`Great Tokyo' exhibit

To the tranquillity of the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts comes an exhibit dedicated to destruction and the upheaval of new beginnings. Starting tomorrow, patrons can view a collection of woodblock prints by Koizumi Kishio titled One Hundred Pieces of Great Tokyo in the Showa Era From 1928 to 1940. The prints depict the 1923 earthquake that all but leveled the city and much of the eastern part of the nation. In vivid blues, yellows, reds and soft neutrals, the prints also show the city's rebuilding.

"One Hundred Pieces of Great Tokyo in the Showa Era From 1928 to 1940" is at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, 91 Key St., Hagerstown, tomorrow through Sept. 11. Museum hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Free. Call 301-739-5727 or visit

Natural and digital

Oh, the possibilities when you combine natural scenery, digital imagery and fresh coffee. Artist and musician Ann Schluederberg's work on display at Lakeside Coffee and Cafe -- in an exhibit called POSSIBILITIES -- is a combination of the natural and the digital. Computer-generated images of bright colors and abstract shapes share space with watercolor paintings of waterscapes from Centennial Lake in Columbia to Anna Maria Island near Florida.

"POSSIBILITIES" runs through Aug. 31 at Lakeside Coffee and Cafe in the lobby of the American City Building, 10227 Wincopin Circle, Columbia. Free. Cafe hours are 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. Call 410-772-3694.
