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. 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. 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.

Jazz
Brian Culbertson The XX Tour
Over the course of crafting a 20-album catalogue and architecting more than 30 Billboard No. 1 singles as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Brian Culbertson has charted his own unique course in music. Label him jazz and he makes a funk record. Call him an R&B artist and he drops an acoustic jazz trio collection. Brand him pop and he creates a 32-minute New Age opus. Present day brings his aptly titled “XX” album – those X’s are Roman numerals – finds Culbertson making a record unlike any of his previous releases because of its diversity. Recreating that cool sound live for fans is the best part as Culbertson and his band embark on The XX Tour, playing more than 70 concert dates. In addition to performing much of the new album, the set list includes cuts from Culbertson’s hit-filled songbook along with a segment showcasing songs from “Winter Stories,” an album released last fall that placed him in an acoustic jazz trio setting for the first time. Possessing style, panache and a savvy business mind capable of moving the needle in music and beyond, Culbertson founded and curates the annual Napa Valley and Chicago Jazz Getaways, which have attracted guests from all over the globe to experience his premier events.
