- The Washington Times - Tuesday, February 3, 2004

The 11 local artists exhibiting in Connor Contemporary Art’s Political Climate, opening today, demonstrate that though Washington is primarily a political city, it has the same urban problems as any U.S. metropolis. The photos of Ken Ashton and Lely Constantinople show several of Washington’s decaying sections. Photographers Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry focus on the anguish of homeless teenage youth — and there’s much, much more. At Connor, 1730 Connecticut Ave. NW. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, through Feb. 14. Free. 202/588-8750.

The 8:50 p.m. showing of the film will be augmented by highlights from the group’s appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on consecutive Sundays in February 1964.
