Three-dimensional art is on display at AACC

Eight student artists and two faculty members at Anne Arundel Community College have created a three-dimensional artwork on display in the college art gallery from today through Dec. 18.


The work, called "Motion, Passage and Transformation," incorporates stretched fabric, mesh, blueprints of figures, photography, and natural and artificial materials.

"It's bound by common materials," says Chris Mona, one of the collaborating faculty members. "All the works are done with stretched muslin and involve aspects of the body and of movement."


For example, one student produced body impressions by presenting a female figure in different positions behind the muslin. "It's 3-D and looks very real, but also mystical because of the muslin draping and wrapping," Mr. Mona said.

The project was open to any college art student, Mr. Mona said.

The work represents a collaboration by students Joe Diehl, Jason Eaton, Shannon Spath and Rose Mary Stocker, all of Annapolis; Kathleen Daywalt and Wendy Maisel, Pasadena; Amy Upchurch, Severna Park; and Peggy Wheelock, Bowie, as well as faculty members Judith Paris-Wear and Mr. Mona.

A gallery reception to honor the artists is scheduled for Dec. 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Pascal Center for Performing Arts. It is open to the public.

Robbery attempt reported at restaurant

Two gunmen tried to rob a Millersville fast-food restaurant Friday night, county police reported.

Detectives said the gunmen walked into the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in the 8000 block of Veterans Highway at 8:30 p.m. and ordered the manager to open the safe.

The manager refused and the gunmen ordered two employees and the manager to lie on the floor. One of the robbers struck one of the employees on the head with a sawed-off shotgun and both of them ran out of the restaurant.


No money was taken, police said.
