Art league plans annual juried exhibit in December


September 25, 1998|By Lourdes Sullivan | Lourdes Sullivan,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

IT'S THAT time of year again: The Patuxent Art League is preparing for its seventh Open Juried Art Exhibition at the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel.

The rules are simple. Adult artists are invited to submit one or two works of art suitable for hanging on a wall.

The work must be original, mounted, no larger than 41 by 36 inches, weigh less than 40 pounds and must not have been exhibited at the center. Artists can drop off the work on the second floor of the center Dec. 1.

All work is assumed to be offered for sale. There is a $15 hanging fee for artists whose work is accepted.

Chevy Chase watercolor artist Margaret Kranking is this year's juror. She will select the work for the exhibition and award six prizes.

The exhibition will run through December. The Patuxent Art League will collect a 25 percent commission on any work that is sold.

The exhibit opens Dec. 5, with a reception and awards ceremony Dec. 6.

Information or entry forms: Donna Aldridge, 301-779-5440 or 301-927-5999.

Join the Scouts

Children and young adults from North Laurel who are looking for a great time with other like-minded folks are invited to join the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

Call Karen Allen at 301-490-3272 to join the Girl Scouts. Those living along Gorman Road may call Dot Brownlie at 301-490-9244.

Call Mauricio Peredo at 301-317-4811 to join the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts plan to meet at the new Gorman Crossing Elementary School in Laurel.

Volunteers sought

Forest Ridge Elementary is looking for volunteers to work in the media center.

The Forest Ridge media center should be an interesting place this year. Karen Fedderly -- recently one of the children's librarians at the Savage library -- is a librarian at the school.

She and the other librarians at the Savage branch presented some of the most interesting programs the branch had seen -- Fedderly once dressed up as Mrs. Frile of the "Magic School Bus" series for a library program.

Senior activities

The pace is picking up at the Savage Senior Center.

Edith Bennett has announced activities for next month.

A trip to Toby's dinner theater is planned Oct. 14, and a trip to the Golden Corral restaurant and shopping area in Hagerstown is set Oct. 23.

The Savage Trailblazers is offering trips to several out-of-state resorts: to Dover Downs on Oct. 15, to Midway, Del., on Nov. 4 and to Atlantic City, N.J., on Nov. 30. Most of the trips include a buffet lunch.

The center has invited Chuck Cave, candidate for sheriff, to lunch Oct. 19.

Howard County Executive Charles I. Ecker will join the seniors for lunch Oct. 27.

The Savage Homemakers will meet Oct. 8, when Madeline Green will speak on "Gifts from the Kitchen."

The Sit and Stitch group meets 10 a.m. to 2: 30 p.m. Fridays and makes items for area nursing homes.

Line-dancing classes are scheduled Tuesdays, "Active Aerobics" on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and bingo on Mondays.

Children's bazaar

A children's bazaar will be held in the Forest Ridge Elementary School parking lot tomorrow.

Come from 9 a.m. to noon to buy lightly used children's items -- clothes, shoes, musical instruments, furnishings and toys.

The rain date is Oct. 3.

Savage Mill Manor tour

As you plan the evening's activities, keep in mind that -- as part of Howard County Heritage Week -- the old Savage Mill Manor will be open to the public for a brief tour from 6 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m. today.

See what is in store for this elegant site dominating Baltimore Street. Tickets are $3.

The house is the big white one at the end of the street.
