A New Tampa artist who tries to capture the "vanishing countryside" in her works has a solo show at the TECO Public Art gallery through July 15.
According to www.tbo.com, New York native Dorothy Banker will have 26 paintings on display.
"Today, color inspires me to paint a variety of subjects related to our woods, lakes, streams, old barns and farms, and life as I remember it from my childhood," Banker writes on her website. "Recently I have been painting brighter than real life, imparting a magical feeling that the world is a richer, more beautiful place than we can see in our day to day lives."
You can see Banker's work during business hours at TECO's downtown location, 702 Franklin Street, according to www.tbo.com.
