Seems like there's no such thing as a time of year in Havre de Grace that isn't busy with preparations for, clean-ups after or the actual celebration of some sort of festival. The city boasts a first rate Fourth of July parade and fireworks, as well as a seafood festival, its annual Decoy Festival, a related Duck Fair, a Children's Arts Festival, a Christmas Candlelight Tour of buildings and homes, and a few others, including some that have come and gone over the years. Aside from the Fourth of July, which is celebrated everywhere in some way shape or form, the event in Havre de Grace that made the others suddenly seem plausible had some rather auspicious beginnings a half a century ago, the Havre de Grace Art Show.

One artist began to paint after her mother was murdered by her brother when she was 14 years old. As an adult, she's obsessed with drawing circles, a infinite shape that begins but never ends. Another woman, also a painter, depicts barrier after barrier: wooden fences and chain-link fences, closed doors and shutters. But she also depicts the air pockets between those metal links and the holes in the slabs, rendering not just the impediments but a way through them. A third thinks of herself as a builder, someone who makes things.

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.

"We are thrilled to welcome this charming painting back to the museum, to reintroduce it to the people of Baltimore and to reunite it with the many masterpieces from Saidie May's collection," museum director Doreen Bolger said in a news release.

A few weeks ago, the Havre de Grace Art Show celebrated its 50th annual incarnation, and this weekend the Bel Festival of the Arts will mark its 48th year. The two events are evidence of the enduring practicality of art in everyday life. It is easy to be critical of events like the two shows. Certainly the Million Dollar Mile aspect of the Havre de Grace show, which sought to showcase world class fine art in the city half a century ago, has faded as folk art and crafts have taken center stage.
