Pat Oleszko suits up for a performance at Maryland Institute College of Art on Tuesday. Oleszko is known for her elaborate costumes - which can include high-heeled shoes shaped like little old women, a bodysuit shaped like a board and saw, and an outfit that looks like a musical note. Some are racy, and many have bold primary colors. The works resemble a Macy's Day Parade gone awry.
The performance and talk start at 7 p.m. and are at MICA's Brown Center, 1301 Mount Royal Ave. Call 410-225-2300 or visit www.mica.edu. The show is free.

A miniature pottery wheel will be set up for people to use at the Rockfield Manor Barn this weekend for the Pottery at the Barn show. The idea is to give people a sense of exactly how difficult it is to throw a pot. About 15 Maryland ceramic artists will display their own pots and sculptures. The event is sponsored by the Harford Artists Association.
The show will be 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Rockfield Manor Barn is at 501 Churchville Road in Bel Air. Call 410-638-4565.
There will be more than 500 vintage posters on display at Renaissance Fine Arts. The subjects include ads for liquor, food, electronics and pens. Also expect entertainment-themed posters - including a show bill from the Moulin Rouge. Posters date from the late 1800s to present day. Prices range from $200 to $15,000.
The works go up tomorrow and will be there until April 11.
Renaissance Fine Arts is at 1809 Reisterstown Road. Hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Call 410-484-8900.
