ARtwork by Brian GillisGillis is assistant professor of Visual Art at UIS. His mixed media work explores the possibility that relationships between objects can call forth or imply a story that may be overlooked and/or lie just below the surface. "I want to elicit a dialog about the nature of the way we are taught to see and effectively perceive the world around us," he notes.

The Visual Arts Gallery is located in room 201 of the Health and Sciences Building on the UIS campus. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. (Please note: The gallery will be closed the week of March 12 while UIS students are on Spring Break.)
