      Saturday, April 27th, 7-9pm

      Mexican painter Gabriela Villarreal is one of our most popular abstract artists. She has been painting and exhibiting her work around the world for over 24 years. Her earthy color palette is accented by touches of metallic gold leafing. These dynamic paintings are inspired by the vitality and color of the environment of the home where she grew up in Monterrey.

The night will incorporate live performances by Austin “Music Hall-of-Famer” Bill Carter, multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Rhodes and local artist and musician Bale Creek Allen on the drums.

            I am a lover of all things cars, especially vintage ones. I guess my dad’s love of cars rubbed off on me a little bit. I’ve always said that when I’m old enough to collect art (who knows when that will be), I want to have some pieces that feature cars. I always like to have my eye open for random art pieces that are somewhat car-themed. 

            I think this exhibit is really fun for both car or art lovers. It features several vintage cars that are published in the current issue of Borderlands. For a peek at the artwork that will be featured, click here: If you’re a car lover and this doesn’t get your blood running, I don’t know what will. Naturally, all the paintings are the “rear view” of vintage cars.

            Artwork is avaiable for purchase.
