Art and issues


January 18, 1996|By John Dorsey

Socio-political art has been very much with us the past few years, and it appears again in Anne Arundel Community College's "Cry for Justice/Visions for Change."

A juried show curated by Nancy Sausser, program director of Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel, it drew submissions from 90 artists across the country. Sausser chose the work of 23. Subject matter, according to the curator, includes "the environment, social and economic inequality, racism, homelessness, the devastation of war and unchecked consumerism." Among the works is the etching "Tea Time," by New Haven, Conn., artist Fethi Meghelli, showing figures who look longingly at a table from outside the window.

At the Pascal Center for Performing Arts Gallery, Anne Arundel Community College, College Parkway (just off Route 2), through Feb. 14. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For information, call (410) 541-2510.
