Splitting Image to premiere 'White Money'

Splitting Image Theatre Company departs from its practice of creating original work when it presents the East Coast premiere of Julie Jensen's "White Money" at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., beginning Wednesday. A darkly comic feminist road play, "White Money" explores television, politics and the American way of life. "Think Branch Davidians, think all-star wrestling, think Jerry Falwell," says Splitting Image director Cindy Croot. Show times are 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays through May 8. Tickets are $14. For more information, call (410) 752-8558.

@ Juliet Erlich's ceramic murals take many forms -- architectural reliefs, still lifes representing clusters of musical instruments and sheet music, painted scenes including landscape, seascape and water lilies. The artist, who has studied in New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand and Turkey, will be showing a group of her works in the exhibit "Juliet Erlich: A Journey for the Senses" through June 3 at the Baltimore Life Gallery, 10075 Red Run Blvd., Owings Mills. For information, call (410) 581-6600, Ext. 3137. And for a different type of ceramic show, try "Up From the Earth, Down From the Sun," a group show of utilitarian and sculptural works by ceramic artists including Doug Baldwin, Jane Bialek, Volker Schoenfleiss, Ingrid Zwaard and Charles Metzger, through May 13 at the Humanities and Arts Gallery of Essex Community College, 7201 Rossville Blvd. For information, call (410) 780-6910.

John Dorsey Pianist Mark Markham is best known in these parts as a sensitive collaborator with such singers as Phyllis Bryn-Julson. But anyone who's heard Markham play the incredibly difficult piano parts of such composers as Shulamit Ran and Charles Wuorinen knows that he's a virtuoso with technique and temperament to spare. This Saturday at 8 p.m. in Shriver Concert Hall, with the Hopkins Symphony and conductor Jed Gaylin, Markham's many Baltimore fans will get a chance to hear him perform a full-fledged, bravura solo work: Prokofiev's popular Piano Concerto No. 3. The all-Russian program also includes Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4. Tickets are $5 and $6, and free (( parking is available on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus. For more information, call (410) 516-6542.
