Anthony Caro exhibit

British sculptor Anthony Caro will make an appearance at the C. Grimaldis Gallery tomorrow for the opening of a new exhibit featuring his work.

The exhibit celebrates Caro's 80th birthday in conjunction with galleries in New York, Amsterdam and London. The display features table pieces made from steel with various finishings.

Considered to be one of the world's greatest living sculptors, Caro's first solo exhibition at the Grimaldis Gallery was in 1985. Tomorrow night's opening reception for Anthony Caro: A Survey is also the U.S. introduction of a new book on Caro's work, and the sculptor and author will be on hand to sign copies.

The reception will run from 6 p.m.-8 p.m., while the exhibit will be open through next month. Admission to the gallery is free. The C. Grimaldis Gallery is at 523 N. Charles St. Call 410-539-1080.

The reading is free and open to the public and will be held in the Hall at Brown Center, 1301 Mount Royal Ave. The event begins at 7 p.m. Call 410-225-2300 or visit www.
