John E. Sparks, an artist, educator and a nationally known printmaker who developed and chaired the department of printmaking at the Maryland Institute College of Art for nearly 40 years, died Aug. 2 of prostate cancer and pneumonia at Meritus Health Center in Hagerstown. The former longtime Charles Village resident was 69. "I respected John a great deal.

Just as ranchers brand their cattle to prevent losses or thefts, the "branding" of cars with an acid-etched, traceable code in as many places as possible will make it less attractive to thieves, police say. And tomorrow morning, in an event being co-sponsored by the Howard County police, the car-branding known as VIN-etching will be offered for free at a parking lot in Columbia. "This protects you against a professional thief," said Joe Asplen, vice president of the Maryland/DC Anti-Car Theft Committee, the other co-sponsor of tomorrow's event with Howard County police.

Gov. Martin O'Malleycontinued his national media blitz Tuesday night with an appearance on MSNBC's"The Ed Show," taking the opportunity to bash former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and the Republican budget plan authored by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. O'Malley dismissed Romney's easy victory in the Maryland primary, saying "Governor Etch A Sketch" was always expected to be the victor in the state.  Appearing on one of the left-leaning network's most aggressively liberal shows -- a program that attracts the type of Democratic activists who could help decide the 2016 presidential nomination race -- the Maryland governor praised President Obama's remarks Tuesday afternoon assailing the Ryan budget and Romney's endorsement of the plan.

Have you ever wondered how decorations are added to glass?Frederick Carder, the famous artist at the equally famous Steuben Glass Works, established an etching room about 1906. He had worked at Stevens & Williams in England.To make cameo glass, Carder sandwiched several layers of different-colored glass, and formed a bowl. A design was then acid-etched into the outer layer, leaving a design of one colored glass exposed over another colored glass.The design was "inked" on a paper and transferred to the glass bowl.

"I am haunted by characters, by images," writes Elisabeth Stevens, and 40 of those images are gathered in the exhibit "Word into Image: Visualizations of Fiction, Poetry and Other Imaginings" at the College of Notre Dame. Stevens, former art critic of The Sun, is a writer of short stories and poetry, and an artist who creates images to accompany her writing. The exhibit includes, from "Fire & Water: Six Stories," linoleum block prints with an occasionally expressionist feel, but also a humorous touch in the picture with the story "An Old Lover."

The summer show at C. Grimaldis Gallery is always a lively affair, being a recapitulation of artists we've come to know in previous exhibitions and an intriguing taste of what's in store when the fall season arrives. This year's show is as varied and elegant as ever, with many beautiful and poignant paintings by Grace Hartigan, Raoul Middleman, Eugene Leake and Henry Coe. Coe's modestly scaled landscapes of the French countryside, in particular, are marvels of pastoral quietude. A highlight of this show is two recent, large-scale color photographs by Athens-based artist Dimitra Lazaridou, whose virtuosic control of composition and color signals a major evolution in this gifted photographer's work.
