Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center
Featuring twenty-three works from the 1960s to present, this small-scale retrospective exhibition presents works from significant junctures in May Stevens’ career. Stevens has been involved in the benchmark social justice movements of the 20th and 21st centuries and has created art that protests wars, stands up for civil rights, promotes feminism, and decries child abuse. Now in her eighties, Stevens continues to defy expectations by creating monumental landscape paintings that subtly, yet powerfully, connect her personal experience of loss to larger social and philosophical questions. By bringing together artworks from throughout the artist’s historic career, Crossing Time acknowledges Stevens’ position as an artist of enduring social and aesthetic relevance.
