Local artistsÕ exhibit

Mary Sullivan and Father Jun Manalo are teaming up to display their paintings at Mission Coffee in Fremont during the month of October.

Father Jun is the Parochial Vicar at Mission San Jose, Saint Joseph Catholic Church and School. His abstract paintings are colorful and exciting. Father Jun is a self-taught artist who has been painting for almost twenty years. In his early childhood his parents taught him that, "God has designed us according to his will and painted us according to his wisdom." Father Jun enjoys music, dance, composition, and photography, but painting is his bliss. He says that he uses oil paint to prove his patience, acrylic paint to test his perceptiveness, and paints in abstract form to express his philosophy in life. Painting also expresses his connectedness to God's creation and his relationship to the greatest painter that we call God our Father.

Mary Sullivan is a local Fremont artist who began painting about five years ago. She has studied with a few well-known artists such as Gary Jenkins, Arleta Pech, Charles Waldman, Kathleen Dunphy and the well-known Southwestern artist Heinie Hartwig. She enjoys painting still life, landscapes, seascapes, and floral paintings. Oil painting has become a very important part of her life because it brings her joy, great excitement, and satisfaction. Learning new ways to apply paint to canvas is challenging but fun.

An artist reception will be held on Sunday, October 13 from three p.m. to five p.m. For more information contact the artists, Sullivan at, and Father Jun at and
