  • (1888PressRelease) March 21, 2013 - Attorney Jeffery Leving is known worldwide for his legal work protecting fathers' rights, from helping to reunite Elian Gonzalez with his father in Cuba to being awarded the National Lifetime Call to Service Award by President Barack Obama. Those who live in Chicago and New York know that Leving is also a gifted abstract painter and intrepid hunter of historical artifacts. This Wednesday, March 20th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Leving will exhibit three of his unique and beautiful artworks for a large and diverse group of visual art lovers at downtown Chicago's River East Art Center, the premier venue for well-established contemporary artists in Chicago.

    Leving, who is the author of three groundbreaking books, most recently, How to Be a Good Divorced Dad, which garnered praise from both President Obama and Cardinal Francis George, will exhibit three pieces at the art center: "Floating Spaces #7," "In the Reeds," and "Synergy." Josh Hoff of International Art Magazine wrote that, "If suffering is indeed permanent, obscure, and dark and shares the nature of infinity, then it can be witnessed in Chicago attorney artist Jeffery Leving's paintings." Leving's visceral, gestural expressionist pieces tap the unspoken psychological content of struggle and transcendence, combining forms and figures with primitive markings and surreal spaces, all bound together by a serene compositional economy. His paintings reflect the the spiritual struggle that men face trying find their footing in the contemporary world and to journey through the world in a way that honors their sense of self-worth as well as the needs of children to be respected and cared for.

    River East Art Center is considered the premier high-end art exhibition venue in the city of Chicago. The historical building, built in 1905 on a strip of land set aside by Chicago's first mayor, offers stunning views of the city from its vantage point on the edge of the Chicago River. The venue is the latest in a series of important gallery spaces where Leving has shown his unusual and emotionally striking work, a roster that includes high-profile galleries in both New York and Chicago.
