One of Baltimore's newest art galleries is 929, which opened at 929 S. Charles St. in September. It's run by two families, the Stratmanns and Liparinis, who have long wanted to have a gallery and purchased the building earlier this year. According to one of the principals, Shawn Stratmann, the gallery will show work in all media and strive to keep its prices affordable. Future shows include one of works by members of the local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Artists, and another of works by Maryland Institute, College of Art graduates.

In one print, the silos at Millersville's Kinder Farm Park are represented in countless tiny dots in shades of gray. Across the hallway, the Bay Bridge is silhouetted against a sky with blazing colors of red, orange and yellow. And upstairs, foreboding blue storm clouds gather over the water. Dozens of prints of all types - lithographs, woodcuts, etchings - cover the walls of the Willow Gallery at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, the latest show from the busy artists in Anne Arundel Community College's printmaking club.

Go to the usual exhibit and you'll visualize how the artwork hanging on the gallery wall would look hanging on your living room wall. An exhibit installed at both the Columbia Art Center and Howard Community College, "Wear Art," encourages one to contemplate how women would look wearing the exhibited clothing and jewelry. Although this Columbia Festival of the Arts-connected exhibit includes its share of whimsical creations, everything is functional. One might not be inclined to wear these items while mowing the lawn, but they'd make a lady look fashionably distinctive for a night on the town.

When Cynthia McBride moved her art gallery to its current location in Annapolis more than two decades ago, she was worried that customers wouldn't be able to find the business. McBride Gallery, which specializes in classical-style paintings, had relocated to 215 Main St., just a block from its original space. But McBride was so concerned she rallied the owners of other local galleries to put on an art walk to spread the news and showcase their offerings. "It was a lazy, hazy road at that time," she said with a laugh.

The concept behind the new Ruxton gallery and shop, V Fashion Towson/My Town Art Gallery, was born in the most unlikely of places: years ago, on the sidelines of a club lacrosse game. Watching her now-grown daughters play lacrosse, Valerie Heneberry was struck by a desire to celebrate her fun, active lifestyle. She knew her husband, artist Patrick Reid O'Brien, was up for the job -- and that she could help. O'Brien draws on his art education and a career in advertising to create Pop Art-inspired prints that celebrate that good life.

A two-alarm fire in Remington Wednesday night did not damage any of the artwork in the Open Space gallery, tenant Max Guy said on Thursday afternoon. Organizers, with community help, were moving the artwork into storage Thursday. Guy is the curator of "Solitary Stones on a Rocky Shore," which was scheduled to debut at Open Space on Friday. The Open Space website describes "Solitary Stones" as "large-scale graphite drawings and monumental concrete sculpture by Miranda Pfeiffer and Ledelle Moe. " Guy says the exhibition has been postponed until further notice.

Annapolis police were looking yesterday for a man who stole a $2,100 bronze horse from a well-known city art gallery. The thief was the only person in the McBride Gallery on Main Street at 7 p.m. Thursday and was "walking around in a manner that [the owner] wouldn't see him," according to the police report. After he slipped out, gallery owner Cynthia McBride immediately noticed that the 12-inch statue of a horse by artist Sandy Scott was missing from the front room. Judy Brick, a manager at the gallery, said thefts are rare and losing the horse felt a bit like losing a member of the family.

Artists looking for a place to display their work can do so for one day at the Maryland Art Place. For a contribution of $10, you can bring one ready-to-hang art work in any media, measuring 40 X 40 inches or less, to the gallery, where it will become part of the annual Out of Order benefit exhibition. All artists must do their own installation, but MAP provides the nails and hooks. There is one day set aside for installation -- artists can stop by between 7 a.m. and midnight on April 2. It's first-come, first-served in terms of location in the gallery (and, for sculptors, in terms of available pedestals)

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.

