WASH POST PRAISES OUR "War Paths" EXHIBIT

Our current exhibit,"WAR PATHS: The Art of Michele Colburn," leads Mark Jenkins' Galleries column in today's editions of The Washington Post (Sunday, July 26).Under the headline, "Questioning violence by intertwining toy bears and trip wire," Jenkins writes: "Michele Colburn shoots guns. She also knits, and for the same reason---to call into question the mechanisms of violence."

The review goes on to say that Colburn "conflates images of barbarism and innocence" in her effort to create art that addresses one of the Nation's most urgent and politicized issues, our failure to keep semi-automatic weapons out of the hands of persons with criminal records and serious psychological and emotional problems, not to mention racist and/or right wing political views, who even under our current laws should not have them.SEE "WAR PATHS" TODAY 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at CK/RFA
