The Seton Art Gallery, located in Dodds Hall, hosts a number of exhibitions every year that may feature the work of students and faculty, as well as emerging artists outside of the university community.

For its first exhibition of the fall 2012 semester, the Seton Art Gallery brought the work of Lourdes Correa-Carlo to campus for the exhibit Inverted Structures.

Through a variety of solo exhibitions, group shows and public projects, the gallery strives to “reflect the University’s strategic plan of encouraging diversity and promoting interdisciplinary practices”.

For its first exhibition of the fall 2012 semester, the Seton Art Gallery brought the work of Lourdes Correa-Carlo to campus for the exhibit Inverted Structures. Correa-Carlos received her M.F.A. from the Yale University School of Art in New Haven, Conn., and her B.F.A. from Escuela de Artes Plasticas in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She recently returned to Connecticut from the Core Residency Program at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.

A large portion of Correa-Carlo’s work includes photographing architecture. She began this in 2009 with her main work, “The Inverted Structure”, which the exhibit as a whole acquired its title from. The titular piece and one of the several pieces found in the exhibit, is a large inkjet print on wood that stands 8 feet tall and 15.5 feet wide. Other pieces include spray paint on drywall, an untitled model of a rooftop, and an inkjet print of a window, set in the gallery next to an actual window.

The exhibit opened with a reception that was held Thursday, Sept. 6 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Students, faculty, staff and members of the community had the opportunity to hear some remarks from Lourder Correa-Carlo, introduced by Laura Marsh, the new director of the Seton Art Gallery.

The exhibit will be on display until Thursday, Sept. 27. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Many of the works in Inverted Structures are not easy to explain on paper, so be sure to stop by the gallery before the end of the month.
