Since its 1997 inaugural season, the Stevenson University Art Gallery has presented a dynamic series of substantive exhibitions in diverse media and has achieved the reputation as a significant venue for regional artists and collectors. The museum quality space was designed to support the Baltimore arts community, provide greater opportunities for artists, and be integral to the educational experience of Stevenson students. Our Exhibitions Program offers a series of seven shows per year in a variety of media including paintings, prints, sculpture and photography.

Each exhibition is celebrated with a gallery reception in the evening that will include live music in the theatre lobby and free refreshments. Lectures, panel discussions, and gallery talks will complement each exhibit. Gallery events are free and open to all. In addition, faculty and student art work in progress is on display at various times in the Art Wing Studio Gallery, the Student-Faculty Exchange, and in various other areas around campus. Finally, artwork from local creators is also featured throughout the year in the St. Paul Companies Pavilion.

The Development of a Typeface chronicles the creation of Balto, Baltimore-based typographer Tal Leming’s reinterpretation of an American Gothic style typeface that emphasizes the base ideas of the style rather than particular visual attributes, quirks, or artifacts of bygone type technologies. To Leming, type design is a problem solving exercise. He is constantly challenging himself to create new typefaces that do something better than other typefaces. Leming has produced a collection of distinctive typefaces, which have been used by a variety of clients including Paramount Pictures, Reebok, and Target.

Help-Portrait is a community of photographers around the world that use their photography skills to give back to their local communities. Each December, Baltimore-area photographers and Stevenson students grab their cameras and photograph those in need who wouldn’t normally have access to professional photography. The pictures are printed and given free of charge. Often these images are the only pictures a person has had in decades or that a family may have together. The exhibition showcases a selection of the portraits from past years, demonstrating the Help-Portrait’s motto, “A picture is worth.”
