Arts Visalia Presents

Seen and Unseen-The Art of Ricardo Favela

Arts Visalia is excited to host the inspiring Seen and Unseen art exhibition. The exhibition will honor the life’s work of Chicano Artist Ricardo Favela, and other Central Valley artists to bring awareness to the region’s rich cultural diversity. Born in Dinuba, Favela started his education at COS and later transferred to Sacramento State College. Favela’s commitment to the community and education guided him to engagement with the Royal Chicano Air Force (RCAF). This led to his engagement with the United Farm Workers Union (UFW), the Chicano cultural arts movement and statewide and local civil rights and community empowerment. This exhibition will celebrate how Favela used his artistic voice to reflect the Chicano experience. Seen and Unseen will be featured in the gallery from March 3rd-26th, 2021.

Arts Visalia is anticipating having our doors open Wednesday-Saturday from noon-5:30 p.m. to allow our visitors to experience the artworks in person. However, we will continue to have a virtual gallery tour available on our website at www.artsvisalia.org/virtual-tours to allow everyone an opportunity to see these engaging exhibitions. If Arts Visalia is unable to have our doors open we will be offering the opportunity to schedule your viewing experience Wednesday through Saturday from 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM.

In April Arts Visalia will be hosting the works of sculptor Peggee Davis and painter Jana Botkin. Peggee Davis creates ceramic works depicting the female form. According to Davis “They have a life of their own as they express my feelings about the political time, the state of a friendship, the love I feel for my daughters, the challenge of the body itself.” As a life-long resident Jana Botkin’s goal is to find the things that make Tulare County unique. She continually searches out the beauty of our county, and the parts that make rural living so appealing.
