Three Latino Artists Will Exhibit Works on Paper This Fall

September 19, 2017 | by the Office of Marketing and Communications

Three Chicago-based, Latino artists will exhibit their works on paper this fall at Elmhurst College.

Herman AguirreJavier Chavira and Gabriel Villa are stylistically diverse artists who work in a variety of media. Each artist expresses a very personal vision. Aguirre’s images are concerned with issues of loss and human fragility. Chavira’s drawings reference nature and celebrate the beauty of abstraction. Villa’s works portray the struggle of everyday life and the human condition.

The “Works on Paper” exhibition can be viewed days and evenings through Saturday, November 11 in the Founders Lounge of the Frick Center. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

This exhibition is one of about a dozen art shows that Elmhurst College hosts each academic year in two campus venues. In addition, the College’s A.C. Buehler Library permanently houses the College’s unparalleled collection of Chicago Imagist and Abstractionist Art, which explores the vibrant, often outrageous, yet precisely crafted works of Chicago artists between 1950 and the present.
