Gift of the Artist

Jim Condron, M.F.A., Adjunct Professor in Visual Communication Design, has been recognized in The Baltimore Sun and Art Daily for receiving a $30,000 grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. The foundation is named after the famous abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock and his wife, Lee Krasner, who was also a painter. Formed in 1985, the foundation was created to provide financial assistance to established artists.

“I’m extremely grateful to the foundation and legacy of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner,” says Condron, who has taught at Stevenson since 2008. “The grant provides me with needed time and space to expand on my work in every direction.”

Condron is one of many artists whose works are being featured in “SU20: Selections from the Stevenson University Permanent Art Collection,” a celebration of 20 years of art exhibitions on view through June 2 in the St. Paul Companies Pavilion. Learn more about the arts at Stevenson at

Quintessential Wilde

Adjunct Professor in English Ariana Mashilker, Ph.D., wrote a chapter titled “Reclaiming the Fisherman: Soul Searching and the Subversive in Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Tales” in the recently published Quintessential Wilde: His Worldly Place, His Penetrating Philosophy, and His Influential Aestheticism. An Anglo-Irish literature and drama scholar, Mashilker was invited by the editor to collaborate on the commemorative text, which marked the 160th anniversary of Wilde’s birth.

“After many years writing and lecturing as a Joycean scholar, it was a new experience to publish on Oscar Wilde,” says Mashilker. “The uniqueness of this particular publication, in relation to my general research, might suggest [to students] the benefits and rewards of stepping beyond your comfort zone and trying your hand at something new and familiar. I always try to instill in my students a belief they can accomplish anything to which they set their mind—after all, the only thing holding us back is our own hesitation.”

Mashilker adds that she is honored to have her work shared among such a distinguished collection of Wildean scholars. She has been teaching at Stevenson University since 2014.
