George Steele: Layers


Visual Arts
George Steele: Layers
Through November 6
Baltimore County Arts Guild

George Steele (1903 – 1978) was a Yale educated architect and fine artist. Layers presents a collection of abstract paintings that exemplify his recurring techniques to build up a surface, no matter the medium. He integrated collage, photos, text and graphics within his abstract compositions.

A true renaissance man, Steele spent his life traveling, collecting inspiration from England and France to incorporate into his work. His grandson-in-law, Alan Sherman, professor of computer science at UMBC, brought Steele’s work to the attention of the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture.

The exhibition also features artwork from Arbutus Middle School made in response to Steele’s art.

The exhibition is organized by the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture and curated by CADVC intern Victoria Schanken ’18, visual arts.

Free and open to the public.
