Hartigan's styles

New and old works by Baltimore artist Grace Hartigan will be on display at the C. Grimaldis Gallery starting Wednesday.

She's shifted styles a number of times, and this show will include works from all phases of her career.

There will be an opening reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. The show, Grace Hartigan: A Survey, will be on display through June 11.

The C. Grimaldis Gallery is at 523 N. Charles St. Hours are 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. Call 410-539-1080.

Ancient biowarfare

Biological warfare is nothing new - and that is the gist of a lecture that Dr. Adrienne Mayor will give Sunday at the Walters Art Museum. The talk, Poison Arrows and Scorpion Bombs: Biological Warfare in the Ancient World, will examine how our forebears used germs and chemicals to kill one another. Be sure to wear your biohazard suit.

The lecture will be at 2 p.m. Sunday. It is free with museum admission ($10 for adults). The Walters Art Museum is at 600 N. Charles St. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. second Fridays. Call 410-547-9000 or visit www.the walters.org.
