Regina Corritore
Adjunct Faculty
Printmaking, 2D Design, Drawing, Painting and Watercolor


Regina Araujo Corritore has more than twenty years of making art and exhibiting professionally. Born and raised in New York City, she has had a strong early passion for making and viewing art. By high school, she was roaming the halls of the Met, Modern, Whitney and Guggenheim. She learned much about art not only from the museums, but also from the raw, primitive, folk qualities of the art of the city streets, where she lived awash with the colors of cultures. She received her B.F.A. in 1980 in Advertising Design from the New York Institute of Technology. Fascinated with monoprint and intaglio techniques of printmaking, she produced a series of over 100 prints, while working with master printer Roni Henning for museums, galleries and publishers as well as individual artists. Then Regina received her M.A. in 1984 in Fine Art Printmaking from the University of New Mexico.

After 1984, Regina went on to exhibit in New York City galleries and museums. While living and working in Soho, New York, she became interested in experimental and radical art as well as feminist art. At this time, she also became involved in multicultural art organizations, such as Vistas Latinas and Coast to Coast: Women Artists of Color, and began curating and organizing exhibitions.

Since the 1990s, Regina has been working and showing in New Mexico. Some of her most recent exhibitions include showing her work in an important survey show of New Mexico artists at the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, at the Hispanic Arts and Fine Arts exhibits at the New Mexico State Fair, and at the Albuquerque Museum. Since her return to New Mexico, she has been represented by galleries in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Madrid, and Ruidoso. Regina has taught art classes for UNM-Valencia since 2000. She especially enjoys teaching at Valencia campus because it allows her the ability to interact and learn from students from a wide range of cultures, languages, ages, and backgrounds.
