The Gallery at CCBC Essex: “TOUCHED WITH FIRE: BEHIND THE CURTAIN”
Oct. 5 through Nov. 20, The Gallery at CCBC Essex, Art and Humanities Hall, CCBC Essex
“The theme draws its name from the groundbreaking 1996 book “Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament” by renowned psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison. The same driving discomfort leading to substance misuse and desperate behaviors also may yield extraordinary creativity: grand gifts to the rest of us born of incomparable urgency. Touched with Fire: Behind the Curtain presents uplifting and life-affirming art alongside words and journal entries that reveal a harrowing darkness: how to reconcile these two internal forces?”

About the New Day Campaign-“The New Day Campaign is a 2015 initiative using art to challenge stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness and addiction, making the world a more healing place. Through 92 days, 15 art exhibitions, and 60 public events curated around our virtues and beliefs, the New Day Campaign brings Baltimore together to show that where stigma ends, healing begins.”

The Gallery at CCBC Dundalk: “TOUCHED WITH FIRE: A FAMILY TALE”
Oct. 19 to Dec. 4, The Gallery at CCBC Dundalk, College Community Center, CCBC Dundalk
The theme draws its name from the groundbreaking 1996 book Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament, by renowned psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison. The same driving discomfort leading to substance misuse and desperate behaviors also may yield extraordinary creativity: grand gifts to the rest of us born of incomparable urgency. The exhibition “Touched with Fire: A Family Tale” features art by three members of the same family (Mogens Christiansen, Peter Bruun, and Elisif Bruun), each “touched with fire” in ways passed from one generation to the next. This exhibition is presented in partnership with The New Day Campaign, a 2015 initiative using art to challenge stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness and addiction, making the world a more healing place. The New Day Campaign culminates with public programming and outreach during the last quarter of 2015 (October 1- December 31) that will open hearts, change thinking and conversations, and offer pathways to action.
