Rembrandt etchings

His eyes might not have aligned correctly (or so says Harvard neurobiologist Margaret S. Livingstone), but 17th-century Dutch artist Rembrandt is part of the Western artistic canon.

Thirty of his etchings will be on display Monday through Nov. 7 in the F. Ross Jones Building at the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus. The works are from a private collection.

The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily except Oct. 31.

The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus is at 3400 N. Charles St. Call 410-516-6705.

The art of politics

Are you disappointed Maryland isn't a swing state? Then barrel on down to see Wrong War, Right Protest: Artists Speak Out on War and Politics, which opens Wednesday at the Schiavone Edward Contemporary Art Gallery. The show is up through Nov. 6.

A cadre of lefty artists will display works protesting the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. Some works are billed as humorous, others earnest.

The Schiavone Edward Contemporary Art Gallery is at 244 S. Highland Ave. Call 410-534-2212 for hours and additional information.

Korean watercolors

On the other hand, if you'd rather escape politics altogether, we'd advise a trip to see the Korean watercolors at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. The works portray traditional costumes worn in Korean provinces.

The show goes up tomorrow and will be on display until Dec. 5. The paintings are believed to be the work of one artist, but they are all unsigned and undated. They were bought in the Far East by Rear Adm. John R. Edwards of Pottsville, Pa., about 1886.

The museum is at 91 Key St. in Hagerstown. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays; 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays; 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Sundays. Call 301-739-5727. - Annie Linskey
