Stephen Towns: A Path Between Two Continents
January 22 – February 23, 2019
York College Galleries
Lecture: February 7, 2019, DeMeester Recital Hall, 5:30 PM 

Born in Charleston, South Carolina, mixed-media artist Stephen Towns is currently based in Baltimore, Maryland where his breakthrough exhibition, Rumination and a Reckoning, opened to rave reviews in March 2018 at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Towns primarily works in oil, acrylic, and fiber, drawing visual inspiration from Medieval altarpieces, Impressionist paintings and wax cloth prints. His work is rooted in his upbringing in the Deep South and responds to “issues plaguing African American culture such as loss of ancestral roots, slavery, class, education, skin tone and religion” with a desire to “create beauty from the hardships in life.”
