Current Exhibit 

Creating a Life in A New World: Paintings by Cornelio Campos

April - August 2018

Cornelio Campos is a self-taught Mexican-American artist based in Durham, N.C. Mr. Campos immigrated to the United States from Mexico as a teenager—a journey and process that now influence many of his paintings. Vibrant colors, iconic American symbols, and intricate geometric patterns define Mr. Campos’s work. Through his paintings, he illustrates some of the harsh realities of immigrating to America that immigrants often overlook. Moreover, Mr. Campos’s paintings exemplify techniques that he has learned through observation, and often defy traditional color schemes. His paintings contain therapeutic, controversial, and enlightening elements that make them both unique and unforgettable.

Mr. Campos’ art has been exhibited in a host of local settings, including the UNC’s FedEx Global Education Center, Duke University’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Durham's Pleiades Gallery, and the Mexican Consulate in Raleigh. One of his pieces hangs on permanent display in UNC’s Campus Y; a large mural that he helped paint—created in collaboration with “The U.S./Mexico Border” class at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies—graces the side of Torero’s Mexican Restaurant at West Main and Duke Streets in Durham. 

The exhibit will be on display in Judea Reform Congregation's Rosenzweig Gallery until late August 2018.

About the Rosenzweig Gallery

The Rosenzweig Gallery of Judea Reform Congregation is the only gallery in the Chapel Hill-Durham area with dedicated space for the display of Judaic art and artifacts. Judea Reform Congregation’s founding Rabbi, Efraim Michael Rosenzweig was not only the congregation’s first spiritual leader, he was also a poet, an artist, a social activist and an art collector. His personal collection of Judaic artifacts was donated to Judea Reform, and became the core of the Rosenzweig Collection. (READ THE WHOLE ROSENZWEIG GALLERY STORY . . . )

The Rosenzweig Gallery rotates every four months and includes a gallery wall for 2-D work as well as a glass display case for 3-D work and other items and artifacts.
