Mary-Linn Hughes and Jerry McGrath have assembled a traveling exhibit of photographic portraits of county residents who have AIDS or have tested positive for HIV.

Until recently, Jerry McGrath's photographs had been primarily concerned with color theory and obtuse allusions to early 20th-Century art history. Combining household items and geometric shapes with natural elements such as grass and leaves, McGrath created monochromatic still lifes that fused the organic properties of his materials with such idealistic abstract philosophies as Constructivism or Suprematism.

It comes as a surprise to many fledgling shutterbugs that there is more to taking a picture than sheer technical ability. And those who have humbly worshiped at the Ansel Adams shrine tend to be both charmed and bewildered to learn of the wildly different approaches of contemporary art photography. But students can't learn these things in a vacuum. They need frequent access to photography exhibitions that will enlarge their horizons.

A woman in a pink sweater, wearing matching beaded earrings, looks out from a photograph that could be a Christmas portrait. Instead, the photo has a sharper edge. It, along with other portraits on display, is of people who have in some way been affected by AIDS. The photo exhibit at the Orange Coast College Art Gallery is entitled "This Is Our Yard" and represents people with HIV virus and AIDS, as well as people who have lost loved ones to the disease or who work with AIDS patients.

A coalition of artists, restaurateurs, fashion designers and musicians is launching a campaign to focus attention on the ravages that AIDS has inflicted in Orange County. The numbers are sobering: An estimated 12,000 Orange County men, women and children have tested HIV-positive. Nearly 2,500 of those have developed AIDS symptoms, and teen-agers and women between the ages of 25 to 44 now represent those who are at greatest risk for infection, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency.
