Harford Community College will host the inaugural "Harford 100-Mile Biennial" Exhibition from June 16 through September 21, 2023, in the college's Chesapeake Gallery. This exhibition, which will be open to the public, will spotlight the talents of local artists living within a 100-mile radius of the college.

The exhibition aims to underline the richness of the regional art scene and to emphasize Harford Community College's role in promoting local culture. The displayed artwork will span various genres, including painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, fiber works, and mixed media.

In addition to showcasing local talent, the exhibit will feature a competition element. The Gallery and Arts on Campus Committee at Harford will select one piece, judged on skill and merit, to receive a $500 Juror's Choice Award.

The Chesapeake Gallery, situated on the second floor of the Student Center at Harford Community College, is accessible to everyone. The gallery offers free parking with handicap options close to the venue. It operates from 8:30 AM to 7 PM on Mondays and Thursdays, 8:30 AM to 5 PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM on Fridays. The gallery is closed on weekends and major holidays.

The college encourages community members to join the closing reception on September 21, from 6:30 to 8 PM. Beyond serving as an exhibition space for established and emerging artists, the Chesapeake Gallery is an essential educational link between the community and the practice of art and design in the region.
