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

Lookout by Lynn Silverman

Reception: Thursday, Feb. 4, 6-8 p.m. 

On View: Jan. 11–March 3

Where: Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

The windows depicted in Lookout were photographed in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, and the Czech Republic, countries where Lynn Silverman lived for an extended period of time. Numbering more than 100 images, this series is a collection of observations into how we live in proximity to other people and nature, and how we strike a balance between the desire for contact, concern for security, and our need for privacy.

Subliminality by Sue Johnson

Reception: Thursday, Feb. 18, 5:30-7 p.m. 

On View: Jan. 25–March 9

Where: School of Design Gallery, Owings Mills North Campus

Subliminality brings together two series of wallpapers designed by Sue Johnson that have a message. Once installed in a domestic setting, these wallpapers create rooms for contemplation through the display of rare and usual objects from ancient civilizations or the use of everyday objects forming rebus puzzles that spell messages of concern for the environment. 

Dieci Cittá (Ten Cities)

Reception: Thursday, Feb. 25, 6-8 p.m.

On View: Jan. 25–May 27

Where: St. Paul Companies Pavilion, Greenspring Campus

The School of Design hosted a study abroad trip in spring 2015 to 10 Italian cities in 10 days. Each of the 32 photography students focused on a particular project of interest, photographing the people, cities, and architecture. Their awe of the history and culture shows in the images in this exhibition.

Upcoming Exhibitions

Devin Allen

On View: March 21–April 28

Where: School of Design Gallery, Owings Mills North Campus

Devin Allen is a photographer from Baltimore whose Instagram photos of the city’s unrest went viral last spring and caught the attention of several news outlets, including CNN, the BBC, and The New York Times. One of his images even landed on the cover of Time, becoming just the third time the magazine has used amateur images on the cover. Now, Allen’s work is being solicited from all around the globe and has been exhibited in museums in Baltimore; Washington, D.C.; and New York. 

Shade Gap by Steven Riddle

Reception: Wednesday, March 30, 6-8 p.m. 

On View: March 14–April 21

Where: Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

The cyanotype (or blueprint), created in the 1840s and used by architects and later photographers, is one of the earliest non-camera photographic processes. Cyanotype images are developed with the aid of the sun rather than artificial light. In Steven Riddle’s hands, the cyanotype is used to produce work that is imbued with images that represent his artistic process. The variation from one panel to the next is a result of the unpredictability of the environment in which the work is made; in this case, it was a cabin in central Pennsylvania. Shade Gap is a nearby village.  

Film and Moving Image Coming Attractions

Reception: Thursday, May 5, 5-7 p.m. 

On View: May 4–June 2

Where: School of Design Gallery, Owings Mills North Campus
