Judging by the sprawling yet solid show that opens today at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the seven finalists in this year's Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize competition are all such top-tier talents that choosing a winner will be a serious challenge.

Selected from a field of 320 applicants, the finalists are sculptor Richard Cleaver, photographer Frank Hallam Day, animator Eric Dyer, artist/musician Geoff Grace, conceptual artist Baby Martinez, painter Tony Shore and video artist Karen Yasinsky. The winner of the $25,000 prize will be announced July 13.

If you go The Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize Finalists: Artscape at the BMA runs through Aug. 5 at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive. Call 443-573-1700 or go to artbma.org.
