Artist, newsman have photo show at the JCC
The work of the two artists who constitute the latest show at the Jewish Community Center involves photography, but in different degrees. Doris Rief's abstractions on paper and canvas, such as "Gettysburg," reproduced here, combine various media including collage, painting, photographs and sometimes writing. Craig Terkowitz is a news photographer who also branches out in other directions. He works for the Baltimore Jewish Times but has also published in other newspapers and magazines. His work at the JCC ranges from news-related work to portraits to photographs of the Jewish population of Odessa, Ukraine. The show runs through Aug. 21 at the Norman and Sarah Brown Art Gallery of the Jewish Community Center, 5700 Park Heights Ave. For information, call (410) 542-4900.
