February Solo Gallery 

Watercolors by Carol Burman 

February 5 – 25

February will be a special time at Manatee County Cultural Alliance, dba Arts Council of Manatee County with many events offered during this romantic month. Watercolorist, Carol Burman will be decorating the solo gallery walls with her exquisite paintings, showcasing her immense talent. The show is titled, “A few of Life’s Impressions” and can be viewed from  February 5- 25.  An opening reception will be on Friday, February 5, 6:00-9:30 pm., coinciding with First Friday Art Walk in Village of the Arts, Bradenton.

Carol comes from a long lineage of talented family members. Her grandfather, George Freeman designed the Federal Building in Sarasota and the Crosley house in Bradenton, and her Mother was a painter.  She began painting in High School and then traveled the world as a trapeze artist in circuses, fairs and expositions.  She was also a competitive water skier.  After her Mother died in 2004, she picked up a paintbrush to honor her likeness with a portrait and hasn’t stopped since.  She has been trained to paint in watercolor by her idol, Herbie Rose.

MCCA is hosting a second artist on Friday, February 5, 6:00-9:30.   Henna tattoo artist Elizabeth Harper from Gravity Henna will also be in our gallery. Henna art is all the rage for all ages.

Elizabeth uses all natural organic powders, lemon juice, and high quality essential oils to create a temporary but lasting impression. Henna tattoos usually last from one to three weeks. Perfect for Valentine’s Day. This is a great art form to experience for Valentines Day!  Wear your heart on your sleeve with temporary henna.  She can draw anything for you to show off body art.
