Artwork by Cornelio Campos opens Friday (1/9) at the Carrboro ArtsCenter with a gallery reception today from 6-9 p.m..
Campos' epic canvasses with folk themes offer a mythologizing look at U.S. immigration politics. Originally from Cheran, Michoacan, Campos also led a folkloric dance troupe before focussing primarily on his painting. The show runs through the end of January.
If you're going to the Carrboro ArtsCenter anyway, why not check out DaShawn Hickman's new band, Steel Moven. (Hickman is the great pedal steel player from the Mt. Airy Church of God gospel trio The Allen Boys.)
Music starts tonight at 8:30 pm; Hooverville opens. $15, more info at www.artscenterlive.org.
