"Paperworks," Alice Elste Brown and Mildred Isaacs
In this exhibit, on display through February at the Scarlett Place location, Baltimore artists Brown and Isaacs examine the textual, dimensional quality of paper. Both involve themselves in the evolution of their pieces from pulpy glop to final, colorful, abstract collages, according to Mark Moreland, coordinator for the gallery. Mr. Moreland, a 1980 Maryland Institute, College of Art graduate and former visual arts coordinator for the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Art and Culture, was named coordinator last week, filling the position vacated by Jim Dockery.

"War and Peace," various artists
Talk about timing: the opening reception this exhibit at the McDonogh School's Tuttle Gallery took place two days before the U.N. deadline last month for Iraq's withdrawal from Kuwait. Appropriately enough, the exhibit (through March 8) focuses on works of overt politicism, like editorial cartoons and drawings; and "peacefully" personal works, largely meditative landscapes. The thrust of the exhibit, though, is the examination of the links between personal and political art. Among the artists featured are Cynthia Back, Sun editorial cartoonist Kevin Kallaugher, Norman Strike, Dan Kuhne, Michelle LaPerriere, Duane Lutsko, Crisley McCarson, Crystal Moll, and R. Edward Nadeau. Also at the gallery, through May 4, is a series of window installations by An Address, Cora Boyd, John Henley, Scott Pina, Jeffrey Rumaner, Michael Weiss and Bebe Williams.
