The Archbishop John C. Favalora Archive & Museum at St. Thomas University (STU) presents Archetypes: The Imprints of the Human Mind, a collection of paintings by Marilyn Valiente and sculptures by her spouse, David Valiente.
The art pieces are created on the theory of renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl G. Jung regarding archetypes, dreams and myth reflections, and expressions which explore the people’s perceptions thought history and throughout every culture.
The exhibition, which can be viewed at the Rev. Jorge A. Sardiñas Gallery, located on the second floor of St. Thomas University’s Main Library, will be open until Sept. 16, 2022. Call or check first for library opening and closing times.
Psychotherapist and visual artist Marilyn Valiente received her Master of Mental Health Counseling degree from St. Thomas University in 1989. This will be her second time exhibiting her work at STU.
“Art making, for me, is a healing inner process. It is intuitive and spontaneous,” said Marilyn. “I seek to open the locked door of the unconscious through a play of lines, marks and colors.”
David S. Valiente is a prominent psychologist and sculptor who received his Master of Science in Marriage & Family Therapy degree from STU in 1989. This will be his first time exhibiting at his alma mater.
“I am a psychologist/sculptor who has integrated my psychology background with the themes of my sculptures,” said David.
Both artists have extensively showcased their works of art in the United States and abroad.
