Elena Volkova’s Solo Exhibition at Stevenson University

Stevenson University will feature the work of Baltimore-based photographer and Stevenson Assistant Professor of Art Elena Volkova (MFAST ’07) through Oct. 6 in the Art Gallery on the University’s Greenspring Campus.

The exhibition, titled “Penumbra,” referring to the area of transition between light and shadow, is a series of photographs that explores the concept of becoming. The images are observations of ordinary, commonplace, and familiar domestic spaces inviting the viewer to examine the subtle manifestations of the everyday.

A public reception will be held Wednesday, Sept. 14, 5-7 p.m. and an art talk led by Volkova will take place on Monday, Sept. 19 at 2 p.m.
