a-dsc_6410“Mi Herencia” Art Exhibit by Roel Flores

This October, the McAllen Chamber of Commerce’s Creative Incubator is proud to offer an exhibition from Mr. Roel Flores.

Mr. Flores has an artistic family, which consists of a brother & nephew, who occasionally exhibit together.  The passion for Art runs deep in the Flores family particularly in Roel Flores who was born in Weslaco, Texas and still resides there. Their combined artwork exhibits have consisted of paintings on canvas, oil & acrylic, with each artist having a different perspective and unique style.

On this occasion, Roel calls this exhibit “Mi Herenica” to go along with heritage month.  Mr. Roel Flores’s, art work reflects an era when, the valley was young, untouched by commercial buildings and he worked in the fields.  Roel is the oldest of five brothers of seasonal migrant worker parents.

Mr. Flores’s accomplishments are many, but he is most proud to have received the National Arts & Humanities Proclamation from President Obama in 2013.

In additional to painting Roel is an accomplished guitarist.

A talented and soft spoken gentleman, Roel has exhibited in many locations, some which include the Weslaco Museum, San Benito, Austin, Houston, Chicago and in 2015 at the McAllen Creative Incubator.

“Mi Herencia” exhibit will be on display during Art Walk on Friday October 7th, and will remain on display for the entire month.

The focus of Incubator Exhibits is to promote awareness of local artists. On a monthly basis the Creative Incubator features talented artists who exhibit and join in for Art walk on the first Friday of every month.  A great variety of talented Artists have joined us from Corpus Christi as well as RGV residents.
