Opening Reception: Thursday, Nov. 8, 5:30–7:30pm, with a gallery talk at 6pm.
November 8 to December 7, 2018. Painter Steven Pearson, art professor and chair of the art and art history department at McDaniel College, showcases his new body of work that he created on sabbatical during the spring 2018 semester.
He said, “I explore the liminal space between painting and sculpture, and communicate my interest in the sculptural dimension of painting.”
Pearson has taught drawing and painting, color theory, printmaking and the Advanced Studio Series of courses at McDaniel since 2004. He has exhibited both regionally and nationally, and his work is in a number of public and private art collections. He was named a semi-finalist for the Janet and Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize in 2012 and a semi-finalist for the Bethesda Painting Award in 2013.
A native of Johnstown, NY, Pearson served in the United States Navy upon graduation from high school. He received a bachelor’s degree in studio art from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY, and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting at Maryland Institute College of Art. http://srpearson.com/home.html.
