Visitors to the American Visionary Art Museum know Joe Coleman: He is the painter of morbid images of human suffering, whose work combines the observant humor of R. Crumb and the detailed genius of Hieronymous Bosch.Coleman is the provocative center of an engrossing documentary about his life and work, "R.I.P. Rest in Pieces: A Portrait of Joe Coleman," in which filmmaker Robert-Adrian Pejo wisely allows the artist to speak for himself.And speak he does, on subjects as far-ranging as global ecology, the population explosion, Catholicism, sexuality and his own troubled inner life.

Mary H. Coleman, a Medfield day care provider who cared for several generations of children, died Saturday of a stroke at Johns Hopkins Hospital. She was 78. Mary Hilda Grothe was born in Hampstead and spent her early years in Manchester and Millers before moving to Fawcett Street in Remington with her family. She attended city public schools until leaving to go to work. After her 1955 marriage to John C. Coleman Sr., the couple moved to Medfield, where they had lived for more than 50 years.

It was a wedding planned for maximum shock value. Whitney Ward and Joe Coleman's friends would have been disappointed with anything less. A ventriloquist's dummy named Phineas Dutch Duffy officiated at the ceremony (the ventriloquist himself is ordained in the Universal Life Church). The flower girl was a scantily clad woman dressed as a mermaid. The train of the bride's gown was carried by two costumed dwarfs. The table decorations included bizarrely carved jack-o'-lanterns and cured pigs feet.

OAKLAND, Calif. - A year ago, Jose Mercedes earned de facto status as the Orioles' staff ace over a pitcher who later signed an $88.5 million contract and another whom the Orioles classified as untouchable. Now, two months removed from free agency, his goal is to maintain his confidence while trying to sidestep becoming the major leagues' first 20-game loser in two decades. "I think I'm doing the same thing. I don't think I'm having the same luck," said Mercedes, 7-16 after taking Saturday's 6-4 loss against the Seattle Mariners.

Joe Coleman has the rare ability to create truly horrifying art.His paintings, on view at the American Visionary Art Museum and in a new book he will sign there today, are populated with hideously deformed humans, monstrous acts and statements of nihilistic perversity. Cities disintegrate, people maim and kill one another, bodies have gaping, gory holes and swelling, pustular growths. Coleman is an artist who sees life as, literally, hell on Earth.In "The Victory of Hell," a six-armed Lucifer in the form of a hermaphrodite presides over a scene of utter depravity.

On the field: Some hustle saved the Orioles a run in the second -- momentarily, anyway. J. T. Snow ripped a long double to left-center field, with the ball bouncing at the base of the wall and skipping back over the head of center fielder Brady Anderson. But left fielder Brent Bowers had scampered over to back up the play and made a strong throw home -- over the head of cutoff man Cal Ripken. More hustle: Roberto Alomar, who backed up Ripken, speared the throw. Both runners eventually would score.
