Dos Experiencias, Una Identidad: René Arceo Prints

Born in rural Mexico (1959), Rene Arceo spent his teenage years in Guadalajara and crossed into the U.S. in 1979, eventually settling in Chicago. Working at graphics workshops,  he reached his artistic maturity in the printing medium of linocuts. The artist deliberately chooses to create multiples rather than one-of-a-kind compositions enabling greater accessibility and affordability. As a Chicago Public School art educator, lecturer and influential printmaker, Arceo’s artistic circle continues to emanate outward like ripples in a pond to the next generation. This exhibit focuses on his most visually captivating endeavors, which have been clustered around three recurrent themes: spirituality, portraiture and indigenous peoples. 

This exhibition will open with a reception at 6:00 on January 23, 2015. It will remain open through July 12, 2015.
