Opening exhibit

The University of Maryland Art Associates presented "Children of the World" as its inaugural exhibit at the University of Maryland's new $32 million Health Sciences and Human Service Library. There was much fanfare at the opening reception, with more than 500 people attending to get a look at the Baltimore campus' new building and the photo exhibit and to meet Baltimore's world-traveling photographer Patricia Lion Krongard.

It was during her travels to England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Iceland, Vietnam and India that Krongard captured the wonderful faces of children.

On hand to celebrate the opening of the exhibit with her was her son, Tim Krongard; her sister, Margot Lion, a well-known New York playwright; Tom Burdette, a family friend; Don Gifford, dean of the university's law school; and David and Anne Ramsay (he's president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore). The exhibit can be seen through Jan. 6, 1999.

Party planners for the New Children's Hospital gala decided to take guests to New Orleans for a night of Mardi Gras festivities. As they gathered in the hospital's Bennett Institute for cocktails and dinner, beaded and bejeweled guests were greeted by the hospital's first couple, president Robert Chrzan and his wife, Gail.

Dr. Stacy Lesley chaired this year's gala. The money raised will go toward the Marion Shriver Abel Fund, which will promote the growth of alternative medicine at the Baltimore hospital. Abel, who died last year of complications from breast cancer, was the daughter of Sam and Margot Shriver (he's president and chair of the hospital board) and the sister of tennis star Pam Shriver.

Members of the Governor's Commission on Hispanic Affairs joined friends and family members recently at Martin's West for the group's seventh annual awards gala. Recipients of the awards were movers and shakers in the Hispanic community.

The event, which attracted several hundred people from all over the state, was chaired by Ana Downs and Gloria Brennan.

Among those at the dinner were Mayda Colon Tsaknis, chair of the commission; Raphael Santini, commission vice-chair; and Dr. Estela Gonzales, commission member.

This year's honorees were Dr. Esther Edery Dibos, a pediatrician; Alfredo D. Echeverria, an architect and town planner; Nicolas Gomez, a Cuban-born American who is an immigrants-rights advocate; Luis Hurtado, a member of the Montgomery County Police Department; and Bill Shertenlieb, an advocate for migrant children and their families.
