Maryland Hall announces its first all-video exhibition and art-based collaboration with Annapolis Film Festival, Glistening: Nature Mirrored in Video Art.
Glimmers in the vastness of outer space, tide side shadows, sun drenched forests at dawn, and shifts prompted by seasonal cycles are among the inspirations for this selection of new media artworks from the collection of Tom and Kitty Stoner.
Explore how artists from around the world bring the glories of the great outdoors inside at installations in and around Maryland Hall galleries.
Exhibition Curator Kelly Gordon reports, “The diversity of the Stoner Collection provides a lively primer for anyone curious about this flourishing dimension of recent art."
ABOUT KITTY AND TOM STONER
In 1983, Native Iowans with a zest for art, Tom and Kitty Stoner were drawn to Annapolis for its historical charm, warm-spirited community and, like many, the great sailing.
They surrounded themselves with works by leading 20th century sculptors, from Rodin to Goldberg, and cultivated a distinctive collection by assembling a cache of drawings by sculptors.
Parallel to this endeavor they established a foundation - TKF - to create nature-focused contemplative spaces that counter the dynamic of settings associated with high stress (naturescared.org).
