Stephen Knapp '69 Exhibitions Coming to New York City
Stephen Knapp ’69 will be having two, possibly three, exhibitions during December in the Metro New York City area. One of the exhibits will be at the Bernarducci Meisel Gallery from December 4, 2014 – January 10, 2015. Knapp has been exhibited all over the world and is known for his incredible architectural installation, mixed-media sculpture, photography, and ceramics. However, some of Knapp’s newest and most incredible pieces are called lightpaintings. These spectacular pieces are comprised of multiple fragments of glass which are attached to the walls and illuminated by a single light source. This technique results in a unique and one of a kind creation.
Taken from his personal webpage, Knapp writes, “Entering a lightpainting or any work of art invokes a conditional promise to do so with open eyes, to be aware of possibilities. Perception and interaction lead to an act of mutual discovery, a universal bond of our existence. There is no right answer hidden within each piece, only a shared journey.”
During his time at Hamilton, Stephen was a member of the Photography Society and Theta Delta Chi fraternity. Stephen graduated from Hamilton in 1969 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. He is the father of Sarah Damaske ’99 and father in-law to Paul Damaske ’99.
