`On the Light Side: Art That Makes Us Smile'

Whimsical and tongue-in-cheek works by nine local artists go on display today at the Carroll Arts Center. They include cartoons, tea kettles and funny, abstract art. One example is Elizabeth Morisette's "Sticky Basket," made from colorful plastic drink stirrers.

"We in the art world try to be so serious about art and interpret its deeper meaning," said visual arts coordinator Susan Williamson. "Sometimes you just have to smile. Summer is a great time to do that."

The Carroll Arts Center's On the Light Side: Art That Makes Us Smile opens today and runs through Aug. 5. There will be a reception 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. today. The center is at 91 W. Main St., Westminster. Information: 410-848-7272 or
