art show opens on April 12
Artwork by Kevin Hosseini, Carpinteria’s best known teen painter, are now featured alongside works of
fiction and non-fiction at the Friends of the Library Used Bookstore, located at 5103 Carpinteria Ave.
Hosseini began painting when he was 9 years old and now, at age 18, the prolific painter has earned
several accolades for his art and had his works featured in impressive art venues around the world.
Painting has given the autistic teen an important outlet, increasing his confidence and allowing
him to express himself. His works will hang at the bookstore through the month of June and can
be viewed during normal business hours.
