Free Art Exhibition of Tierra Fértil at Lewis University

Published: September 29, 2020.

The art exhibition “Tierra Fértil: Cross Pollination Narratives and Patterns” by artists Denise Bellezzo and David Bower is on display until October 23 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 from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. Please note that face coverings and social distancing will be required in the gallery.

Denise Bellezzo and David Bower participated in artist residencies at Arquetopia in Puebla, Mexico (2016, 2017, 2019). While there, they explored the visual relationships of the two cultures and what that might yield in their individual art practice. At the end of the 2019 Residency, they each created a body of personal work and shared an exhibition called Tierra Fértil.   

A Gallery Talk with the artists will take place in a virtual format from 7- 8 p.m. October 15. Visit for more information.

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.
