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

Stevenson University
Inside Out Project

On view: September 15-December 1
Where: Dawson Center (Outside)

Inspired by internationally recognized street artist JR’s large format street “pastings,” Inside Out gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement regarding an issue important to their community. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.

The project aims to engage Stevenson University students in a collaborative public art project that explores diversity and inclusion locally within our community and globally as citizens of a diverse and ever-changing world. The public art project will be on display on the outside wall of the Greenspring campus Art Gallery throughout the fall semester.

Berlin: From Space to Place

On view: August 28, 2017-May 18, 2018
Where: St. Paul Companies Pavilion

Berlin: From Space to Place asks its audience to consider the intentional, inviting, isolating, and comforting aspects of built environments—specifically the city of Berlin, Germany.

Twenty-one students spent eight days documenting, researching, and capturing physical and expressive relationships they observed during a study abroad trip to Berlin in spring 2017. The photos featured in this exhibition explore Berlin’s built environment. The exhibition is thematically organized around relationships that exist between humans and built environments; between humans and natural environments; and between natural and built environments. Student-written exhibition captions accompany the photographs.

Ghost of the Host

On view: August 28–December 8
Where: Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

Ghost of the Host, a new exhibition of paintings by Adjunct Professor of Art Caleb Kortokrax, shows the value of slowing down and more fully experiencing the moment—materially, visually, mentally, physically, and spiritually—through the process of looking and painting. This new body of work began as a departure, which sought to make sense of, or find common ground within, divergent systems of painting. Not particularly favoring the content of the representational tradition or the disembodied material process of abstraction, Kortokrax uses the image and the physical surface of the paintings to navigate a middle way, full of more possibilities and cross-pollination.


On view: October 16-December 8
Where: School of Design Gallery

Extended media artist Thalia Scagliola examines compulsive behaviors and media consumption habits, in addition to examining cybernetic art, performance art, chance operations, and systems art in 3:33. Influenced by these movements her work focuses on obsessive tendencies, and the altered perceptions developed through repetition.

Where: Greenspring Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

All qualities are made up of vibrations. Those vibrations then dictate how we label ourselves and all we encounter–how we interact with the world. The intellect sorts our experience of those vibrations into dichotomies. But our dichotomies are not rigid: each quality inhabits a semantic field with three other components, not just one alternative. Rohini Ralby’s paintings, which consist of four panels each, depict the vibrations of each component in a given fourchotomy; for this reason, the paintings are called foursquares.

Exhibition presented in collaboration with the School of Design Our Many Ways of Being Collective.
