Arts Visalia September Exhibit & Opening Reception
Manuel Abad Solo Painting Exhibition
In September, Arts Visalia will host a solo painting exhibition by Manuel Abad from August 31 through September 30 with an opening reception on September 2, from 6:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. Manuel Abad was born in Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and came to the United States with his parents at the age of five. He graduated from Tulare Western High School and after military duty, moved to Houston, Texas, where he worked in the Iron Workers Industry. Manuel was inspired by the painter William Alexander and began to paint. Manuel and his wife returned to the San Joaquin Valley in 1987 where he worked at Porterville Glass until his retirement in 2013. It was at that time that he became a full time painter. His work has been shown in many local and regional venues. Check our website for more information on classes, museum tours, and other events.
