Daedel Gallery exhibits of artworks from near and far are 0) culturally diverse
Fallston Mall. Various artists
Almost all the works in this exhibit (through March 30) are by friends of gallery owner Ernest Walters, some from as far away as France, Spain and Mexico. The late Adja Yunkers of Latvia is probably the most recognized name of the lot. A veteran of the Spanish Civil War (and probably the Russian Revolution), he came to America just before World War II and ensconced himself in American abstract expressionism. "Adja's theory was that children were the best artists, because their images were more pure, coming almost directly from the subconscious," says Mr. Walters, adding that Yunkers' work can be found in "every major museum in the Western World."

EARTH ART GALLERY
Savage Mill. "Daughters of the Hoop: Native American Women Artists"
Director Jane Goss' love for Native American art prompted her to open Earth Art Gallery. In this exhibit (through April 4), you'll find lots of it, including storyteller dolls by Rachel Arnold (Acoma) and Vicki Walker (Apache); bronze sculpture by Retha Walden Gambaro (Creek), and color prints by Virginia Stroud (Cherokee). A videotape about New Mexican potter Maria Martinez is also available for viewing. One thing you won't find, though, is the work of Maryland Indians. "Maryland Indians are very quiet," Ms. Goss explains. "I have asked, but they're a little shy." Call 604-2202.
