Currently Featuring Cristal Sabbagh

Stevenson is proud to feature SHS faculty member Cristal Sabbagh as the final artist in the 2021-2022 Visiting Artist Series. Cristal's artwork will be exhibited in the Visiting Artist Gallery through May 20, 2022. Learn more about Cristal and her artwork at her website.

Cristal Sabbagh’s interdisciplinary practice includes traditional portraiture, ceramics, and performance. Her practice looks outward to portraits of the world around, taking the forms of traditionally drawn portraits, figurative ceramic sculptures, and nontraditional portraits on ceramic mugs. Sabbagh labors over each piece, that act as homage and memorials and are a resistance to white-supremacy. Not only do these works infuse the user’s everyday coffee and tea rituals, but their ceramic forms will stand the test of time, potentially outliving the user by thousands of years and leaving traces of how we lived recorded by Sabbagh’s hand.

Program Overview

The Visiting Artist Program connects Stevenson students to professional visual artists through gallery exhibits and artist presentations. Created over 20 years ago by Stevenson emeritus faculty member, John DePinto, the Visiting Artist Program aims to feature a range of diverse artists, styles, and mediums throughout the school year. Annually, six artists exhibit for 6-7 weeks in the Visiting Artist Gallery. During the course of their exhibition, each artist visits two visual arts classrooms for an ARTalk, discussing their work, concepts, and process. The Visiting Artist Program and ARTalks are presented in partnership with the Stevenson Foundation.
