Povos Gallery

Povos is a contemporary painting gallery with a diverse, local, emerging artist focus. 

Povos aims to act as a resource for all through carefully curated show production, free resources for emerging artists, and direct-to-community projects centered around the arts and education. Founded in 2020 by Chicago artist and art educator Lucca Colombelli, 2022 was the gallery’s first year of full programming. Povos finished the year at 2000 N. Milwaukee and is excited to join the historic West Town gallery district in March 2023.

The gallery has already caught the eye of the local art world, notably for its approachable, unpretentious program and events. We maintain high aspirations for the future including national art fairs, major local exhibitions, and residencies organized through our platform.
