Bryant created the painting for her son, Rod Bean, who owns a pest control business. He asked his mother if she could crete anything with rat traps; Bryant said she dreamt of this painting, completed it and gave it to her son for his birthday. The exhibit runs through Sept. 29 in the meeting room of the library during regular business hours and is free for the general public. - Staff Photos: Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
