She later followed him to San Francisco when he was on the faculty of the California School of Fine Arts.

One way to counter the heat is with a jolt of cool contemporary art, and exhibits at two commercial venues — C. Grimaldis Gallery in Mount Vernon, Jordan Faye Contemporary in Federal Hill — conveniently provide such relief. For good measure, the Jordan Faye gallery is also throwing a block party Saturday afternoon. "That seemed like a great summer thing to do," says founder and owner Jordan Faye Block. This sort of gesture has helped make the gallery a good fit for the neighborhood since opening 11 months ago in a handsome 1880s building that originally housed a branch of the Enoch Pratt Library.

The merest touch is enough to give away the true artist, and Bryan Hunt shows himself to be one over and over in the show of his drawings, paintings and sculpture at Galerie Francoise.Hunt is primarily a sculptor, and may be remembered for his cascading bronze called "The Cloak of Lorenzo" in the recent show "Going for Baroque" at the Walters Art Gallery. At Galerie Francoise, sculpture is limited to two small pedestal works, but we don't feel cheated. The paintings and drawings offer a grand sufficiency of rewards.

Since at least Rembrandt's time, people have prized the fine prints of great artists nearly as much as their paintings, drawings and sculpture. More affordable, and therefore more accessible, printmaking allowed artists to reach out to audiences who might otherwise never get a chance to see their works. At the same time, printmaking let artists experiment with their materials in ways that would be impractical in any other media. So it's not surprising that Robert Mangold, a contemporary master who was a pioneer in the development of minimalism and conceptual art during the 1960s, is today as involved with printmaking as he is in creating the rigorously precise geometric paintings for which he is famous.

Of Jasper Johns' eight works in the Baltimore Museum of Art's just-opened print show, perhaps "Untitled (Ruler) II" (1969) best shows how Johns has managed to anticipate or embrace so much of what contemporary art has been about and still remain so completely himself.It consists of a black ground, on which are the image of a ruler and the streaks created by the scraping of the ruler across the ground. From a distance, the image is abstract and has much of the intensity and dynamism of Grace Hartigan's two nearby abstract expressionist lithographs.

This month will see no less than three important exhibitions of one of Baltimore's most distinguished painters. Grace Hartigan, who came to Baltimore from New York in the 1960s, is showing her most recent oils and watercolors at C. Grimaldis Gallery. And both the ACA Galleries in New York City and the Neuberger Museum of Art at the State University of New York in Purchase have organized major retrospectives of her work. Hartigan, who established her reputation in New York during the 1950s, has been called a second-generation Abstract Expressionist, though the term doesn't quite seem to fit her. The first-generation Ab-Exers, like Jackson Pollock, Clyfford Still and Barnett Newman, created the characteristic style of "all-over" paintings that were largely non-representational and in which no part of the canvas was any more important than another.

NEW YORK - Today's grand reopening of the Museum of Modern Art in completely renovated quarters that include a spectacular new wing by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi does more than vastly increase the floor space of that venerable institution. The $858 million project - including $425 million for construction costs - is also a concrete expression of how the museum interprets its mission as home to the world's pre-eminent collection of modern art, and a statement of how it will balance the art of our own time with that of the early modernist period that gave MoMA its original reason for being.
