The Indelible Imprints of Humanity on Exhibit at Lewis University

Published: February 7, 2018.

The art exhibition "Humanity” by artist Jelena Berenc is available until March 16 at Lewis University in Romeoville. The exhibit portrays indelible imprints of the individual and of humanity. It will be on display from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily 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.

A reception and Gallery Talk will take place from 7-9 p.m. on February 15 in the gallery. This event is also free and open to the public.

Berenc’s drawings use excessive repetition of minuscule drawing elements to create larger works of art encompassing an overarching idea or fact. The most fundamental materials are used, like pencil on paper, so that the focus can center on the idea and its execution process.

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
