511 N. Charles St. "John B. Sills, Oil on Linen."
The atmospheric landscapes of Baltimore native John B. Sills (on display through mid-July) portray the countryside as he imagines it was hundreds of years ago, before man got a hold of it, says gallery director Marc Horowitz. Sills himself says he aims to raise public awareness of the environment and encourage active participation in its protection and preservation. A graduate of Towson State and the Baltimore's Schuler School of Fine Arts, a school that teaches traditional painting techniques based on the old masters, Sills also paints still lifes and tromp l'oeil. A reception today at 6 p.m. opens the exhibit of 68 pieces. Call 783-5550.
