Confluence: Israel
Art Center Sarasota, in partnership with The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee,
presents an exhibition showcasing cutting-edge works by emerging Israeli artists. This compelling exhibit offers a comprehensive look at the many facets of the Israeli experience by bringing exceptional artwork to the Sarasota community.

Shosh Dagan
, a well-known Israeli art curator, carefully selected 10 contemporary Israeli artists who transcend the rigid categories of nationality, geography and culture.

Confluence: Israel is the first of a series of exhibitions created by Art Center Sarasota to build bridges between different cultures through art. The Jewish Federation of Sarasota- Manatee seeks to create an understanding
of Israel and its people through education and interaction with the community. A meaningful partnership began between both of these organizations when Confluence: Israel was exhibited in Sarasota, Florida.
