Jorge Yances exhibit "Memories of Cartagena" comes to Parthenon

Opening reception is 6-8 p.m. Friday

Yances immigrated to Nashville with his family when he was 13 and has a bio at the web site of the Metro Arts Commission here. He was profiled by the Nashville City Paper here in 2006. According to that profile,
[t]he Brentwood resident has sold more than 100,000 of his original works, received a commission from Walt Disney World, swept award shows by capturing first place awards and headlined major art shows in Las Vegas and Washington D.C.
Yances and his wife Pilar Arrieta are the former owners of the Palette Gallery and Café in Hillsboro Village. Yances' son Jorge Arrieta is a Nashville artist in his own right.
