May 03, 1991|By Gwen Gant and Donna Peremes


9/Photographs by Barbara Young. 729 E. Pratt St.

Photos without figures is the style, and nostalgia is the theme of Barbara Young's nature series at Katzenstein's Scarlett Place gallery (through May). Ms. Young says she paints with her camera, producing images from Maine and the Bahamas that capture the feeling of the people that were there. Viewers are encouraged to imagine themselves within the photographs to examine the image. An opening reception will be held today at 5 p.m. Call 727-0748.


2(Works by Pat McHold and Bobbie Burnett.

600 Quiet Waters Park Road, Annapolis.

Pat McHold's watercolors and collages of landscapes, in the Visitors' Center Gallery, spring from her experiences with the earth, water and sky -- such as rowing a boat or climbing rocks on the coast of Maine. Ms. Burnett's work, in the Restaurant Gallery, consists of stained-glass wall hangings. The Annapolis resident's work has been shown in galleries from California to Missouri to Paris. Much of it has been sold in fund-raising efforts for the Johns Hopkins Oncology Center and the Anne Arundel Community Hospital Oncology Center. Both exhibits run through June 11; a reception for the artists will be held Sunday at 5 p.m. Call (301) 222-1777.


928 N. Charles St. Rilke Gigi . . .

And a Face in Time.

It's not every day that Baltimore hosts exhibits by former residents of Katmandu, and that's not the only unusual aspect of what owner Ricky O describes as a "wild" show. In the spirit of Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast," Rilke McKendric (Gigi is a nickname) makes eerily lively objets d'art -- like chairs created out of life masks of human faces and body parts. You may even encounter a Ricky O settee among the furniture, sculpture, and photographs. She's also fascinated by the color white -- just about everything in the show is white, except the deep, rich colors of the chair pillows. The visuals are aurally elaborated with McKendric whispering the words to her essay "Faces." A reception for the artist will be held Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Call 528-1744.
