2 Hot Art Chicks

The lowdown -- In a pluralistic art world, there's plenty of room for out-of-the-ordinary artworks imbued with a Baltimore aesthetic. Lisa Marie's realistic Irish landscapes, decorative furniture embellished with figures and forest creatures, and hand-painted screens, all on view at 2 Hot Art Chicks in Hampden, don't fit into any neat category, but they are lots of fun. This is the first show this year for the gallery that opened last year and has just inaugurated monthly exhibitions. There will be Irish music at the opening tonight from 6 to 9. The show runs through March 31.

If you go -- 2 Hot Art Chicks gallery is at 820 W. 36th St. 410-235-1888.