You may have heard that Ocean City boardwalk landmark Ocean Gallery is packing up and moving to Hollywood, but don't book that flight to Los Angeles quite yet. Owner Joe KroArt explains that he's been in talks for nearly five years with various television producers in an effort to create a reality TV show centered on the gallery. After going back and forth with a number of pitches, one idea kind of floated to the top: a show that would follow his team as they relocated the beloved 50-year icon from Ocean City to Hollywood.

When saying goodbye, weeping can come with the territory. In its own way, the party-starting Baltimore rap duo AK Slaughter knows this painfully well. At a recent cover shoot for their forthcoming and final EP, “It's Not You ... It's Us,” Emily Slaughter and Aran Keating hoped to depict the aftermath of a break-up. They wanted to truly cry for the full effect, but an onion they sliced failed to produce tears. So the two friends improvised. “So then Aran takes the onion juice and puts it against his eyeball,” Slaughter, who described the shoot as “exhausting,” said outside of the Bell Foundry performance space in Station North last week.

Names are not what they seem for the Baltimore rock quintet Vinny Vegas. Start with the band's name: It is not the alter ego of lead singer Scott Siskind, but rather an obscure reference to a professional wrestler from the early '90s. Then there's the title of the group's debut album, November's “The Big White Whale,” whose vinyl release will be celebrated at a Vinny Vegas-headlining show at Metro Gallery on Saturday. Despite cover art that depicts a diver next to a massive whale, Siskind said the title has nothing to do with Herman Melville's novel.

Ellicott City 's Main Street has long attracted antique collectors and boutique shoppers. Now, it also draws skateboarders. “The skateboarding community really needed a local shop,” says Tim LeBon, owner of the new The Good Roll Shop & Gallery. “And Main Street needed a little more testosterone on the street.” LeBon, who hosts monthly art shows in his shop, is also working on a “Guys Night” companion to the “Ladies Night” First-Friday shopping event on Main Street with music and food.

The All Member Summer Show at the Artists' Gallery is likely to welcome a lot of visitors this weekend, because the gallery's American City Building address places it right next to the free Lakefest Celebration marking the start of the Columbia Festival of the Arts. That's why the gallery has a weekend schedule including a reception for the indoor art exhibit, as well as a distinct outdoor sidewalk art sale and art-making demonstration. Among the varied subjects and styles on view in the All Member Summer Show, some of the best pieces are nature studies that are sensitive to how the time of day affects the appearance of a landscape.

Jorden Nye, co-owner of South Baltimore's Nye Gomez Gallery, is leaving the gallery as of Tuesday to resume working for the Internal Revenue Service.He has been with the gallery since October 1991, when he took over co-ownership from Gary Knight, one of the first two owners with Walter Gomez.Mr. Nye said yesterday that his reason for leaving was basically economic. Despite the gallery's success, with 1992 art sales up almost 40 percent over 1991, "the reality is that for the foreseeable future it will be difficult for it to support two owners with a decent salary."

Of the three photographers showing at the Knight Gomez Gallery this month, Jennifer Bishop is the most journalistic in her approach. This is hardly a surprise considering that her work has been featured in the City Paper for more than a decade.Bishop's travels in this country and abroad have resulted in many on-the-road shots that juxtapose the ordinary and the unexpected. In a photo shot in Arizona, for instance, the barren desert is broken by an elevated automobile being used to advertise an auto parts company.

Metro Meteor, whose abstract paintings rapidly are becoming an art world sensation, might be just a horse. And the 11-year-old bay, like all equines, has a hard time distinguishing reds from greens or browns. Yet Metro's original watercolors have become the runaway favorite at a regional art gallery. He has racked up a combined $130,000 in sales for his paintings and, through a separate licensing agreement, a line of home-decorating products. "Metro is by far our best-selling artist," said Peggy Rock, the director of Gallery 30 in Gettysburg, Pa. There, the horse, who is stabled here in Frederick County, has sold 80 large paintings and 300 miniature works at prices ranging from $80 to $850.
