WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT THAT A great way to end the work week and kick off a three-day weekend would be an event at the Baltimore Convention Center? Dozens of folks made that discovery Friday night at the Third Annual Jazz Soiree, the kick-off party to the 13th annual Black Heritage Art Show. They could sip a little wine as they wandered the aisles of the art show, chatting with different artists and vendors. "We want people to unwind. But we also want people to see everything this show has to offer," said the show's founder and organizer, Glenda Boone.

New York - "America was a continent removed from world history for thousands of years, and this tremendous isolation explains the uniqueness of its creations." So writes Nobel Prize winner Octavio Paz in his introduction to "Mexico: Splendors of Thirty Centuries" at New York's Metropolitan Museum (through Jan. 13). And from the moment one encounters this truly monumental show's first work of art, a seated Olmec figure at least 2,500 years old, uniqueness and isolation seem peculiarly apt words for this art.Among the strengths of Mexican pre-Columbian art is its integrity.
