In the Gallery

Hilde DeBruyne


September 1-30, 2022


Hilde DeBruyne is a Belgian-American artist living in Cumming, Iowa.  She is a sculptor and designer in clay, metal, and bronze.  Her work has been exhibited internationaly and is included in public and private collections. 


Her artwork in metal is contemporary in style, often abstracted and organic in nature.  She uses mild steel, Corten steel, stainless or aluminum, and usually enriches the work with the use of bold, attractive colors.  Overall her artwork has an authenic energetic, warm and welcoming feel to it.  


She usually works around a certain theme and explores this theme throughout a series of works.  One of them is "Metamorphosis" series, where she explores the different stages of the butterfly and in particular the struggle of the butterfly to emerge out of the cocoon.  Another one is the "Migration" series and the recently explored "Botanical" series.  Her fascination for "Trees" led to her largest creation so far (16ft -20ft) at Terra Park in Johnston, IA, which is interactive and extremely well creceived by the Johnston Community.

Call for Artists!

Art Center of Burlington is excited to offer two different opportunities for artists to showcase and sell their artwork.

The Itty Bitty Bits of Art Show and Sale debuted in 2021 and proved to be a success with sixty artists participating. All pieces are 12" or less and must be for sale. The Art Center handles all sales and takes a 25% commission. There is a $15 entry fee for up to 3 pieces This is a great time for the community to get started on their holiday shopping!

The annual All Member Show is always a community favorite as this exhibit concludes the year in our Gallery. Any current Art Center Member is welcome to show up to two pieces, at least one of them has to be for sale. Pieces vary from fiber art to mixed media and everything in between.

This is always a popular show and many shop the artwork for holiday gift, most artwork is affordable and locally made.

Get the kids involved with our Gallery Scavenger Hunt!

Giving kids an appreciation for art encourages exploration, self expression, logical thinking, self-esteem, imagination, and creativity. We’ve made up a fun little scavenger hunt for your family to do together at the Art Center! Just stop by the front desk anytime for the scavenger hunt.
