From Suzie Boland, president of RFB Communications Group:
The Tampa Museum of Art will host an exhibition of selected works by local artist Carolyn F. Heller from March 1-10, 2013.
The first weekend of the exhibition coincides with the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts. Heller, a well-known Florida artist, created works of bold shape and vivid color. Her art will be on view in the Saunders Foundation Gallery.
“We are so pleased to be working with the Tampa Museum of Art to share our mother’s art with her friends and the broader community,” said Fran Heller, one of Carolyn’s daughters and the executor of her estate. “This exhibition is a perfect opportunity to allow local residents and art lovers to see these special works in person.”
Said Todd Smith, executive director of the Tampa Museum of Art:
“We love the energy of Carolyn’s art, and are looking forward to this exhibition and meeting her many friends and admirers."
A preview reception is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 28. Those interested in attending should consult the online gallery website, www.carolynhellerart.com, to request an invitation.
The recipient of the 2013 Carolyn F. Heller Grant presented by the Arts Council of Hillsborough County will be announced at the preview reception.
