their names are familiar around the international art world.
