Figures & Faces

On Display March 14 through May 13, 2022

During the Spring Semester 2022, the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery at Saint Elizabeth University presented an exhibition that examines how 20th and 21st century artists have depicted the human face and figure to express anguish; joy; cultural histories, meanings and messages; traditional values and practices; realistic problems; and aims and aspirations, through various styles and materials. We invite you to explore the artistry and ideas of: Adam Gatai, Tenjin Ikeda, Glenda Jones, Louis Mendez, Mercy Moyo, Samad Onque, Suliman Onque, Yvonne Onque & Doug Weigel. This exhibit was curated by Virginia Fabbri Butera, PhD, Director with special thanks to Prof. Diana Tyson.
