Robert Ryan Exhibit is Open Until August 13 at Lewis University

Published: June 21, 2021.

Lewis University will host an art exhibition by artist Robert Ryan. The show will be on display from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily and runs through August 13 in the Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery, located on Lewis University’s main campus in Romeoville. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Current visitor guidelines are available on the gallery's Facebook page at

Born and raised in the Midwest, Ryan began his professional art career in Chicago as a pictorial billboard/sign painter in 1982 where he learned to paint with a realistic style. He then moved into his own studio in 1994 to focus on mural and canvas work, developing a love for painting the contrast of shadows and light in scenery most everyone can relate to. 

The Art Gallery is part of the Oremus Fine Arts Center at Lewis University. The Department of Art and Design manages the gallery, which includes Lewis University student shows, local and regional artist shows, annual high school exhibits, faculty shows, academic-based exhibitions and cultural and religious-based art shows. More information about the Art Gallery and exhibits is available by contacting Natalie Swain, Art Gallery coordinator, at
