An artist lecture will be held at 1 p.m. on September 16th where Sandoval will discuss his technique, inspiration, and the evolution of his artistic style. In support of the artist lecture, the library will be hosting an art reception and festivities in celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day the same day. The Starr Co.

Rosendo Sandoval holds two Master’s degrees in Art from Texas A&I University in Kingsville and UTPA in Edinburg. Moving to the United States when he was 14, Sandoval draws from his experience and the culture across the unique region of Northern Mexico and Southern Texas to create his semi-realistic, romantic, large-scale painting styleSandoval_El Charro Negro.

“Rosendo Sandoval has a very keen eye on the world,” explains Gina Otvos, STC Library Art Gallery Associate. “He creates art about people and culture around him, is highly meticulous and methodical, and pursues a style and way of thinking about art that transports visitors into a world of his own.”

STC’s Library Art Gallery exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.
