Frank Smith's colorful, abstract fabric quilts and scrolls, on view at Sub-Basement Artist Studios, have the clever, syncopated rhythms and joyous visual spontaneity of the jazz improvisations that inspired them. In the 1970s, Smith was a founding member of the Chicago-based black arts group AFRICOBRA, or African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists, whose goal was to create a distinctive aesthetic based on African-American history and culture.

The 19th-century stone mansion for sale on Elkton's Main Street offers an impressive list of features: numerous bedrooms and baths, as well as six fireplaces. But there's much more: a fully appointed wedding chapel filled with decades of memories — and even some reservations for next Valentine's Day. Owners Frank and Barbara Smith hope a buyer will retain the chapel, the last remnant of the bustling marriage business that once defined this town on Maryland's northern border. But they also realize that the site, across the street from the Cecil County courthouse, would be a prime location for lawyers' offices.

Barbara and Frank Smith understand a couple in love's urge to get married quickly. They eloped themselves seven years ago. More than that, though, quick - but tasteful - weddings are their business. At the Historic Little Wedding Chapel in Elkton, they marry more than 300 couples a year, keeping alive a tradition that once made the little town the "Marriage Capital of the World." Until 1938, when Maryland first imposed a two-day waiting period on weddings, Elkton - close by both Pennsylvania and Delaware - was the East Coast's quick-marriage destination: There were more than a dozen chapels, and many ministers, innkeepers and even taxi drivers earned a living from the more than 12,000 weddings a year.

The Rev. Frank Smith looks like the Maytag repairman as he waits for the phone to ring in the Little Wedding Chapel in Elkton. The antiquated chapel is empty, a loud kind of empty. Yesterday, oh, what I'd give for yesterday, fills the chapel as a guy sings Tony Bennett's "When Joanna Loved Me" on the boom box in the six-pew chapel. Newspaper articles in the foyer still boast that Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and Billie Holiday were married quick and easy in Elkton a long time ago. After the turn of the 20th century, the chapel was one of several that made Elkton the "Marriage Capital of the World."
