November 04, 1998|By Heather Tepe | Heather Tepe,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

SLAYTON HOUSE Gallery in the Wilde Lake Village Green will be the venue for the sixth "Wilde and Wonderful" artisans' sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 14.

"Wilde and Wonderful" is a one-day sale of traditional and contemporary art and crafts presented by "Bravo!" -- a Columbia-based cooperative of artisans.

Items for sale this year will include tableware, furniture, pottery, prints, clothing and jewelry.

Participating west Columbia artists are quilter Patricia Ciricillo, weaver Lucy Kerewsky and jewelry designer Mary Kay Sigaty.

Nichole Hickey will show hand-painted glassware, and Marlyn Perin will show painted floor cloths.

" 'Wilde and Wonderful' trans- forms our community center into a crafts gallery for the day," said Bernice Kish, village manager and director of the gallery.

"This event is different from a traditional craft show because the artisans' work is displayed as it would be at an art gallery," she added.

This year, the artists will again donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale to support arts events at Slayton House.

Come browse, meet the artists, share some refreshments and get a jump on the Christmas season.

Information: 410-730-3987.

Caravan arrives

The Howard County Friends of Latin America and the Caribbean will sponsor a potluck dinner at 7 p.m. Friday at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center, 10431 Twin Rivers Road, Columbia.

The dinner will welcome a caravan organized by Pastors for Peace -- an organization that educates the public about and provides aid to a number of countries in Central America and the Caribbean.

The caravan -- which consists of a dozen large vehicles -- is traveling through 50 cities, holding educational meetings and collecting funds and additional participants.

It will deliver emergency relief aid, including funds to purchase food, to Nicaragua and the Mexican state of Chiapas.

The Rev. Lucius Walker Jr., executive director of Pastors for Peace, will speak about the situation in Nicaragua and Chiapas after the dinner, at 8 p.m.

Walker, who was wounded in a Nicaraguan contra attack as he led a delegation to the Atlantic Coast region in 1988, founded the organization in response to the attack.

The group, which has delivered aid to Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Chiapas and Cuba, is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Information: 410-740-1231 or 410-381-4899.

Presidential scholar

Laura Douglas has been named Presidential Scholar at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa.

The presidential scholarship is a merit-based award given by the college. Winners receive a $5,000 scholarship renewable for each of three subsequent years at the college.

Douglas, a 1998 graduate of Wilde Lake High School, is the daughter of Doug and Karen Douglas.

Paper, fabric, paint

Estela Rotondaro will exhibit her recent collages and mixed-media pieces tomorrow through Nov. 28 at Slayton House Gallery.

The Clary's Forest resident, originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, uses Japanese paper, fabric, paint and other materials in her art.

She prefers abstract forms, she said, because it provides her "with the possibility of expressing with total freedom what I see and what I want to say in my own personal way," she said.

An opening reception will be from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Information: 410-730-3987.

Hospital gala

In celebration of Howard County General Hospital's 25th anniversary and the return of Johns Hopkins Medicine to the Howard County community, the hospital will hold its 25th anniversary gala, The Fantasy Ball, at 6: 30 p.m. Nov. 14.

The black-tie gala will be held at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore.

Entertainment will be provided by Le Masquerade and Mood Swings Big Band.

Chairwoman Tina Broccolino has been assisted by a committee of 78 people in planning the gala.

West Columbia committee members include Debbie Daskaloff, Pam Karwan, Vivian Bailey, Anne Barker, Judy Brown, Peggy Ecker, Lenore Gelfman, Joan Henry, Andrea Minutoli, Linda Odum, Janet Oken, Carole Parnes, Beverly White-Seales, Sharon Akers, Liz Buckley and Regina Ford.

Proceeds will be designated for equipment and furnishings for an expanded unit for labor, delivery and recovery and a special-care nursery for premature and critically ill newborns.

Howard County General Hospital was founded as Columbia Hospital and Clinic Foundation -- a joint project of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Connecticut General Life Insurance Co.

The hospital was reorganized one year later as Howard County General Hospital and is now known as Howard County General Hospital: A Member of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
