* Internationally exhibiting African artist Nzuji De Magalahaes exhibited her mixed media and textile series, “Daqui Dai (from here to there)” in October 2005. This series has since been exhibited by the Harlem Studio Museum in New York City as part of “Frequency” an exhibition organized by Thelma Golden and Christine Kim who selected thirty-five of the hottest, emerging, black artists from around the world. This series was purchased for their permanent collection.

* Russian artist Vladimir Zuev exhibited his series of intricate etchings as “Box Heart’s 2006 Artist of the Year.” His experience in printing graphic abstract etchings, ex-librises, and woodcuts makes his works popular all over the world. Using multiple
techniques such as; soft ground, engraving, and aquatint his prints are masterpieces found in collections such as; the Chebske Museum in the Czech Republic, the Malbork Castle Museum in Poland, the Museu Civico di Grafica in Italy, the Rops Museum in Belgium, and the Permanent Collection of Silpakom University in Thailand.

* Jewelry/Metalsmithing artist Donovan Widmer exhibited “(de) generative alchemy” in 2008 as a method to examine how ideologies evolve. Widmer’s artworks are an assemblage of appropriated images and materials that are deconstructed and combined with fabricated elements constructed through traditional metalsmithing processes. His work has been exhibited in international, national, regional, and local University and College galleries, as well as, commercial galleries.

* In 2008 Norwegian artist Reinhardt Sobye exhibited “The Angel and the Last Child on Earth,” a collection of large-scale portraits shown for the first time in the United States. Described by Pittsburgh art critic Kurt Shaw as “an artist of undeniable talent and remarkable tuition, the kind that rivals anyone getting attention on an international scale,” Sobye’s artwork combines photographed elements into scenes of surpassing strangeness that beckon the viewer into the vast, false structures that act as mirrors held up to civilization.

* Local multi-media artist Frank Ferraro and local composer Steve Pellegrino presented a live performance of the opera “Gravity and Grace” at Box Heart Gallery in 2009. A stage-based work that contained dance, original musical score, video, and performance, “Gravity and Grace” received a grant from the Heinz Endowments and was later premiered at the Shadyside Academy in Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania.

* 2012 marked the anniversary of Box Heart Gallery’s “12th Annual Art Inter/National Exhibition.” This invitational group exhibition explores space, how the immediate environment impacts the artistic process and influences what each artist creates. The exhibition has featured artists from countries such as: Norway, France, Brazil, Russia, Columbia, Vietnam, Peru, Iran, India, Switzerland, China, Bulgaria, Nigeria, Canada, Germany, Philippines, United States, and Chile. Inspired by the prestigious Carnegie International, we are thrilled to offer the Pittsburgh community an intimate yearly alternative.
