“Aquí Estamos, Here Wear Are” Art Show Opening Reception
February 5, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us for an opening reception to see the work of Pulitzer Prize winner José Galvez on Friday, February 5 from 6 – 9pm at the City Gallery (118 S Person St.). For over 40 years, José Galvez has used black and white film to create a powerful and unparalleled historical record of the Latino experience in America. His compelling work, done with respect, pride and no pretense, captures the beauty of daily life. For José, photographing the lives of Latinos is not a one-time project or “current passion” but a lifelong commitment. All are invited to come and learn more about Latino life in North Carolina through art. This event is part of the First Friday Gallery Walk and is made possible through the NC Council of Churches, Vintage Church and the City Gallery and generous funding from Z. Smith Reynolds. The show will be up all month.
