Chesapeake Gallery

The Chesapeake Gallery at Harford Community College features contemporary art by emerging and established artists as well as HCC faculty and students.

Located in the Student Center, the Chesapeake Gallery is the only exhibition space of its kind between Baltimore and Newark. It serves as a vital educational link between the community and the practice of art and design in the region.

Annual Juried Student Art + Design Exhibition, 4/26 - 5/20/18

Each year, students in the Art + Design program at Harford Community College are encouraged to submit their work to the Annual Exhibition held in the Chesapeake Gallery on campus in the Student Center – the only gallery between Wilmington, DE and Baltimore, MD exclusively showing contemporary art and design work. This exhibition has a long tradition within the Visual, Performing and Applied Arts Division dating prior to the 1970s. Thousands of students have started their exhibition careers with this show. Over the last decade this exhibition has been juried by art and design professionals from the region who have recommended purchase awards for students whose work is now permanently collected and displayed in the Joppa North Gallery in Joppa Hall.

This year's juror, Margaret Winslow,  is the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Delaware Art Museum located in Wilmington, DE. She has curated for the Neuberger Museum of Art, New Wilmington Art Association, Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, York Art Association and assisted with exhibits for the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. In 2009, she participated in Maryland Art Place’s 7th Annual Curators’ Incubator with her exhibition, Soft Space: Architecture in Contemporary Art. Margaret holds a BA in Art History from the University of Mary Washington and an MA in Modern and Contemporary Art, Theory and Criticism from SUNY Purchase College.
