Gallery Exhibition Features Conneticut Artists

The Seton Gallery will present “Constructed Ecology,” an exhibition that aims to enhance the viewer’s spatial perception using light, sound, video and texture. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 5 to 9 p.m. The exhibition will be on display from Sept. 19 to Oct. 26.

The display features work by Connecticut artists Michael Galvin and Kyle Skar.

“The installation encourages one to challenge their perception of curated and regulated spaces from that of nature and the wilderness,” said Laura Marsh, director of the Seton Gallery. The interdisciplinary project combines architecture, sculpture, digital media and natural forms.

Galvin and Skar will be artists-in-residence at the Seton Gallery, working for one month to customize the space for the large-scale project. The artists have invited two local collaborators, Lisa Amadeo and Nicki Chavoya, to develop and project video content. Artist Gary Velush will customize an auditory piece in the exhibit as well.

“This interdisciplinary exhibition will produce a variety of sensory experiences,” Marsh said. “The exhibit aims to challenge the traditional views of exhibition space.”

The Seton Art Gallery is open Monday through Wednesday, noon to 6 p.m.; Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
