The Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery is part of the School of Fine and Performing Arts (SFPA) at Columbia College Chicago. The gallery's mission is to present professional exhibitions and educational programming that encompasses the broadest possible definition of visual art and design. This is a direct reflection of the pedagogical diversity of the visual studies within SFPA and the vast array of ideas, media, and techniques explored by artists today. The gallery presents emerging and established artists whose work reflects any of the disciplines taught in the School including Art & Art History, Design, Fashion, and Photography.
The gallery's primary focus is on process and the development of ideas into art. Exhibitions at the Leviton Gallery promote understanding of the artistic process by exhibiting works in progress side-by-side with finished pieces; these can be preliminary drafts and sketches, notes and other generative materials an artist may use to process ideas into finished artwork.
The exhibition schedule at Leviton Gallery is determined by a curatorial review committee comprised of faculty and staff at Columbia College Chicago. If you are interested in sponsoring, organizing or curating an exhibition at the gallery please submit a detailed proposal of the exhibition indicating the premise of the show and how it fits into our mission. Proposal guidelines are available upon request. Submit all materials to gallery Director:
