Baltimore Watercolor Society presents regional juried 0) exhibition through July 9

The Baltimore Watercolor Society has been active since 1885, and is the third oldest organization of its kind in the United States. It is not restricted to citizens of Baltimore or even Maryland, and claims Andrew Wyeth as a one-time member. One of its activities is the annual Mid-Atlantic regional juried exhibition now on view at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions' Turner Auditorium. Open to artists residing between New York and Virginia, this year's regional includes "Choices," by society president Alice Webb. The exhibit continues through July 9 at Turner Auditorium, 720 Rutland Ave. For more information, call (410) 461-9243. One of the most spectacularly beautiful modern architectural spaces in Baltimore is the atrium of the award-winning F&G Life Building at 6225 Smith Ave. in Mount Washington. What could be better than to hear some of the greatest music of the 17th and 18th centuries performed on the harpsichord in such an ultramodern space? The Baltimore Architecture Foundation presents harpsichordist Frederick Hammond there in such a program today at 3 p.m. in its Great Music in Great Spaces series. Tickets are $15 and $18. For more information, call (410) 625-2587.

Stephen Wigler One of the biggest violin talents to emerge in this country in the 1970s was the dazzling Dylana Jenson, who took second prize in the 1978 Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition as a precocious 17-year-old and who followed that triumph with memorable recordings of the Sibelius Concerto and of Brahms sonatas. Jenson plays less now than she did -- she has been busy raising three children -- but other fiddlers say she's better than ever. She will give a recital today at 4 p.m. in St. Katherine's Church, Division and Presstman streets, in the Lois J. Wright Memorial Concert Series. Admission is free, but donations are accepted. For information, call (410) 296-9410 or (410) 296-9430.
