“I’m a late-in-life artist and have found that it’s never too late to create new dreams and even see them grow,” shares Merrell. “May you follow your passions in life as well and may you be blessed in the process.”

The exhibit will run through December 31. The public is welcome to enjoy the gallery where art will be available for viewing and purchase, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

The Bhakti Gallery is an artists’ cooperative, supporting local artists and the connection between art and health. The gallery is within the Bhakti Wellness Clinic and this is the seventh art show at this location.
