Art houses

It is too early for spring cleaning, but roughly 100 city rowhouses will be spruced up Saturday as part of an art exhibit called Picture Window. Artists from Baltimore and elsewhere have contributed panels that will be nailed to vacant properties all over the city. Forty of them will be in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. The panels will remain up until they wash (or walk) away.

An opening reception for "Picture Window" takes place from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at Area 405 gallery, 405 E. Oliver St.

Words of love

Listen to love poems at Gallery 1448 on Saturday. Works will be read by Mark Coburn, Cinder Hypki, Julie Fisher and others. After listening to the words, lovers can peruse the gallery's current exhibit, Erotica '05.

Gallery hours are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Gallery 1448 is at 1448 E. Baltimore St. Call 410-327-1554 or visit Annie Linskey
