Digital Program HERE

Gallery 220 is pleased to present FLOAT, a curated group exhibition.

During summer months with warmer weather, later sunsets, and vacations from school and work, one can begin to “float” through this time of year. 

Artists have explored variations on this theme, both in the literal and the abstract. They have presented these interpretations in the forms of paintings, drawings, sculpture, multimedia, photography, and site specific installation pieces. Take a step out of the heat and float through this summer show!

Gallery 220 will host FLOAT from July 5th through August 20th, 2024.  The public is invited to an opening reception on July 5th from 6:00PM to 9:00PM as well as a closing reception on Sunday, August 18th from 2:00PM to 4:00PM.

Juried Call for Art - Cultural Agitators

Juried Call for Art: “Cultural Agitators” - EXTENDED TO 7/14 

Are you making art that challenges the status quo? If you are, you should be in this show!

"Cultural Agitators" will be a conversation between history and contemporary art that reflects groups, individuals, or movements that shake things up and facilitate change. Think MLK, Greta Thunburg, John Waters, Counterculture Movements, etc.
Selected artwork reflecting on what it means to be a "Cultural Agitator" will be on display throughout the gallery alongside historical artifacts with ties to Lafayette.
The show is a collaboration between The Havre de Grace Arts Collective (Gallery 220),  the Historic Havre de Grace Foundation, the Greater Havre de Grace Museum Association, Lafayette Farewell Tour 2024/2025, and the private collection of Mark VerValin and Dr. John W. Hawkins with the intentions to celebrate the bicentennial of Lafayette's farewell tour.

Open Call - Curated Group Exhibitions

Gallery 220 announces an open call for Curated Group Exhibition Proposals.

Curated Group Exhibition Proposals are defined as: art shows that feature multiple artists and are coordinated by one or more “independent curators,” i.e. individuals outside of the Gallery 220 selection committee.
Proposals are reviewed within the context of Gallery 220’s mission to “create artistic programming to complement what already exists in the area by promoting intellectually provocative artistic discourse which will, in turn, attract more artists and visitors to Havre de Grace.”
