What we're about

Thank you for your interest in my group.

My name is Kristina and I am a real estate agent who loves art - paintings, sculpture, etc. I love it all.

If you enjoy visiting museums and would you like to meet other people with your same interest, this is the group for you.

You don't have to be an art aficionado to join our group, only someone who enjoys art and would like to see more of it.

We live in a great area for a group like this and you can expect to see events planned in Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton and beyond.

I am keeping each Meetup for this group limited to a small group size. For one thing, many of the venues/exhibits are better suited to smaller groups. The other reason is that I want to get to know people and I find smaller groups are generally more conducive to that.

Again, because of the high interest in this group and the fact that our scheduled meetups have members on a waiting list I will not allowing members to bring a +1. The meetup spots are reserved for group members.

Once you join our group, you must attend at least 1 meetup in any 2-month period. Right now there are people waiting to join this group so I want to be able to offer a spot to those who plan to attend events.

I will be tracking attendance and people who are No Shows for 1 event will be removed from the group.

Also, you are required to post a photo when you join our group.

Look forward to meeting you.

*Please Note: Right now our group is at its maximum number of 50 people. If you would like to be on the waiting list to join the group please feel free to join. As members leave the group you will be accepted to the group.
