Artist Mia Wiener embroiders provocative images on white linen because she's fascinated by the intimate nature of textiles and by the way that most people take them for granted. Emily C-D creates collages in her native Baltimore and also in Mexico from materials that other people throw away: discarded newspapers, bottle tops, string, and old pots and pans. And Ashley Minner crafts nearly life-size portraits of Baltimore's Native-American Lumbee community that revel in the beauty and strength of the people with whom she grew up. The women are part of the generation that will determine the form that the visual arts will take here in the future and are being highlighted in "Thirty: 30 Creative Minds Under 30," a group of 10 gallery talks sponsored by Maryland Art Place . The trio have been selected to present their artwork in the debut presentation on Wednesday; the remaining nine events will take place roughly once a month.

BOYS AND GIRLS dressed in white clothes and paper hats, with 4-H green neckerchiefs, leading livestock in and out of the ring.The smells of fresh pork barbecue and other country foods in the breeze. Strains of music drifting from the barns, and folks meeting in small groups to chat and catch up on a year's worth of news.These are the sights and sounds of the Carroll County 4-H and FFA Fair, which continues through Saturday. It's one of the few nationwide that retains the flavor of a good ol' country fair.

Deidre Scherer employs the traditions of drawing, painting and fiber art to create her own art form: pictures of people made entirely of pieces of patterned cloth sewn together.Her method of working requires creativity and a high degree of technical skill. And in choosing the aged as her subject matter, she works with great sincerity to foster appreciation of old age and its accumulated knowledge of life. So one can certainly admire her current show at the Baltimore Museum of Art, but not without reservation, for these images suffer from a communication problem: They try too hard.

STEVEN SCOTT GALLERY515 N. Charles St. "The New Romanticism."Like 19th century Romantic painters and poets, the artists whose works are presented here (through June 29) have abandoned the confines of the studio to seek their inspiration in nature. Baltimoreans Tom Miller and Philip Koch, and New Yorkers Wolf Kahn and April Gornik are among the 24 neo-romantics featured. Gallery owner Steven Scott says "all the scenes have a sense of infinity to them. You can see out forever and ever." The artists use wide vistas, sometimes landscapes and occasionally cityscapes, to create a sense of drama -- and at least one, William Lesch, uses artificially colored light to give a desert scene an almost surreal quality.

RECITAL PULLING THE STRINGS The acoustic, classical guitar is one of the most seductive instruments in the world, and Sharon Isbin knows how to get the most out of it. The much-recorded artist will give a recital Saturday to open the Baltimore Classical Guitar Society's 20th anniversary season. Prominent contemporary composers have written works for Isbin, including three who will be featured on her Baltimore program -- Tan Dun, Leo Brouwer and John Duarte. The latter's Joan Baez Suite will find Isbin exploring arrangements of "House of the Rising Sun," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"
