Escape to Oregon

November 27, 1997|By John Dorsey

Some think of art as a way to engage with life, to learn something about themselves and/or the world. Others want art to be an escape from personal problems and the contemporary hurly-burly. The second group will probably be drawn to Anne Marie Fleming's pastels of the Oregon countryside, now showing at the Steven Scott Gallery. Their feathery foliage, soft colors, placid waters and gentle, silvery light constitute an invitation to walk into their scenes, sit down under a tree and just daydream the afternoon away. Fleming was born in Washington, D.C., grew up in Hyattsville and graduated from the University of Maryland. But six years ago she visited Oregon, fell in love with its scenery and moved there.

At the Steven Scott Gallery, 515 N. Charles St., through Jan. 3. Noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For information, call 410-752-6218.
