Members of the PeakBiety team attended a preview reception Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013 at The Tampa Museum of Art. The agency helped with the 30-piece retrospective of Carolyn Heller’s vibrant artwork at the museum held from March 1-10, 2013. At the preview reception, friends and family swapped stories and enjoyed Carolyn’s favorite drinks, cosmopolitans and lemonade as well as and Southern specialties prepared by the Sono Cafe. Also at the reception, the Arts Council of Hillsborough County presented the recipient of the 2013 Carolyn F. Heller Grant to artist, Michael Parker.
“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,” says 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.”
“We love the energy of Carolyn’s art and are looking forward to this exhibition and meeting her many friends and admirers,” says Todd Smith, executive director, Tampa Museum of Art.
