Bring a donation of nonperishable food the next time you come by the Torpedo Factory, and you can help feed the hungry!

United Community Ministries (UCM) is a private, non-profit, community-based social services agency that assists low-income families and individuals in Northern Virginia. Please help us build UCM’s food bank by bringing cans of food anytime through December 20. In 2011 we collected over 200 pounds of food for this worthy organization. Help us beat our own record!

You can drop off food in the box marked “Holiday Food Drive” in front of The Art League Gallery (studio 21 on the first floor of the Torpedo Factory). UCM has a list of their most-needed items here.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
