Adlai E Stevenson High School District 125 issued the following announcement on Nov. 6.
McHenry County multimedia artist Bert Leveille is the Stevenson Art Department’s Visiting Artist of the Month for November and December. Samples of her work will be on display in the Visiting Artist Gallery, located in the West Building. Leveille will talk about her work and her career during the Stevenson Foundation’s next ARTalks presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. The talk will take place in front of the Visiting Artist Gallery. Admission is free and the public is invited.
A passion for finding images in clouds as a child began Leveille’s lifelong art journey. Changing her major from drama to art while earning her bachelor’s degree from Elmhurst College may have derailed her acting career, but, her love of the smell of greasepaint, and stage environments were telltale signs of “alternative” world-like artwork and art installations:
- Collaborations with musicians and performers
- Dancers playing with her 3-D creatures and dancing through her 15-foot art tunnel
- Large-scale paintings
- Color-changing LED lighting
- Animation and video
Leveille has an extensive list of solo and juried group art exhibitions, and an open studio on the fourth Friday of the month at Starline in Harvard, Ill. As an exhibiting member of E-artgroup, she plays an active role in show development and guest artist selections. Leveille is a board member, on the exhibit committee and graphic designer of Chicago Women’s Caucus for Art.
