The Visiting Artist Program connects Stevenson students to professional visual artists through gallery exhibits and artist presentations (ARTalks). Created over 20 years ago by Stevenson emeritus faculty member, John DePinto, the Visiting Artist Program aims to feature a range of diverse artists, styles and mediums throughout the school year, providing our students with opportunities to interact with and learn from professional art and artists.
Annually, six artists are selected for the program. Local artists exhibit for 6-7 weeks in Stevenson’s Visiting Artist Gallery. During the course of their exhibition, each artist visits two visual arts classrooms for an ARTalk to discuss their work, concepts and process. The Visiting Artist Program and ARTalks are presented in partnership with the Stevenson Foundation.
Currently Featuring Lilach Schrag
Stevenson is proud to feature Tiffany Gholar in the 2022-2023 Visiting Artist Series.
Gholar’s exhibit, Post Consumerism, features artworks created using otherwise disposable, one-time-use material imbued with a new sense of permanence and purpose through artmaking. Post Consumerism will be exhibited in the Visiting Artist Gallery (first floor rotunda, west building) through April 14th.
Gholar is a lifelong resident of Chicago, Illinois. She studied art as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and interior design at Harrington College of Design and has a Masters Degree in Painting from Governors State University.
Her work has been exhibited in several Chicago area venues, including solo exhibitions at The Harold Washington Library, The Adler School of Professional Psychology, and the University of Illinois at Chicago, as well as in group shows at The Chicago Children’s Museum and The Chicago Center for Green Technology. When she is not painting, she works as a freelance interior designer. She is also a Jeopardy! Champion.
