Starting on Saturday, the traveling exhibit of 17 contemporary artists will be showcased at the Carriage House Gallery, located on the Physick Estate. Co-sponsored by the Center for Community Arts and the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts, this show will feature a variety of art forms, from paintings to sculptures to collages to tapestries and more.

Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children ages 3-12. The show runs through April 11 and is at 1048 Washington St., Cape May. For more information, call 800-275-4278 or visit www.campmaymac.org.

Elvis appearance

Elvis will make an appearance in full leather pantsuit glory at Jordan's Rooftop Restaurant in Ocean City Saturday night at 9. The first Elvis sighting of 2004 will be in the form of Michael Hoover, an Elvis impersonator with more than 20 years of experience under his rhinestone belt. The event will kick off the restaurant's 2004 Rock and Roll Entertainment Series. Whether you come for the '50s-era costume or to hear old classics like "Hound Dog" and "Love Me Tender," a good time is expected for all.

Admission is $15. Jordan's Rooftop Restaurant is on the top floor of the Fenwick Inn at 138th Street and Coastal Highway, Ocean City. Call 410-250-1867.
