Stories
November 3–15, 2023 | Gallery Hall
First Generation to College Celebration Day Reception: Wednesday, November 8, 5–7 p.m.

Stories is an art exhibit featuring photographs by first-generation and first-year students at York College. It is presented in collaboration with the Cultural Alliance of York County and photographer Carla B. Long. First-Year Seminar class But First, Happiness collaborated with local photographer Carla B. Long to share their unique first-generation story in a picture. The students were asked to make a photograph about their journey to college. Over the semester, they learned about the creative process, focusing on how to create an image that tells their story.

Being the first person from their family to attend college meant they had to pave their way, learn from their mistakes, ask questions, and keep working hard to achieve their goals. Each first-year student has a story to tell. York College is honored to have these dedicated and resilient students as part of our college family. We hope you enjoy the show.

Support for this Arts in Education (AIE) collaboration was provided by: Cultural Alliance of York County, in regional partnership with Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, community EITC donations, and in conjunction with the York College of Pennsylvania.

Stephen March | As I See It: A Retrospective
November 24, 2023–January 20, 2024 | Gallery Hall

Opening Reception: Friday, November 24, 4–7 p.m.
Artist Q&A: Saturday, December 2 | 2–3 p.m.

“As I See It: A Retrospective” opens on November 24—Black Friday—for a reason: the artist’s 80th birthday. The exhibition is curated by Interim Gallery Director, Ivy Rodgers.

“As I See It” will be Stephen March’s 30th solo exhibition over the course of his career, which began in 1966, when he graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a B.A. in Fine Art. March went on to receive his M.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design in 1968. In a career spanning more than four decades, he has created an immense body of work that touches on topics ranging from news media and surveillance to the fragility of human existence.

The Elegies series has had the longest lifespan- it is a body of work of mixed media paintings covering conflicts March has witnessed throughout his life: the racial and civil rights upheaval of the 1960’s, the Vietnam War, and most recently, the conflict in Ukraine. In talking about the intent of his work, March states, “I have been, and continue to be, interested in creating visual art that can transcend the physicality of the material surface and be a vehicle for emotional, spiritual, and intellectual contemplation, as well as a metaphor for human existence, especially within my own time.”

Stephen March has worked professionally as an artist, residential designer/carpenter, and teacher; most recently at York Country Day School as a Middle and Upper School Art Instructor until his retirement in 2016. He has also taught at a collegiate level at York College of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania State University York Campus, and Elmira College in Elmira, New York. His art is in the collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania, Chattahoochee Valley Art Museum, Masur Museum of Art, Elmira College, York Hospital/Apple Hill Center, and numerous private collections in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Texas. March lives and works in Spring Grove.
