Art Box displays Brazilian prints through May 30
DeKALB – “Made in Brazil”, an exhibition of prints by international artists from the collection of Robert Bornhuetter, professor emeritus in printmaking from Northern Illinois University School of Art, will be on display at The Art Box, 308 E. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb, through May 30.
Bornhuetter took 12 trips to Brazil between 1986 and 2003. The multiple trips allowed him to make friends, meet other artists and exchange thoughts on artistry in general, he said.
“I became familiar with the culture and assorted geographic sites that I acquired a sense of belonging and to this end, I started to collect art works,” he said. “The atelier/gallery I was dealing with in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is Glatt/Ymagos, and is a haven for artists from Brazil and international environs as well. I started to exchange prints with other artists to reflect the diversity of styles and to have examples on hand.
