Miniatures exhibit

If good things come in small packages, there are sure to be some treasures at the "Small, Smaller, Smallest: Adults' Delights, Children's Enchantments" exhibit at the Homewood House Museum Saturday.

More than 100 pieces of miniature furniture, categorized as small (child-size), smaller (doll-size) and smallest (dollhouse-size), are on display throughout the period rooms, reception hall and back halls of the house. Curated by Jennifer Goldsborough, the exhibit features the work of several craftsmen, including Baltimore furniture maker Enrico Liberti.

The exhibit opens at the Homewood House Museum, Johns Hopkins University campus, 3400 N. Charles St., Saturday and runs through March 29. Hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $6; $5 seniors; $3 students. Future miniatures construction classes, a miniatures symposium and a miniatures craft fair are planned. Call 410-516-5589. Enjoy a lively introduction to classical music that the kids will love on Sunday at the Smith Theatre at Howard Community College. The Saslav Duo -- pianist Ann Saslav and violinist Isidor Saslav -- presents "Adventures with the Violin and Piano," an entertaining and engaging musical program for all ages.

The duo performs excerpts from familiar classics to a bit of jazz and ragtime, with humor and audience participation. Candlelight Concerts' Performing Arts Series for Children sponsors the performance.

The program is offered at 2 p.m. and 3: 30 p.m. Sunday at the Smith Theatre, Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway in Columbia. Tickets are $6. Call 410-715-0034 or 301-596-6203.
