The Kerr Arts &B Cultural Center in Kerrville, Texas is offering visitors side-by-side exhibits of Mesoamerican Heritage-inspired Artist Andy Villarreal and the profoundly moving and edgy contemporary paintings and sculpture of “Eyfells and Eyfells.” The show runs from February 9th through March 26th, with a public reception from 2 to 4- pm on February 18th.

The paintings of Kristin Eyfells are existential icons of both celebrities and ordinary people that bring the viewer into deep contact with the personality and character of the faces Eyfells paints. Johann Eyfells’s sculptures use mass and shape is interesting ways that tease the eye to look again.

Andy Villarreal’s intense attraction to object emblematic of Mesoamerican culture makes visitor to his exhibit “Indigenous Mesoamerican Culture” feel like they may have stumbled upon a Shaman’s workshop. Artist Villarreal brings both an artist’s eye and a collector’s passion to his work, which is to immerse the viewer in the art and the passion.

“We rarely achieve such interesting visual juxtaposition,” comments Debbie Minns, Executive Director of KACC. Minns continues “The Mesoamerican theme has even influenced our “Chocolate Fantasy” celebration this year, which falls right in the middle of the Villarreal and Eyfells exhibits in February 12th from 1:3 pm.
