Bradenton, Florida -- You have the chance to experience unique and inspirational works of local art.

Laurel D. Rund will present her exhibit "Art from the Heart" which she says is a poem from her soul.

“In 2009, a life-changing event transformed me into the woman I am today. Never could I have imagined that the death of my husband of 42 years would take me on a journey through loss and grief to a redefined sense of self.  Death, an unexpected teacher, was the catalyst of my metamorphosis. The slow and painful healing process unfolded my creativity, and the ‘Essence of Laurel’ was born.

At times I mix paint in a cup or pick up a piece of chalk and apply it to canvas or paper; at other times I use color from a digital web palette.  I then morph and blend the images and, after this time of chrysalis, my ‘Art from the Heart’ emerges.”

Opening night is September 6th from 6:00 to 9:00 at the Solo Gallery, Arts Council Manatee County at 926 12th Street West in Bradenton.
