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

Locked Apart & Time Zone by Gabriela Bulisova

When: Aug. 24-Nov. 12

Where: St. Paul Companies Pavilion, Greenspring Campus

Gabriela Bulisova, an award-winning, Washington, D.C.-based photographer and the Department of Art and Visual Communication Design’s fall Artist-in-Residence, will exhibit two series of photographs examining the issues surrounding mass incarceration. Locked Apart is a comprehensive, multimedia project that portrays the personal experiences of those who have a family member in prison, including their most difficult challenges, their coping mechanisms, their failures, and their triumphs. Time Zone, winner of the prestigious Sondheim Prize, portrays one women’s dramatic personal transformation, her challenging yet highly successful reentry into society, and the conflicts that remain for her and her family members.

Elisif's Story by Peter Bruun

When: Oct. 15-Dec. 15

Where: Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

An exhibition by Peter Bruun about his daughter, Elisif Janis Bruun, who died of a heroin overdose at age 24 on Feb. 11, 2014. Featuring drawings by Peter along with audio from friends, family, caring professionals, and others reflecting on Elisif’s journey, Elisif’s Story is an immersive experience of sight, sound, and lighting. The installation is at once personal and urgently public. Elisif’s Story offers an intimate and loving portrait of a charismatic soul and daughter, and a cry for more humane attitudes toward those suffering from addiction and other mental health ailments.
