Armando Villareal
"The Artist I Am"

"That's kinda my thing. I was always told to find a style or subject matter and stick with it cause that's what my collectors want.. and I never could do that, I took my own path and did what I wanted. I kinda ended up just being the artist I am".


This month, Villareal will take viewers on a journey through a lifetime of art, which led him to an Emmy, artwork in the homes and offices of some of the most famous sports athletes, and the greatest tributes to veterans.


Exhibition runs Feb. 3rd - 28th

Artist Reception Feb 10th -  Armando will do live painting demos from 11-4 pm/ Artist reception from 4-5 pm.  

Villarreal is known for his hyperrealistic sports portraits, live painting demos during the Superbowl, and painting done on NFL and college teams' helmets.  Villarreal recently won an Emmy for tribute work done on helmets honoring two Utah Utes football players who tragically passed away.
