Watercolors for those stripped of dreams

Peggy Winters says her watercolors involving the American flag reflect personal reactions to the injustices of American society. "Today, more than ever," she writes in an artist's statement, "many Americans feel they have been stripped naked of all their dignity and have given up all hope of ever achieving their own personal 'American Dream.' "

Whether "The Evils Men Do" represents the white-male-dominated culture wrapping itself in the flag to blind itself to injustice, or whether it represents Americans "stripped naked," is something viewers can decide for themselves in the two-artist show of works by Winters and Mike Purvis at the Tuttle Gallery of McDonogh School, 8600 McDonogh Road, Owings Mills, through Dec. 15. For information, call (410) 363-0600.

Stephen Kates is one of the best cellists alive. Although he teaches at the Peabody Conservatory, we get very few chances to hear him in Baltimore. That makes his recital tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Art all the more special. His program for the Chamber Music Society of Baltimore will include what is perhaps the first (and certainly the most accessible) of Elliot Carter's important works, the Sonata of 1948, Beethoven's Sonata in D Major (opus 102, No. 2) and Debussy's Sonata. General admission is $15, $13 for museum members and seniors, and $5 for students. For information, call (410) 486-1140.

Stephen Wigler Amusical adaptation of C. S. Lewis' classic, "The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe," will be presented Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium. The first of 13 shows produced at Goucher this season by Theatreworks/USA, a touring company for young audiences, "The Lion" is an abridged version of the musical "Narnia."

The rest of the schedule consists of: "Babes in Toyland," Dec. 6; "The Nutcracker," Dec. 16; "Charlotte's Web," Jan. 24, 25; "Young Abe Lincoln," Feb. 2; "Freedom Train," Feb. 7, 8; "Little Women," Feb. 25; "Tom Sawyer," April 21; "Curious George," April 28; "The Ugly Duck," May 2; "Dinosaurs, Puppets & Picasso," May 9; "The Secret Garden," May 18, 19; and "Merlin," May 24. Tickets must be ordered in advance and are $4.50 per zTC person in groups of 15 or more, and $7 per person in groups of fewer than 15. For tickets or information, call (212) 420-8202.
