Circle-Centric: Painting in Circles Exhibition on Display at Stevenson Art Gallery Through December 18

October 14, 2014 7 AM

Stevenson University will showcase the artwork of internationally-featured painter Kevin Labadie in “Painting in Circles,” an exhibition on display October 20 through December 18 at the Art Gallery, located on the University’s Greenspring campus, 1525 Greenspring Valley Road, Stevenson, MD 21153.

A public reception for “Painting in Circles” will be held Thursday, October 30 6-8 p.m., and Labadie will host an art talk on Wednesday, November 12 beginning at 5 p.m. Both events are free and the community is invited to attend.

“In these works I approach the circle as an elemental body afloat on a surface. The circumference of each circle is the orbit of its skin,” Labadie said. “When two or more circles touch or brush together, however slightly, there is a transference of charges at the point of impact. It is this electric chemistry that attracts my attention.”
