Meet Jacques Abreu

Meet Jacques Abreu, one of this month's featured artists at Gallery 141. His faith inspired paintings will be on display, and available for sale, at Gallery 141 all month. Jacques has extensive experience in drama and performing arts. Though hard to believe when you see the detail and intricacy of his work, painting is a new found passion Jacques discovered only 2 years ago.

Jacques is an instructor at The Chabod Academy Of The Arts. "His adventure in the arts started at a young age while traveling around the world. At 14 he went on his first mission trip to Chile and found that people responded to the arts. Returning to Chile the following year, he was with a team that focused on drama. Jacques has sung in “Grease” and played different leading roles in “Joseph and the Technicolored Dream Coat,” “Celebrate,” and “David.” Jacques’ passion is to powerfully impact people’s lives with drama and use the arts to help spread the message of God’s love."
