A thick line of people huddledunder their bright umbrellas outsideGreen Holly Elementary School onTuesday morning, visible from a dis-tance and littering the sidewalk withbold blocks of rainy-weather colorslike pink, green, black, orange, and of course, red and blue. A few minutes be-fore 7 am, the line shifted forward as thedoors were opened, and a few minuteslater the people moved inside, crampingthe small gymnasium as they waited tovote. Some came with their children,others came with their spouses, but allsmiled as they cast their ballots in whathas been described as one of the mostriveting elections in generations.This year’s ballot for St.Mary’s County was relatively small,but included among the candidates forlocal elections were Marilyn Crosby

Mary Braun, director of the BoydenGallery at St. Mary’s College of Mary-land, said she has always appreciated col-lages, but that the newest exhibit show-casing collages from three different art-ists has educated her quite a bit on theart form.“Collages are essentially about re-lationships,” she said, adding that themixed media and materials did as muchto convey each artist’s message as thepicture itself.The exhibit, “Collage Perspectives,”brings together three Philadelphia-areaartists; Bill Freeland, Andrea Packard,and Peter Paone. The show kicked off Oct. 20 with an informal gallery talk with Andrea Packard Oct. 22, and willrun until Nov. 22.Walking through the exhibit, the dif-ferences between the artists define whatcan only be described as a dynamic rela-tionship between the works and the art-ists themselves.Peter Paone has had 52 one-personexhibitions in New York, Houston, FortWorth, Philadelphia, London, and Ger-many, but this is his first exhibition in-cluding a major series of his collages.Paone’s work echoes what is com-monly thought of when the word “col-lage” appears, harkening to what manyGuggenheim purists would recognize asthe modernist tradition reexamined, withglued on patches “colliding” with the restof the media underneath, combining thetradition of Braque and Picasso with per-sonal and surrealist elements. His colorsare warm, his juxtapositions are rich, andhis pieces are arranged with a keen eyefor symbolism.Andrea Packard has a solo collageexhibition on display at the PhiladelphiaInternational Airport, but she has alsodisplayed works at the Painting Centerand the obbi Lane Gallery in New York.Additionally, her work has been includ-ed in several collections including theMann Center for the Performing Arts inPhiladelphia, the Museum of AmericanArt at the Pennsylvania Academy of theFine Arts, and the Center for EmergingArtists.Since 1995, Packard has directedthe List Gallery at Swarthmore College,serving as curator for more than 60 exhi-bitions and authoring more than a dozencatalogue essays. She has even enjoyedher own tenure in St. Mary’s County,as a resident at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.Packard’s selections show what mighthappen if Matisse or Bearden ran out of paint or photographs and had to work with a pair of scissors and their grand-mother’s quilt collection. Her pieces em-ploy densely layered strips of paper andfabric, arranged almost as a sea or forestof strips of everything from old greetingcards to her favorite pair of jeans, culmi-nating in a unique collage aesthetic thatplays with spatial relationships and cre-ates dreamlike landscapes.The works of Bill Freeland seem mini-malist when compared with the other two,but they are no less imaginative. Freelandgraduated from Hans Hoffman’s school of painting in Provincetown, Mass., and hetaught at Moore College of art and designin Philadelphia for more than 20 years,having exhibited paintings, drawings andsculptures for more than 50 years.Freeland’s works are nothing lessthan collages made into sculptures, usingthe collage aesthetic to make rustic twoand three-dimensional paintings, takingmuch of his inspiration from nautical andagricultural themes.Braun smiled as she walked past eachpiece in the gallery.“Embedded in all these things…arememories,” she said, pointing to Pack-ard’s strips of fabric next to Freeland’sbent wood pieces next to Paone’s surrealassemblages, each piece bespeaking itsrelationship to the next one, the exhibitflowing like a collage of collages.

A traffic stop by Maryland State Policein the early morning hours of Nov. 1 nettedseveral varieties of narcotics, thousands of dollars in cash and the arrests of three sus-pects from Virginia who prosecutors allegewere transporting the narcotics with intentto distribute them.OKeefe C. Stanley, Jr, 30, of FallsChurch, Michael Anthony Dominguez, 22of Arlington and Dre M. Roberts, 25, of McLean had their preliminary hearingsNov. 3 in front of District Court JudgeJohn F. Slade III.Roberts and Stanley were held on$150,000 and $250,000 full bonds respec-tively; Judge Slade ordered Dominguez beheld without bond because of numerous in-cidents where he failed to appear in courton other charges.Before Judge Slade could cut Domin-guez off from asking a question, the sus-pect said, “I’m kind of confused, the drugsare mine.”In charging documents filed againstall three suspects, Dominguez also saidthe narcotics found in the vehicle by statetroopers were his.According to court papers, a statetrooper pulled over the vehicle the threewere driving in on Route 235 in Hollywoodbecause the tag light was inoperative andthe tags on the vehicle had just expired.The vehicle was a gold Cadillac Esca-lade with Virginia tags, court papers stat-ed, and was driven by Stanley.Assistant State’s Attorney Daniel J.White said during the hearings that Rob-erts had told police she did not know thenames of the men with whom she wasdriving and denied having any relationshipwith them.White also said in court that Robertsused a cell phone to allegedly call otherconfederates in the alleged drug run-ning operation, apparently to warn themthey had been caught and to dispose of evidence.“She’s certainly a confederate of theirs,” White told Judge Slade.Roberts denied White’s claim.“I didn’t alert anyone, I was calling fora ride home,” Roberts said.Dominguez, White told the court, alsogave law officers a false name when theyquestioned him that day.“When they ran his fingerprintsthrough the FBI, they found out who hewas,” White said.Police also found more than $10,000 incash on Dominguez, White said in court,and that a more thorough search of the carwas pending.According to charging documents, thetrooper who pulled over the three suspectssmelled a strong odor of marijuana whenhe began to interview them and requestedback up.While initially searching the vehicle,troopers found a bag of suspected mari- juana in the center console, charging docu-ments state, as well as packages of hash-ish, hashish oil and additional marijuanathroughout the vehicle.All three were charged with three sep-arate counts of possession of a controlleddangerous substance with the intent to dis-tribute it.Each count has a maximum penalty of five years in prison or a $15,000 fine if thesuspects are convicted.Preliminary hearings have been set forNov. 26 for all three suspects, while Cir-cuit Court indictments are expected soon.
