The Tulare Historical Museum is pleased to announce our newest exhibit in the Museum's Heritage Room "Like a Box of Chocolates: Paintings by George Tanimoto." The opening reception for this event is 5-7 p.m. Thurs., Sept. 13. The reception is free of charge and refreshments will be served. The exhibit will remain on display through November 3, 2012.

George Tanimoto has maintained an interest in art all his life and pursued it ardently after his retirement. His education was at Sanger High School and he is a graduate of Fresno State College. Before his retirement George was a Special Education Teacher. George Tanimoto lives in Porterville and for 32 years has been a member of the Porterville Art Association.

He attended art classes from Margaret K. Wheeler and Tom Howell at the Porterville College and many adult education art classes and workshops by prominent nationally known artists.

George works in several mediums and fellow artists say he is an "Artist of the Moment". What interests him is what he paints. The versatility of his work is what makes his paintings interesting and exciting. Art is a means of communicating and art is how he expresses himself.

Art runs in the Tanimoto family and his grandfather was a tombstone cutter and his sister Joyce Tuck is also an accomplished artist. George is an artist with a future. View his work and feel the excitement.
