Stories by Laurence Ross
The exhibition title, Skully, comes from a popular game Owens played as a child in Druid Heights, just a mile away from Bolton Hill, the site of CPM, a new art gallery

Viewed as movements, these abstracts are maps that retrace Owens’ process, the steps he took to arrive at the finished series.

How do we break free? Giving our full attention seems a good place to begin.

Polyphemus, on view at Goucher College’s Silber Art Gallery, is an installation that takes its title from Homer’s Odyssey.

Nothing happens without the audience in The Institute for Counterfeit Memory, a play that arrives in a cardboard box

The experimental nature of this play is not simply for the sake of experiment but to highlight all of our assumptions that make us comfortable and therefore passive, forgetful, and complicit.
