Local’s Link Art Exhibit

Posted

The Link Art Gallery is opening a new exhibit next Friday, Jan.14, featuring works by Ted Briseno. 

Briseno was born and raised in Paris until the family moved to Mattoon when he was in junior high school.

Art was a major interest for him during school,  but law enforcement, another childhood dream, won out as a career choice. Briseno worked in law enforcement in California until his 2015 retirement.

He returned to Coles County after retirement and brought his art interest to a full-time position. 

“My creativity has allowed me to enjoy all venues of art — from feather painting to sculptures,” Briseno said.

Briseno’s exhibit runs from Jan. 14 – Feb. 11, and there is a special opening reception 5-6;30 p.m. Jan. 14.More information is available by contacting the Link Art Gallery at 217-466-8130.
