Latino Education Celebration

The Latino Education Celebration recognizes our students and the people who serve them, including our sponsors, members, and volunteers. Every year, the NCSHP hosts a fundraising Gala where attendees are able to participate in a silent auction and enjoy an evening of music, dance,  and food! 


Due to covid-19, this year the Latino Education Celebration will be held virtually through zoom on NOVEMBER 7, 2020.

The Gala is one of the NCSHP's major fundraising events. All proceeds recruited during our GALA go directly to our educational programs and initiatives!

Artist: Guillermo Moto Morales

My name is Guillermo Moto Morales. I'm from Zapoapan de Cabañas Municipio de Catemaco, Veracruz, Mexico. I've lived in North Carolina for over 20 years. I have always had a strong passion for painting ever since I was little. When I am painting, I feel that I can express myself and open my mind up to show my creative side. It is very therapeutic for me. My inspirations for my paintings include nature, animals, and outdoors. Some common themes are landscape and mystical. I am happily married and have one daughter.

Oil painting on canvas. An intriguing, stunning, and breathtaking March sunset from the remote and peaceful country side of Selma, North Carolina. The empty and isolated road shows the quietness of the scene, while the exquisite red orange sky along with the dark green and symmetrical pine trees bring out a feeling of serenity. The artist utilized ample of distinct, special, and precise brush techniques in the painting to create the realistic effect on the trees, grass, clouds, and sky.  Dimensions: 16"× 20"

"Altar de Muertos"

Oil painting on canvas. The painting portrays the Mexican holiday, The Day of the Dead "Dia De Los Muertos." The "ofrenda" on the altar is a major symbol which includes four elements: water, wind, earth, and fire. Water is left in a pitcher so the spirits can quench their thirst. The traditional paper banners represent the wind. Earth is represented by food, especially bread and fire is represented by the candles. The artist used vibrant colors along with the three skeletons to demonstrate that this holiday is a celebration of life and a way to keep the memories of loved ones alive. Dimensions: 16"× 20"

Artist: Cornelio Campos 

Cornelio Campos is a self-taught Mexican-American artist based in Durham, NC. Mr. Campos immigrated to the U.S. 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 his work. Though his paintings, he illustrates some of the harsh realties of immigrating to American that immigrants often overlook. Moreover, he highlights deep-seated political issues that contribute to Mexican immigration, including the implementations of the North American Free Trade Agreement. As an artist with no formal training, his 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



Acrylic on canvas. A beautiful painting of a white lily. 30"x40"
