News Release, College of Southern Maryland
The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) presents the exhibition ‘Sic Transit Gloria Mundi’ featuring the work of artist Beverly Ress through March 19 in the Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery. From her website, Ress describes her work as the exploration of the connection between the physicality of memento mori and the enduring abstraction of ideas.
“I have been drawing representationally for many years, using found objects, working with colored pencils on Arches paper. I am interested in the observation required for representational drawing: we live in the physical world, and the structures it contains are extraordinary. Drawing is a way to pay attention,” Ress said during her recent artist lecture at CSM.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
