Art Box hosts exhibitions through May 1 in downtown DeKalb

The Art Box in downtown DeKalb is hosting two mini in-house exhibitions through Saturday, May 1: “Selected Work 1968-2017,” photographs by Larry Gregory, and “Home on the Range,” paintings by Steven Tritt.

Online viewing also is available at

Larry Gregory is professor emeritus at Northern Illinois University’s School of Art and Design – Photography. This selection of photographs shows Gregory’s versatility within the medium of photography. His images portray environments with book worthy experiences prompting the stills that transform into photographic prints with richly defined shadow details and highlights kissed with the white of the paper.

Steven Tritt is an alum of Northern Illinois University and holds a Master of Fine Art degree in painting. Before the pandemic, Tritt became interested in one of the origins in making America great, the extermination of the American bison. His paintings are graphic in the manner of his expressionistic method of painting with paints and additives holding true to himself by using enough abstraction for visual interpretation. One painting actually has a visually putrid air about itself.

A closing reception is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 1. Masks and social distancing are required.

The Art Box is located at 308 E. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb. Contact Dan Grych by phone at 815-758-0313 or email
