Activist artist Margaret Adams Parker is exhibiting her collection Lament for Our World: Woodcuts, Etchings and Sculpture in College of Southern Marylands Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery located in the Fine Arts Center on the La Plata Campus through Oct. 23. Adams Parker chooses her subjects based on a representation of the combination of beauty and sadness. Her laments are responses to individual acts and events that often times display suffering and terror. Her work is an invitation to the audience to look at the world through her eyes, hands, heart and mind. She executes the majority of her work as woodcuts. The medium is appealing to her because it is direct and simple and creates the ability to make multiples. The gallery is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
