    Beyond the Medium: A Multidisciplinary School of Design Faculty Exhibition

    Recent work by faculty in the School of Design featuring design, film, photography, painting, and other mediums.

    Stevenson University
    Inside Out Project

    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.

    Led by Assistant Professor Christopher Metzger, the project engaged 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 is on display on the outside wall of the Greenspring Campus Art Gallery.


    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.

    Print Out

    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.

    Certain Risk by Andrew Snyder

    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

    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.

    My Father's House 

    Award-winning writer Jen Grow partnered with photographer Craig Lammes to create My Father’s House, a multimedia project that explores loss, identity, and perception. A series of haunting images in My Father’s House, are paired with insightful passages from Grow’s personal essay of the same name. Grow worked with Lammes to tie her words and his images together by creating mixed media backgrounds using watercolor, ink, acrylic, and encaustic painting that recall the devastating beauty of Grow’s father’s actual home after his death. The juxtaposition of words and images illuminates the emotional depth and negative space of the subject in ways that neither form can fully express separately.

    Beauty, etc.: An Investigation of Identity and Its Relationships to Beauty

    Stevenson University presents a juried student photography and film/video exhibition that explores interpretations of beauty and the human form. Organized by the Our Many Ways of Being Collective.

    Spirit Bridge Torn

    Gina Falcone Skelton introduces an exhibition of new work created in 2014 – 15. The process that began as collage led to a new medium for the painter whose previous works are oil on canvas. As literal content was weeded out of her imagery, so were the visible signs of assemblage. She stopped thinking of new pieces as collage because, she says, “I had stumbled back into painting. The only difference was trading oil paint and brushes for paper torn with my hands.”

    Film and Moving Image Coming Attractions

    Original movie posters designed by graduating film and moving Image students will be on display in anticipation of the annual Film and Moving Image Senior Showcase.

    Victory for a Dime: The Fighting Comic Books of the Second World War

    The comic book industry reached dizzying heights during the Second World War, when comics became an integral part in America's propaganda war and forever cemented a place in American popular culture. This unprecedented exhibition, featuring more than 30 poster-size covers, offers a look at the moment when a bunch of talented dreamers, most of them Jewish kids in New York, created iconic characters who battled it out with the Axis while the fate of the world hung in the balance. Event presented in partnership with SHAG: Society for History and Graphics.


    Shadowlands is a stunning new series of maps by geographer and data scientist Robbi Bishop-Taylor. The maps show the topography of the continental United States, Canada, Australia, South America, and Europe as mapped by sunset shadows—the shadows cast by hills and mountains just before sunset on a summer solstice. It’s an eerie and surprisingly beautiful way of looking at the world.

    To make the maps, Bishop-Taylor drew on a high-resolution digital elevation model produced by NASA’s Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, which contains data on the height of every 30x30-meter pixel of land across the entire planet. He then added simulated sunlight, using a sun angle just 1.5 degrees above the horizon to cast long shadows, and mapped everything out using ArcGIS.

    Ghost of the Host

    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.


    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.

    Subliminality by Sue Johnson

    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. 

    Shade Gap by Steven Riddle

    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.  

    Devin Allen

    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.

    Adam’s Crayons: A Tale of a Few Stories

    Barry Nemett and Laini Nemett

    The story behind this exhibit starts with a children’s book, Adam’s Crayons (Galileo Press), written by Niki Leopold and illustrated by Laini and Barry Nemett. The book, scheduled for release in March, is almost thirty years in the making. In 1983, Barry had a painting exhibition featuring gatherings of animals—“peaceable kingdoms”—at C. Grimaldis Gallery in Baltimore. Inspired by Adam, the artist’s then two-year-old son, the exhibit, in turn, inspired the author.

    Leopold approached Barry and his daughter, Laini, to illustrate what she wrote. This exhibition—which includes all the images from the book, as well as related examples of the collaborating artists’ drawings and paintings—tells the tale of these stories.

    Artist and educator Barry Nemett has exhibited his work and lectured worldwide. He has been on faculty of the Maryland Institute College of Art since 1971 and has served as Chair of the Painting Department since 1992.  After receiving her degree from Brown University, Laini Nemett, received a Fulbright Scholarship and studied in Spain.  She is currently working toward her MFA at the Hoffberger School of Painting.

Her work probes the recesses of the psychological and the physical and always explores our sense of self… Notions of identity, consciousness, humanity, existence and meaning are the keys to her ongoing search for knowledge.” Stevenson University invited Nefelli Massia to create this exhibition to honor the memory and is dedicated to our colleague and friend the late Dr. Susan P. Slattery, Chair of the Department of Mathematics.

    Particles All  

    “Quantum mechanics views subatomic particles as tendencies to exist. How strong these tendencies are is expressed in terms of probabilities. A subatomic particle is a quantum, which means quantity of something. What that something is, is a matter of speculation. --Gary Zakav, Dancing Wu Li Masters

    The work of Peggy Fox echo poetry and myth and merges narrative, surrealism and abstraction Fox offers a way of looking at photography and photography-related image making and its evolution.  Fox attempts to examine visually what can only be explained mathematically or poetically. Her images come from the thought of the dance of the particles in all their differences. The exhibition will include painted silver gelatin prints, mixed media and photographs; a visual villanelle*, a poetry form that she uses as a formal device for repeating and patterning and combining images.

    *A villanelle is a nineteen line poem with two repeating rhymes and two refrains.  The form is made up of five tercets and a quatrain.  The first and third lines are repeated alternately in the last lines of the succeeding stanzas.  Then, in the final stanza, the refrain the poem’s concluding lines.

    August Sander People of the 20th Century: Portraits of German Citizens 1910-1940  

    August Sander (1896-1964) was the most significant of German photographers in the first half of the 20th century.  From 1910 until 1934, his ambitious portrait series was intended to make viewers aware of the social and cultural dimensions and the stratifications of real life. His work was very popular with artists and writers of his era. Regretfully, Sander’s work did not fit into the political climate of Germany before World War II.  Although not politically involved, he abandoned his portrait project and turned his attention to landscape photography. This exhibition appears courtesy of the Kathleen Ewing Gallery of Washington, DC and the estate of August Sander at the August Sander Archive, Cologne, Germany.
