Raices/Roots: Where Does Your Art Come From? De Donde Nace Tu Arte? 

When: Nov. 4-Dec. 31 2011

The Latino Community Credit Union and the Artist Studio Project celebrate the opening of this traveling art exhibit, which features 10 pieces from five North Carolina Latino artists. It will be on display at the LCCU, 100 W. Morgan St., through the end of December, before visiting the nine other LCCU branches in the state.

The artists include both American-born and immigrant Latinos. The website for Apex's Cuban blacksmith and sculptor Enrique Vega boasts a picture of a gorgeous wrought iron archway he made for a 500-year-old Spanish door using traditional forging techniques. Painter Gustavo De Los Rios was born in Colombia and has worked at Artspace in Raleigh for the last eight years. Argentine abstract painter Eduardo Lapetina, a retired medical researcher, started painting at Carrboro's ArtsCenter 10 years ago. The exhibit also includes works by Peruvian visual artist David Sovero, Mexican-American pianist and composer Alejandro Santoyo, and Colombian visual artist Levy Vargas. Curator and ASP founder Rafael Osuba hopes the project will be a catalyst for other Latino-focused local exhibitions. —Meg Stein
