"ArtBrazil": As much a celebration of Brazil's Independence Day as it is of South Florida's Brazilian-born artists, the exhibition at ArtServe, closing Tuesday, features photography, paintings, sculptures and fashion. Highlighted here are 20 artists, including Alice Kohler's "People of the Forest/Amazon, Brazil" photo series, which captures the Amazon's indigenous Yawalapiti and Kayapo tribes. In Carla McCarthy's installation "Cougar Vintage," she pairs the photography of Jade Matarazzo with 1960 retro clothing inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis.
