Photographer David Lavine combines his love of toys with his love of nature in his playful, environmentally-sensitive photographs. The collection of work explores the possibility of our “natural” world being replaced by mechanized and plastic inhabitants born out of ecological conditions we are creating now through poor disposal habits.
In his artist statement Lavine writes:
This exhibition features the work of aerial photographer, Peter Stern. Inspired by both landscape and color, his photography is reminiscent of abstract paintings. The work presents the similarities between the landscape and textures of paint. The exhibit will run from May 9th to May 20th, with a reception on May 11th, from 6pm to 8pm.
The student curators from UMBC include Valentina Anyanwu, Maggie Frost, Nicolle Konkel, Selene LaMarca, Sheila McFarland-Holt, Nicole Rohrer, Adam Stevens, and Kelly Thompson.

This exhibition presents approximately 20 works that illustrate the honored place birds hold within numerous African cultures. Inspired by our recent acquisition of a rare Pende Gitenga mask of the early to mid-20th century, the exhibition considers the role of birds within initiation, healing, and harvest rituals; within home décor and security; and within hunting practices. Long considered wondrous beings that transcend known worlds, birds have enjoyed a strong and steady presence in African life for centuries.
Surface & Structure features work by artists Sooo-z Mastropietro and Chloe Irla. Both artists create mixed-media work that often incorporates various textile materials. Mastropietro’s artwork is made from fiber tubes, and she uses the medium to represent the way in which parts of the sum inevitably give way to the whole of bigger parts. Chloe Irla’s mixed-media paintings incorporate textile elements combined with acrylic paints and digital printing to create intricate, richly textured works.
Internationally acclaimed artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno uses iridescent panels, spider webs, and inflatable orbs in three fascinating sculptures on view. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Entangled Orbits, transforms the East Lobby with clusters of iridescent-paneled modules held in place by strings reminiscent of a spider web. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation.
Sacred Spring highlights the Viennese Secession, an influential group of artists who sought to break free from the academic art of the past. Founded in 1898, the group shared their ideas through public exhibitions and images and texts for journals, including Ver Sacrum or Sacred Spring.
