By Arianna Alvarez

The Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery opened in February 2013. The Department of Art and Design anticipates that the gallery will support programming including, but not limited to: Lewis University student shows, local and regional artists shows, an annual high school show, faculty shows, academic based exhibitions, and cultural and religious based art shows. Collaborations with music and other academic departments will also be a part of the gallery programming. We are extremely excited for this opportunity and hope you take advantage of this unique experience.

Feel free to contact the Gallery Coordinator, Natalie Swain, with any questions:

All events are free and open to the public. Dates are subject to change.

Schedule for 2014


Solo Art Exhibition by Denise Bellezzo

Denise Bellezzo’s work involves a response to organic matter through observational drawing and abstraction. Her aesthetic sensibilities are centered on producing lively biomorphic shapes that promote a sense of power, vitality, and strength. Marks are made both spontaneously and specifically in order to record the complex systems found in the organic world. Layering of imagery, fantastical rhythms, juxtaposition of lines and patterns, erasures, bold color are all ways to allow the life force of drawing to create its own spatial plane.
