Juneteen: Past Meets Present

Instead of talking about a person buried at LGS, I want to to showcase two Black creatives who are bringing the past into the present.

When someone recently made me aware of Megan Mariah of Everthine Antiques & Stationery (who resides in Wisconsin) I was enthralled by her esthetic, but her shop is so much more than that. Mariah says this about her journey toward stationery designing and antique collecting/sales:

I wanted to create a collection that honors my ancestors and inspires people like me, who love antiques , to see themselves represented in them.

Cedrick Smith is a local Savannah artist who mixes painting with antique cabinet cards to show that the struggles of yesterday are ever-present today. He urges the viewer to use their voice and bring their vigor to the polls:

Don’t forget with all the chaos around the world and everyday living challenges, more than ever you need to exercise you right to vote.
