Cultural Imperialism

WEEKEND TICKET:

May 04, 2001|By RANDY CARSON, Project manager Imperial County Arts Council

Tonight is your last chance to see artwork by Tony Auricchio at the Old Post Office Pavilion in El Centro. The show was billed as an "amateur art display," but Tony sold one of his paintings during the show and is no longer considered an amateur. More power to him.

The next installation at the OPOP will be a gathering of art students of Mary Helen Hitt. The show will open Monday and a free public reception will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Hitt is truly a talented artist and has run a studio in Brawley since 1960. The special tribute is an effort of love by more than a dozen of her current and former students.

At the Imperial Valley College art gallery, be sure to visit the second annual Juried Student Art Exhibition. Featured artists are Armando Rascon, whose bi-national mural project is entering its final stages along the border with Mexicali.

In celebration of California Archeology Month, the Brawley Public Library will present Quechan author and storyteller Preston Arrow-Weed. He will be signing his book, "Whirlwind Warrior," and sharing passages from the work at 6 p.m. Friday at the library.

Be sure to plan next week around our weekly concert series, "Friday Night at the Old Post Office Pavilion" at 230 S. 5th St. Featured bands will be Blind Fury and ForFit. This concert is not recommended for small children or those afraid of loud noises.

Looking ahead, we are excited about the plans under way for our summer arts and drama program. Please watch this column for details or stop by the OPOP after May 15 to pick up a flyer and registration packet.
