Arcenio Martin Campos - Human Trace

  • NoBA Art Space 200 Bala Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19004 United States (map)

Please join us on Saturday, April 14 for the opening of Arcenio Martin Campos' solo exhibit "Human Trace". This exhibition will be a nearly comprehensive presentation of Campos' figurative drawings and paintings. It will showcase a survey of over thirty artworks, ranging from intimate pastel drawings to abstract oil paintings. In his work, Campos is inspired by the personal and contemplative quality of Johannes Vermeer's small paintings and by Egon Schiele's raw and intense depiction of human figure.

You are also welcome to come to the Artist Talk on Friday, April 27 and have a unique opportunity to hear Martin Campos share his thoughts about figurative drawing and painting.

The exhibit runs from April 14 to May 5. The exhibit is curated by Maria Kraybill
