Karibu (pronounced kah-ree-boo) means “welcome, come in” in Swahili. This celebratory concept of Black culture, not unlike the Southern tradition of Sunday dinner after church, invites everyone to embrace the journey of life and learn through the eyes and creativity of local Black artists.
This Harlem Renaissance-style exhibition is intended to build cultural bridges (not walls) between different communities.
Curated by ATB Fine Art Group, Inc.

Sandra Thompson: In Black and White
February 12 – March 19
Capturing the arched entries, ornate façades, lush vias, and tree-lined streets of Palm Beach on her colorful canvases has been a vow fulfilled by Sandra Thompson over many decades. Distilled to their essence, her meticulous pen and ink drawings of these same locales show a mastery of draftsmanship and an ability to capture in minute detail all that she observes. Thompson studied art and architecture at the Cooper Union in New York and, after moving to Fort Lauderdale in the early 1960s, became the first ever editorial artist at the Sun Sentinel.

Stephania Conrad: A Restrospective
January 8 – February 6
“I pour all that I know and feel into the marks on the page, the canvas, or into the shapes of the clay,” says Stephania Conrad.
“Striving for unity and classical beauty, I work toward harmony by integrating the physical and emotional aspects of a figure or a landscape. When inspired, I lose a sense of myself—and create the vision you see that is ultimately my product.”
