PORTRAITURE: INSIDE OUT

February 28 – April 1, 2011

Opening Reception, Thursday, March 3 5pm to 9pm

The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University presents Portraiture: Inside Out, an exhibition of contemporary portraiture co-curated by Museum Professions Graduate Candidates Ruth Ballester, Whitney Fehl, and Lauren Thompson. Artist Ryan Roa will present stage a public intervention throughout the opening and documentation of the event will be on view for the remainder of the exhibition. All gallery events are free and open to the public. A full color exhibition catalogue will be available at the gallery. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10:30am to 4:30pm.

Portraiture: Inside Out examines public expressions of private identity through the display of multi-media works including performance and installation, pushing the limits of portraiture beyond traditional representations of the human form. Featured artists include Sarah Bliss, Dominic Guarnaschelli, Gwen Hardie, Jenny Hyde, Pat Lay, Greg Leshé, So Yoon Lym, Ryan Roa, Steve Rossi, Jesse Eric Schmidt, Travis LeRoy Southworth, Tonja Torgerson, Peter Whittenberger, Christine Wong Yap and Raphael Zollinger. The curators selected artists “for their progressive approach to a traditional art genre.”

For 150 years, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student, mind, heart and spirit. Seton Hall combines the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small liberal arts college. Its attractive suburban campus is only 14 miles by train, bus or car to New York City, with the wealth of employment, internship, cultural and entertainment opportunities the city offers. Seton Hall is a Catholic university that embraces students of all races and religions, challenging each other to better the world with integrity, compassion and a commitment to serving others.

Librarians Win Prestigious Google Grant

Beth Bloom, Marta Deyrup, and Paul Fisher have been awarded a prestigious Google research grant of $15,000 to track undergraduate students’ information-seeking behavior at Seton Hall University. This builds on an earlier CDI grant that Bloom and Deyrup received from the TLTC last year. In the CDI grant the librarians used Open Hallway, an online-behavior recording tool, to examine what kinds of strategies students use while doing online research and the effect librarian intervention has on their students’ success in finding quality information. The Google grant allows the library to study a much larger population over a much longer period of time. The librarians hope that the knowledge they gain from this study will enhance the library’s Information Literacy program. Currently the librarians instruct more than 4000 students each year and are constantly expanding and developing this program to reflect changing trends in technology. For more information about the library’s Information Literacy program, please contact Beth Bloom at (973) 761-9000 ext.2035 and Marta Deyrup at (973) 761-9000 ext. 2223.
