MARYLAND INSTITUTE, COLLEGE OF ART
Thesis Gallery, Fox Building. "The Fine Art of Maintenance." This collection of drawings paintings and sculpture (through Oct. 14) spotlights the work of 11 members of the maintenance staff at the Maryland Institute, artists who have been exhibiting together since 1981. Using wood, wire, paint and Styrofoam, Joe Roberson's intensely colorful "Body Language" is reminiscent of a table with anthropomorphic legs. Two forms at either end of the table have spine and rib shapes. The whole piece, says Roberson, is a relationship, inspired by abstract elements of his family.
Other pieces in the exhibit include Robert Alholm's humorous "Any Port in a Storm" and physical plant director John Ferguson's cast bronze sculpture. Call 225-2300.
