Black History Month B

Annual Black History Month Exhibition

January 28-March 26, 2023

Public Reception: Sunday, February 5, 2-5 pm

The African American experience has been inundated with various forms of oppression rooted in anti-blackness. But this oppression has not been met with acquiescence, but resistance. This year’s exhibition highlights some of these stories of black resistance in Prince George’s County from the era of enslavement to the Black Lives Matter movement of the present.

Maggie Gourlay: Wallpapers for A Warming World

April 8-May 28, 2023

Public Reception: Saturday, May 13, 2023, 2-4 pm 

At the intersection of the natural world and domestic space, Maggie Gourlay juxtaposes the built world against the natural environment. In her exhibition titled Wallpapers for a Warming World, the assumption that we are separate and immune from the events shaping our natural environment is questioned. Gourlay creates wallpaper patterns that take a nuanced look at our environmental complacency through the lenses of the beautification of domestic spaces versus decreasing biodiversity and the negative effects towards which we are marching.

Julie Polt: Momento Mori

April 1-May 14, 2023

Public Reception: Saturday, May 13, 2023, 2-4 pm

Memento mori is Latin for “remember that you have to die.” This concept has been studied by philosophers and artists throughout history.. Polt seeks to explore this concept in her latest work from a perspective of remembering our mortality, allowing ourselves to focus on the preciousness and fragility of life, and seek out what is important each day.
