Herman Maril had two worlds, and each provided him what something the other lacked. The artist, who was born in Baltimore in 1908 and died here in 1986, spent his life painting some of the grittier aspects of the city. Invariably, his astute and affectionate eye discovered the aesthetic appeal of even the homeliest objects. But for nearly every summer of Maril's adult life, he took his family to the beach in Provincetown, Mass., filling canvases with the ever-changing interplay of water and light.

Herman Maril (1908-1986) was one of the most important 20th-century artists to live and work in Baltimore. A Maril exhibition is always a substantial event, and the show of 20 paintings and one drawing at Galerie Francoise is no exception. His landscapes and interiors combine modernist elements with traditional subject matter, reveal his mastery of color, and possess a timeless serenity that has a peaceful, calming effect on the viewer.Early in his career Maril was somewhat influenced by cubism, as evidenced by works such as 1955's "Midnight Snack" with its still life elements, its shallow space and its radically tilted table top almost as vertical as the surface of the canvas.

Back in 1978, Bylee Massey had an idea. Her husband, T. Benjamin Massey, had just become president of the University of Maryland University College, the state's higher-education institution for people in the work force. UMUC has 35,000 students worldwide, including 20,000 overseas and 15,000 in Maryland. Its headquarters are in College Park, and there it has an inn and conference center with spacious halls and acres of wall space. Back in 1978, the walls were pretty bare. As Mr. Massey remembers it, "My wife looked at the walls and said, 'My, this looks like a hospital.

Two Baltimore artists, Ralph McGuire and Herman Maril, are featured in two separate but related shows at University of Maryland University College. McGuire paints cityscapes, landscapes, beach scenes and related works such as "Lobsterman's Shacks," concentrating on the mid-Atlantic region, which is most familiar to him. McGuire was a student of Maril, represented by early works in "Herman Maril: Selections 1930-1950." This is the first show devoted to Maril's early works. Its more than 40 paintings all predate the works in the recent Maril show at Galerie Francoise and reflect the years of the Depression and World War II.Both shows are at University of Maryland University College Inn and Conference Center, University Boulevard at Adelphi Road, College Park, through Aug. 2, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Nordstrom and the Junior League of Baltimore made beautiful music together Wednesday evening. It was the grandest opening of a department store I've ever attended. Four floors laden with people, two knock-'em-dead fashion shows, lavish buffet stations a la Charles Levine caterers, beautiful flower arrangements by Kathy Paal, and music by BS&M, the Keter Betts Quintet, and Bobby Felder and the Blue Notes.More than 2,000 first nighters were there along with members of the Nordstrom family who came to town for the opening, which, according to Bruce Nordstrom, co-chairman of the board of directors, was one of the nicest they've had. Bruce enjoyed his stay in Baltimore, especially while he was playing golf at the beautiful Caves Valley Course.

Born Esta Cook in Baltimore, she was a 1939 Forest Park High School graduate and earned an English degree from the Johns Hopkins University and a master's degree in social work from the University of Pennsylvania. She directed a mental health clinic in Baltimore County before going into private practice as a psychiatric social worker.

I have always thought of Herman Maril as an abstract artist -- not in the usual sense of non-representational, but in the dictionary sense of making an abstract, epitomizing or summarizing. The fine exhibit of Maril's work currently at St. John's College in Annapolis only confirms that opinion.Maril (1908-1986) was a Baltimorean whose career spanned six decades, from the late 1920s to his death. The show's 49 paintings and drawings give us as true a picture of Maril's art as we're likely to get, thanks to curator David Scott, an art historian and former director of the National Museum of American Art. He concentrates on a group of major paintings from Maril's later years, when his style was fully developed, but also includes early works and drawings.
