UNO St. Claude Gallery hosts Artist Talk October 3rd Featuring: Jessica Goldfinch
In conjunction with her solo exhibition, “Miraculous Tales of Nonfiction,” at the UNO-St. Claude Gallery, artist and UNO alumna Jessica Goldfinch will hold a gallery talk on Saturday, October 3, at 4 p.m. In her work, the artist investigates “mortality issues through the use of Freudian concepts of the uncanny” in compositions that referencememento mori, Dutch still life, and religious imagery. With various iconography and seriousness tempered with humor and irony, the artworks address, in the artist’s words, the “paradox of mortality,” that “in order to have life, you must have death,” and result in “unexpected images of human frailty.”
The gallery is located at 2429 St. Claude Ave. Exhibit dates are September 12 to October 4, 2015. Regular gallery hours are Sat-Sun, from 12-5 p.m. Please direct any inquiries to Kathy Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the gallery during open hours at 504.948.6939.
