Art Exhibitions

Stevenson University’s Exhibitions Program is dedicated to advancing knowledge and fostering understanding in the visual arts through a wide and varied series of exhibitions and educational programs. Stevenson's three museum-quality gallery spaces, including the Art Gallery and St. Paul Companies Pavilion on the Greenspring Campus, and the School of Design Gallery on the Owings Mills North Campus, provide significant venues for artists and art patrons in the region and offers opportunities for students, artists, and the community to see established and emerging talents, learn through gallery talks and lectures, and celebrate the arts at music-filled receptions. Admission to the galleries is free and open to all.

Current Exhibitions

SU20: Selections from the Stevenson University Permanent Art Collection

On view: Aug. 22, 2016-June 2, 2017

Where: St. Paul Companies Pavilion, Greenspring Campus

The visual arts at Stevenson are vital to the University and help to inspire and promote an engaged culture of creativity, innovation, and respect. Begun in 1997, after the construction of the Art Gallery on the Greenspring Campus, the Stevenson University Exhibitions Program has hosted more than 175 exhibitions and grown to include four museum-quality gallery spaces across two campuses during the past two decades. In celebration of this 20th anniversary, Stevenson will showcase a variety of works from the University’s permanent art collection.

My Father’s House

On View: January 9–February 23

Where: Greenspring Art Gallery

Award-winning writer Jen Grow partnered with photographer Craig Lammes to create My Father’s House, a multimedia project that explores loss, identity, and perception. A series of haunting images in My Father’s House, are paired with insightful passages from Grow’s personal essay of the same name. Grow worked with Lammes to tie her words and his images together by creating mixed media backgrounds using watercolor, ink, acrylic, and encaustic painting that recall the devastating beauty of Grow’s father’s actual home after his death. The juxtaposition of words and images illuminates the emotional depth and negative space of the subject in ways that neither form can fully express separately.

Beauty, etc.: An Investigation of Identity and Its Relationships to Beauty

On View: January 23–March 3

Where: Manning Academic Center Gallery

Upcoming Exhibitions

Spirit Bridge Torn

On View: March 8–April 20

Where: Greenspring Art Gallery

Gina Falcone Skelton introduces an exhibition of new work created in 2014 – 15. The process that began as collage led to a new medium for the painter whose previous works are oil on canvas. As literal content was weeded out of her imagery, so were the visible signs of assemblage. She stopped thinking of new pieces as collage because, she says, “I had stumbled back into painting. The only difference was trading oil paint and brushes for paper torn with my hands.”

Natural Designs

On View: March 20–May 26

Where: Manning Academic Center Gallery

Ellen Hill was born in 1960 and grew up in Rocky Hill, New Jersey and Athens, Georgia. She spent much of her childhood exploring the surrounding forests and fields of north Georgia. Her elegant abstractions in birch and paint reflect her strong respect for nature.
