The summer exhibit for the Lewis University Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery “The Lewis University Permanent Art Collection” is on display through Aug. 14. The free exhibit is open to the public and will be on display from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily on Lewis University’s main campus in Romeoville.

The exhibit is the inception of a permanent collection. There are plans to add to the current 19 works of art in future years. The current collection was made possible through generous donations from friends of the university, and it is eclectic in nature. It features an assortment of paintings and drawings ranging from a 17th century portrait to a 19th century ball scene. Artists vary from Wilhelm Schreuer to British artist Donald Hamilton Fraser.

The Art Gallery is part of the Oremus Fine Arts Center at Lewis University. The Department of Art and Design manages the gallery events, which include 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 is available about the Art Gallery and exhibits by contacting Natalie Swain, Art Gallery coordinator, at swainna@lewisu.edu.
