When Raissa Howera was growing up in the Washington area, she took part in protests supporting independence for Ukraine, the land of her father's family. Such activism was typical, she said. Her adolescence was marked by frustration with the problems that trouble the world and a sense of helplessness to change it. Now, as an art teacher at Oakland Mills Middle School in Columbia, Howera inspires students' creativity with social justice and outreach projects. This year, her students are taking part in projects such as Empty Bowls, an anti-hunger initiative by the North Carolina-based nonprofit Imagine/RENDER Group.

The "Resident Visual Artists Exhibit 2013" showcases artists who maintain studios at the Howard County Arts Council. They're making art at this Ellicott City facility, but their imaginations roam all over the place. A case in point is Mary Jo Tydlacka, who is well-known for watercolors depicting the historic district in Ellicott City and other sites around Howard County. She travels far from home for the subject matter in the current show, however, with three watercolors and an oil painting that depict Italy.

As a writer, choreographer, director, actress, radio host and, for nine years, chairwoman of the Glenelg Country School performing arts department, Carole Graham Lehan said she rarely works alone. `That's the thing about performing arts," she said, "you have to adapt and collaborate with other people and use what gifts they bring to the table." That is why she feels conflicted about being singled out to receive the Howard County Arts Council's Outstanding Arts Educator Award this year, she said.

The object was to depict a vivid memory on colored paper, creating a narrative of depth and symmetry. Marriotts Ridge High School junior Taylor Hensh conjured up a piece illustrating what happens when New Year's Eve fireworks go wrong. The piece recalls a vacation at Deep Creek Lake two years ago with her family and a few others, when the fathers decided to set off fireworks — one of which struck Taylor in the arm, putting holes in her North Face jacket but leaving her otherwise unscathed.

The four artists in the exhibit "Intertwined Expressions" are linked by their devotion to abstraction. Similarities in how they use coiling lines and densely layered colors make for a cohesive show at the Howard County Arts Council. These linkages are most clearly seen in the works by Peter Gordon and Allison Long-Hardy. For both artists, circular and oval shapes help anchor compositions that otherwise feature enough floating forms to verge on being formless. Gordon intensively uses pencil and crayon to almost completely cover the paper surface in such works as "Early Morning, Autumn.

The Howard County Arts Council celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2011 by moving its annual gala to a new venue --the Peter and Elizabeth Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center at Howard Community College. The move is a growing up, of sorts, for the bash. “We wanted to bring the event up a notch but also keep the things that people love, like the HOWIE Awards, the Rising Star competition and the silent auction,” says Coleen West, HCAC’s executive director. For the first time, alcohol can be served at the gala, and the event will be more of a dress-up affair, says West.
