Baltimore County, MD – Community College of Baltimore County presents an array of programs and events this April.

April - June 3
The Balance: Work by Monika Andersson and Zoe Perry-Wood (The Gallery at CCBC Essex)
Exhibition: March 29 through June 3, CCBC Essex, Art and Humanities Hall, Art Gallery
Gallery hours: M-TH 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; F 12-7 p.m.; Sat. 1-7 p.m.; Closed Sunday
The Balance is an exhibition of images by two New England photographers steeped in the tradition of social documentary photography, Monika Andersson and Zoe Perry-Wood. Andersson’s black and white pictures of drag queen festivals were made 25 years ago, while Perry-Wood’s work is based in the LGBTQ community of present day. The narrative found in both bodies of work, although years apart, is strikingly similar. The Balance is the ebb and flow of living your life being true to your identify. Your private life becomes public out of necessity. It’s a necessity to ensure that your rights and privileges and choices as individuals are granted and maintained. Curator: Robert Creamer
