Tao LaBossiere stands with his wife Amy during the opening reception of the "Art For The Open Heart" show Sunday night. Tao, a volunteer exhibit coordinator of ArtSpace Gallery at 555 Asylum Ave. in Hartford since 1997, was recently diagnosed as needing open-heart surgery. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork are going to the Tao LaBossiere Open Heart Fund.
