The gallery space, guided by its mission, is first and foremost an art gallery for the purpose of showing both professional and student art exhibits. This space should be respected for its original intended purpose, but also welcomes collaboration by frequently hosting educational and professional events such as presentations, readings, meetings, receptions, small concerts and classes.
The Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery fosters opportunities for patrons to experience original works of visual art created by national, regional, and local artists, including members of the Lewis University community. Exhibitions and other programming will promote aesthetic understanding consistent with the mission of Lewis University. It welcomes collaborative and interdisciplinary programming that will encourage patronage and which will enhance its reputation. Its primary mission is education but it will also provide additional initiatives in alignment with other well-respected university art galleries.
Usage and availability must be arranged by contacting Natalie Swain, Gallery Coordinator and Lisa Salazar, Senior Event Coordinator. Those requesting use of the gallery will be required to fill out an Internal Event Request Form through the office of Meetings, Events, and Conferences.
