What toys did you have as a kid? “Playtime” exhibits monosilkscreen and monotype prints of toys and childhood fun. Manny Burruel hopes the images will bring the viewer joy and happy memories. Burruel is a printmaker and painter. His subject matter is often autobiographical. He likes to use objects and images that represent his past and may trigger a personal connection for the viewer. Burruel’s work in this exhibit will be a stroll down memory lane for kids of the 60s and 70s.

Burruel studied art at Glendale Community College and has shown his work in galleries and museums throughout Arizona. He is an affiliated artist with XICO Arte y Cultura. Burruel’s work was included in Contemporary Chicana and Chicano Art, published by the Arizona State University Hispanic Research Center in 2002.
