On Exhibit Now
March 22 — May 25, 2019
Artists: Charlie Citron, Annet Couwenberg, and Piper Shepard
Curators: David Friedheim and Nicole Buckingham Kern
The exhibition "Fiberworks" looks at fibers not just as the surface upon which marks are made, but through various processes such as molding, perforating, pleating and stacking, becoming the vehicle of the artistic expression.
Funded in part by the generous grant awarded to the Galleries at CCBC by the Maryland State Art Council, we were able to have Charlie Citron come from his home in the Netherlands to be an artist-in-residence. Citron spent two weeks working with the sculpture and 3D students, demonstrating his process, inspiring them to create their own work, and showing them how to install this type of artwork in a gallery. Visitors can see the fruits of these workshops in the Gallery at CCBC Catonsville, as well as an installation in the Art Building vestibule.
With the help of the communications office, the Galleries were able to conduct video interviews with each artist. We welcomed back alumni Carmen (LAST NAME) to discuss with the artists their work, views on fibers and material, and thoughts on the creative process. All the interviews are being shown in the Gallery at CCBC Catonsville and will be available to be seen throughout the length of Fiberworks.
Closed until Summer 2019.

The Gallery at CCBC Essex is teaming up with the English Department to help inspire visual and writing artists alike to create new work. The exhibition “A Thousand Words” will focus on the use of text within artwork. Each artist incorporates words into their work, exploring their meaning, the beauty of inherent in the shape of each letter, and what it means to communicate.
A Thousand Words is an annual exhibition. Each "volume" has a new curator that incorporates their own theme and style to the show. This year, Deborah Ciccarelli focused on work that made her "either question our nation's choices, or reflect with awe and admiration at humanity."
During the exhibition we will be collecting submissions of written works inspired by the artwork in the show. A jury will then go through the submissions and choose the best pieces to be featured in a literature magazine that will be designed by our graphic design students. We’ll celebrate the works with a Reading Night held in the Gallery.
