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.

Upcoming 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.

SU20: Selections from the Stevenson University Permanent Art Collection

Reception: Thursday, Oct. 20, 5:30-7:30pm.

On view: Aug. 22-Nov. 18

Where: Academic Center, Owings Mills North Campus

The state-of-the-art Academic Center on the Owings Mills North Campus, opened in summer 2016, is Stevenson’s largest academic building and provides resources for the School of the Sciences and the School of Health Professions as well as additional space for the School of Design. Located on the second floor, the Exhibition Hall becomes the University’s fourth gallery space and will display works from Stevenson’s permanent art collection in conjunction with the 20th anniversary celebration.

Penumbra by Elena Volkova

Reception: Wednesday, Sept. 14, 5-7 p.m.

On view: Aug. 22-Oct. 6

Where: Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

Penumbra, referring to the area of transition between light and shadow, is a series of photographs by Elena Volkova that explores the concept of becoming. The images—observations of the ordinary, commonplace, and familiar domestic spaces—invite the viewer to examine the subtle manifestations of the Everyday.

Print Out

On view: Aug. 22-Oct. 27, 2016

Where: School of Design Gallery, Owings Mills North Campus

Print Out features a compilation of publications, zines, and related ephemera produced in multiple by more than 20 artists and designers from Baltimore and beyond. Curated by Matt Laumann, Stevenson University’s Cultural Programs Manager, the exhibition examines the concept of multiples and explores the underlying technology used to produce each edition. Unlike commercial offset printing, which is costly and meant to reproduce thousands of copies, the work exhibited in Print Out utilize relatively simple technologies, including conventional photocopiers, scanners, laser printers, inkjet printers, and Risographs, among others, to produce artists’ editions as limited as 10.

Certain Risk by Andrew Snyder

Reception: Wednesday, Oct. 26, 6-8 p.m.

On View: Oct. 17-Dec. 15

Where: Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

A Maryland-based ceramicist, Andrew Snyder asks, “How can we use clay in a way that comments on contemporary issues?” He believes that as time goes on, tradition must continue to find ways of integrating with contemporary ideas in order to not be left by the wayside. Inherently, there is an indefinable quality born from objects that human hands have touched while being created. Snyder’s goal is to investigate new methods while using traditional materials and creatively think about the process, which he loves.

Locally Made

On View: Nov. 7-Jan. 12

Where: School of Design Gallery, Owings Mills North Campus

Locally Made celebrates the rich and diverse talents found in Baltimore and the surrounding region. The exhibition features a curated selection of well-crafted and designed goods, including prints, objects, furniture, and more.

Rhythm & Style: Stevenson University’s Annual Fashion Design Exhibition

Reception: Thursday, Dec. 1, 6-8 p.m.

On View: Dec. 1-20

Where: Academic Center, Owings Mills North Campus

Stevenson’s fashion merchandising program majors will create the storyboards for the exhibit, telling the story of each designer’s influences. Students from the textiles and fashion careers program at the Carroll County Career and Technology Center will collaborate with Stevenson’s students to create displays for the high fashion garments.
