Blacksmith Enrique Vega talks with Artist Studio Project about his participation in the ten month traveling exhibit "Raices / Roots". Where Does Your Art Come From? ¿De Dónde Nace Tu Arte? A Collaborative: A ten month traveling exhibit of Artist Studio Project and The Latino Community Credit Union - November 4, 2011 -- Sep 28, 2012 This exhibition, co-curated by Artist Studio Project (ASP) founder Rafael A. Osuba and Visual Artist Gustavo De Los Rios, asks the essential question, Where does your art come from? ¿De Dónde Nace Tu Arte?
The artists in Raices / Roots include both U.S.-born and immigrant artists, among them Cuban, Columbian, Peruvian, Argentinean and Mexican American who reside in North Carolina and have shown their works throughout the United States, and internationally. The 10-piece show will be on exhibit in the Latino Community Credit Union in Durham starting November 4th, 2011 through the end of December 31st. The exhibition will then travel the state for nearly a full year, bringing original artwork to viewers in communities large and small before moving on to its next locations. The show includes paintings, sculptures, and a music performance work displayed on short circuit TV. It features four professional visual artists and one professional musical composer. It also showcases an emerging artist with the intention of encouraging other artists to continue to create and develop their craft as ASP works to open doors, build collaborations, find creative venues and platforms to showcase their work. The current exhibition is a small sampling of the talent found here in North Carolina. Artists include: Enrique Vega (Blacksmith/Sculptures), Eduardo Lapetina (Abstract Painter), Gustavo Delos Rios (Visual Artist), David Sovero (Visual Artist), Alejandro Santoyo (Pianist/Composer), and Levy Vargas (Emerging Visual Artist). www.artiststudioproject.com
