Mexican sculptures on view at Fairfield University's Lukacs Gallery

Image: Gustavo Perez "Seven Worlds," an exhibit of small clay sculptures by contemporary Mexican artists, will be on exhibit from Thursday, Oct. 13, through Tuesday, Nov. 1, at the Lukacs Gallery at Fairfield University. The gallery, located on the ground floor of Loyola Hall, will host an opening and lecture with curator/art historian Graciela Kartoffel between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Eight artists from the Mexican state of Veracruz will be featured in the exhibit. Many prominent Mexican ceramists have come together on the outskirts of the cities of Xalapa and Veracruz, setting up workshops in isolated areas filled with natural inspiration.

Image: Gustavo Perez The featured artists give a privileged place to the "seven worlds," including the seven days of the week, the seven days of Biblical creation and the seven musical notes. Their art can also be divided into seven worlds: Sculpture, utilitarian items, miniatures, installations, relief, collaborative works and objects.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday from Friday, Oct. 14, through Tuesday, Nov 1.
