You'll always find a good show at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art because of its fabulous permanent collection of Baroque art, its equally fabulous (but less serious) collection of circus memorabilia, and the lovingly restored mansion of John and Mable. You can also count on special exhibitions.

Right now, "American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell" is on view and continues through Sept. 8. It features 53 paintings and four sculptures by 42 artists from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum and covers the dramatic decades in the 20th century when American artists came into their own, claiming a distinctive voice that didn't try to mimic the assertive European chorus. Shown is Georgia O'Keeffe's Yellow Leaves, 1928, oil on canvas.

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, at 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with extended hours to 8 p.m. Thursdays. Admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $5 for children. It includes entry to the art museum, historic Ca d'Zan mansion and the Circus Museum. Admission is $10 for adults from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursdays. (Ca d'Zan isn't open during extended hours.) Admission is free Monday to the art museum only; (941) 359-5700 or ringling.org.
