"Accessories for the Outdoors."

Everything from wind-activated sculpture to woven-metal baskets are featured in this exhibit (through Aug. 31) by several artists who create works for the outdoors. Natural steel sculptures, tables and chairs highlight the art of Ivan McLean, who also has sculptures made from North Carolina marble on display. Susan Berem's wind-activated sculptures, suspended from pedestals or the ceiling, are enhanced by wind chimes and enameled cups. Also on display are the woven metal baskets of Vicky Katen -- which appear to be made out of natural, non-metal materials -- and woven baskets and sculptures of Cindy Luna. Other artists presented are Jim Millar and Schar Ter Beest. Call 539-6585.


8 E. Franklin St.

The works of Konstantinos Damalas.

Combining realism with a touch of whimsy, this Greek artist who now lives in Baltimore paints brightly colored floral arrangements and landscapes. Described by director Kirsten Smith as a stimulating mix of Van Gogh and Matisse, the oil paintings on display (through Sept. 4) use strong primary and complementary color schemes and display an understanding of composition which draws the viewer to the subject. The works are large and free-flowing, some are highly detailed and with others, says Ms. Smith, "you don't even know what they are." Call 576-8271.
