Beginning in September, the University of New Orleans–St. Claude Gallery will present "Miraculous Tales of Nonfiction," a solo exhibition from UNO alumna Jessica Goldfinch. The gallery will hold an opening reception on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 6-9 p.m., and the exhibition will run through Oct. 6, 2015.

According to Goldfinch, this exhibition addresses the "paradox of mortality." The result, according to the artist, is "unexpected images of human frailty."

"In order to have life, you must have death," she said in describing this collection.

The gallery, located at 2429 St. Claude Ave., is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 p.m. and by appointment.
