The Havre de Grace Arts Collective is proud to present Gallery 220, a fine art gallery and creative hub within Havre de Grace’s Arts & Entertainment District.
Gallery 220 provides a high-level, professional, creative gallery exhibition space for the benefit of the community and of the exhibiting artists. We also seek to collaborate with, and uplift, other local galleries and art studios in the area in terms of coordinated exhibitions and art crawls to make Havre de Grace a premiere art destination of the Mid-Atlantic.

we aim to become a creative hub for Havre de Grace’s entire A&E District.

Gallery 220 Events
The Art of Drag
September 30 - November 12
The Art of Drag seeks to explore the evolution, history and social impact of modern drag as both a visual and performance art. The exhibit will also highlight the stories behind the performers themselves, exploring themes such as survivorship, trauma-healing, and weight and body image, as well as socially imposed double standards regarding clothing and self-expression across genders.
A key aspect of Gallery 220’s mission as a fine art gallery is to “[promote] intellectually provocative artistic discourse.”
For this show specifically, we aim to debunk common misconceptions about this art form and educate the Public by featuring historical references of famous drag icons (for example, Baltimore’s own Divine) alongside physical costumes, photography, paintings, and video essays that explore the “behind the scenes” aspects of drag and the personalities behind the performance.
