8 E. Franklin St. "Atlas, Angels & the Amiga"
In this exhibit (through Oct. 2), artist Joan Asplen paints traditional, romantic, idealized nudes in watercolor, adds computer enhanced imagery (from an Amiga computer) and real objects (puzzle pieces, electronic elements) to create mixed-media paintings. According to gallery owner Kirsten Smith, these works "emphasize the conflict between human nature and technology, between the sensual and the mechanic." Call 576-8271. Namwalkie -- an African term meaning "from the fire" -- is an appropriate description of Lonnie Graham's photographs and raku-fired ceramics, which are created by the fire of sunlight and natural fire, respectively. According to Baltimore Clayworks director Deborah Bedwell the ceramics series yields forms in loose, organic shell or cone shapes, in a black, matte body against a smooth, white glaze. Mr. Graham's photographs, natural landscapes from Assateague Island and Mount Washington, are devoid of architecture and human form. The director of the photography program at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild in Pittsburgh, the artist says his works are "symbolic of struggle to achieve balance and harmony within the natural realm." Until Oct. 1. Call 578-1919.
