Scarlett Place. "Maryland Printmakers:

A Survey of Members' Works" When Mark Moreland curated this show (through Oct. 26), he looked for works that reveal diversity of technique and subject matter. Thus, from 160 members, he chose 17 pieces by 17 artists that include, in the abstract world, an aquatint in shades of gray by Richard Hellman and a "colorful, moving" monotype by Dorothea Barrick. In representational works, he offers Elizabeth Gaither Ochs' aquatint of a Gothic Victorian house and a colorful litho titled "Baltimore Blaze" by Caroline Thorington.

A traveling exhibit of Maryland Printmakers' works is appearing this month in Rio de Janeiro, part of a cultural exchange with Brazilian printmakers. The spring of 1993 will bring a reciprocal exchange of Brazilian prints to the Baltimore area. Call 426-9038.

11 W. Chase St. 1991 collages by Jimmie Miller.

Jimmie Miller's colorful collages of silk-screened paper (through Oct. 31) are a gestural world unto themselves. Partners co-owner Sharon Stockfield says the images have "almost a universal feel to them, certainly self-contained" with half the works enclosed in circles, half within squares. Mr. Miller himself, schooled in classic color theory, is interested in the relations of the colors to each other, how they relate to the viewer, and the psychology of color. He uses the circle, he says, because we view the world without corners. Mr. Miller, an architect and city planner for 17 years, has dedicated himself to a fine arts career since 1979. Call 539-5236.
