Maryland's Fire Marshall has banned sky lanterns, the increasingly popular paper balloons that are sent aloft by the heat of a candle or fuel cell suspended from the bottom. "They're made with oiled rice paper and bamboo - it's almost kindling," said Deputy State Fire Marshal Bruce D. Bouch. "They have to land somewhere, and sometimes they're still partly on fire when they hit the ground. They've been known to ignite dry vegetation. " Bouch said the fire marshal's office frequently gets calls from people interested in using sky lanterns in weddings or other celebrations who want to know if they are legal in Maryland.

"Raise the Red Lantern," opening today at the Charles, is a fable of political oppression so delicate and exquisite it seems more like a trip to the Walters' Hackerman House. It's so precious it makes you gasp in awe before it makes you cringe in pain.But it does make you cringe in pain.After "Red Sorghum" and "Jou Do," filmmaker Zhang Yimou has, by this time, cemented a world reputation as a pictorialist: his works are characteristically gorgeous before they are anything else and after they are everything else and "Raise the Red Lantern" is a dream of wispy symmetry and wintry gray chills and Chinese architecture so delicate and precise it stuns.

The gigantic fish, as translucent and whispery as a dream, wears an aquamarine mantle of scales on its tracing-paper skin. Temporarily speared on a bamboo pole, it waits for the person who will lift it high enough to glide through the currents of light above the wide green sea of Patterson Park. This sculpture is part of the graceful and glowing company of illuminations that will mark the Sixth Annual Halloween Lantern Parade, a community-created art spectacle in southeast Baltimore. As many as 1,000 people are expected to bring homemade lanterns to the park at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 to partake in this annual performance of art and movement -- an artistic collaboration between parade director Molly Ross and neighborhood residents.

The fourth annual juried show at the Artists' Gallery in Columbia, "Local Color," includes artists who aren't shy about using color for expressive purposes. In most cases, their dedication to realistic depictions is tempered by their individual emotional responses. The first place winner, for instance, Joyce Lister , has a pastel titled "Skylight" that calls your attention to how pale purple light falls across the front porch of an old house. You obviously don't know the story of this house and its unseen inhabitants, but you're put into a contemplative mood.

Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and other superheroes have flown across so many movie screens in recent years that it's enough to give an air traffic controller a headache. The latest such do-gooder, "Green Lantern," does not even fly as high as a similarly colored superhero, "The Green Hornet," who flew through as recently as a few months ago. Part of the problem is that "Green Lantern" has never had a very strong grip on the pop-cultural imagination. Although this green-hued comic book figure has been around for decades, he definitely seems like a second-tier superhero.
