Handbell ensemble to perform tomorrow

The Westminster Ringers will hold its spring concert, "A Springtime Potpourri," at 7 p.m. tomorrow in the sanctuary of Westminster United Methodist Church.

The handbell ensemble will demonstrate a wide range of musical sounds and techniques as it performs original handbell compositions and handbell arrangements of familiar tunes from a variety of musical styles and composers.

The 14-member ensemble performs on five octaves of English handbells and five octaves of choirchimes. New members are accepted by audition.

Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for people older than 60 and children ages 5 to 12. Children younger than 5 will be admitted free.

Work by married artists on display at Arts Council

The Art of Lucida by a hus- band-wife artist team will be the featured exhibition from Wednesday through June 28 at the Carroll County Arts Council gallery.

An opening reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday in the gallery.

David Rehor and Amy McCuen Rehor of Westminster created the black-and-white photographs, collages and pencil drawings. Both are graduates of the Corcoran School of Art.

Amy Rehor is the owner of Lucida Fine Art, which specializes in handmade business cards. She also teaches at the Arts Council.

Her works explore existence in a nonsense world, combining colorful illustrations with sequins, beads, fabrics and textured papers to depict whimsical and often absurd figures and contraptions.

Most of David Rehor's photographs are hand-processed silver gelatin prints that capture time and light and document Amy from 1992 to 2001.

The gallery is at 15 E. Main St., Westminster. Information: 410-848-7272.
