Easter Seals art in the Village

My next Sunday column is about the Easter Seals Southwest Florida's art initiative program and its upcoming show at the Village of the Arts beginning on June 4.
I was invited over to the Manatee County-based organization earlier this week to chat with art teacher Karen Davenport and get a sneak peak of the art that will be shown during the month-long exhibition.

The wonderful art collection is done by Easter Seals' clients, all of whom live with physical and developmental disabilities. But all that melts away when it comes to art as seen in the photos Davenport shared with me.

If interested in the show, visit Marina Adair's Gallery #11 at 925 12th St. W., Bradenton. Works will be displayed through June 30. The public is invited to a free reception from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. June 4 at the gallery. RSVP at 355-7637, ext. 410.
