COMING UP

Experience a little creative randomness on Saturday, when ANTIMATTER: A Multiperformance Event comes to CHELA gallery in Baltimore. ANTIMATTER was created by performance / poet Ric Royer, who has been compiling tasks drawn from a variety of source material relating to such figures as Mata Hari, William James Sidis (child prodigy / supermarket cashier) and Stanley Milgrim (social scientist) into a box. Participants in the event -- a combination of performances, visual-art pieces, installations / sculpture, live music, readings and all manner of mixed media -- pick an assignment from the box, create something based on it and bring it to the location. Sounds like something you'll have to see for yourself.

CHELA Gallery is at 3500 Boston St. No. 210. The gallery opens at 6 p.m., and ANTIMATTER performances begin at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.chelagallery.org.

NOW OR NEVER

Tropical Storm Isabel may have disrupted many Baltimore Book Festival events, but the exhibit Ten Page Books Made by Artists survived and will be celebrated in a reception tonight.

The reception will take place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Contemporary Museum (100 W. Centre St.) in conjunction with the First Thursdays Concert in the Park. Editions of 10 "Ten Page Books" created by local, regional and national artists will be for sale at the reduced price of $2. In addition, attendees can purchase Baltimore Book Festival T-shirts and posters by Chevelle Makeba Moore Jones.
