History through lens

Marlin Fitzwater, press secretary to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, will talk on Sunday at the opening of the Moments in History exhibit at BayWoods of Annapolis. On display will be more than 40 pictures by the late photojournalist Henry D. Burroughs, who covered seven presidents and captured some of the most pivotal events in the mid-20th century. Fitzwater and Burroughs were close friends.

BayWoods is a continuing care facility. The event is 2:30 p.m.-5 p.m. Terence Smith, from NewsHour With Jim Lehrer, and Burroughs' widow, Peg, will also be there.

BayWoods of Annapolis is at 7101 Bay Front Drive, Annapolis. Call 410-263-7297.

Evergreen finale

The flatbed truck is moving out. Hundreds of plastic cups will no longer be affixed to the large tree in the back. The lacquered house is going elsewhere. The Sculpture at the Evergreen - a biannual exhibit at the Johns Hopkins Evergreen House - ends on Sunday.

To mark the closing, Boister (a Baltimore-based neo-cabaret band) will perform on Sunday at 5 p.m. The concert will be at Evergreen's Bakst Theater. Tickets are $12, and the price include wine and light munchies. Call for reservations.

The Evergreen House is at 4545 N. Charles St. Call 410-516-0341. For more information about the band, visit

Howard County in air

A new exhibit of watercolors by Bonita Glaser goes up Monday at the Artists' Gallery in Columbia. The pictures will look familiar to many - they depict Howard County landscapes. Glaser likes to work en plein air - many of these works were at least started outside in the rough. About 10 of her paintings will be in the show.

Also at the gallery, works of about a dozen other artists are on display. They include painted furniture, pottery, pastels, stained glass.

The Artists' Gallery is in the American City Building at 10227 Wincopin Circle in Columbia. Call 410-740-8249.
