Monster Stories

 —  —

Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 W. Rio Salado Parkway , Tempe, AZ 85281

Please save the date! I will have over 10 pieces of art in this exhibit!

Monster Stories explores popular culture, literary characters, mythology and the idea of the “other” in society. 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the famous novel “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley. This thought provoking story reflects an age old question, who is the real monster? Shelley’s work purposes timeless ethical questions about science, technology culture and empathy. Monster Stories features monster imagery from local and national artists, pop culture toys and memorabilia as well as thoughtful engagement opportunities for all ages.

Exhibit on display Sept. 14, 2018-Jan. 6, 2019

The Husband and Wife Art Team - Manny & Janet Burruel

Olney Gallery at Trinity Cathedral, 100 West Roosevelt St, Phoenix

The Burruels have created a world of plants and trees inhabited by creatures great and small. They take workshops together at the Mesa Art Center and consider this printmaking time as quality time together. They have different approaches to the medium with a similar palette of bright vibrant colors. Janet states, "This work reflects the peace I get from looking at trees." Her work imitates the magic of light coming through a stained-glass window. Manny often displays a sense of humor in his work. He states "I like when my work makes people smile."

Manny studied art at Glendale Community College. His work has been included in several book publications and has locally displayed his work since the late 90s. Janet is a local playwright and award-winning writer, and in the last three years has been professionally showing her visual artwork in galleries around Phoenix.
