And Still We Rise:
A Exhibit on Humor
The Gallery at CCBC Essex
November 1 - December 11, 2021
Curator: Emilyann Craighead
Artists: Brad Blair, Susie Brandt, Chloe Irla, Jeremy Jirsa, Donna McCullough, David Showalter, Christine Wolfe Strong, R. L. Tillman
The artists in And Still We Rise use humor in their artwork, each in their own way. Some use it to help talk about important issues by giving the viewer a gentle entry into thinking about the topic. Others use it to point out societal follies, and some just use it to provide a little levity. This exhibition hopes to bring humor into your day.

August 23 - December 8, 2021
Curator: Nicole Buckingham Kern
Artist: Amanda Burnham
A solo exhibition of Amanda Burnham's artwork at the Gallery at CCBC Catonsville.
"With these structural and symbolic motifs, I mean to suggest difficulties of navigating the contemporary world as an individual – particularly in the face of overwhelming systemic disfunction and the suspicious and contested nature of information."
Frankenstein and Frankenshow
Online only virtual exhibition and theatrical performance
October 15 - December 31, 2020
Exhibition Curator: Erik Miller
Director: Brad Norris
The Galleries and the Theater of CCBC are joining together to produce a digital presentation of the student-written play of Frankenstein. Reinterpreted to be set in present-day Baltimore, the play highlights aspects of Mary Shelley’s book, such as belonging and otherness, while also bringing forth new themes like gender identity and motherhood. There will be staged readings, filmed scenes, interviews, and images of the creative processes involved in creating this Frankenstein.
