From a distance, Madeleine Keesing's line-drop paintings look like finely woven textiles. Step a little closer and the weave seems to ripple and flow across the surface of the canvas like water in an eddying stream. But look even closer and the undulating lines resolve into hundreds of rows of precisely ordered drops of paint that suggest the elemental stability of atoms in a crystal grid. "People always ask how I do these paintings," Keesing says. "Either they think they must be made by a machine, or they think I squeeze the pigment from the tube directly onto the canvas.

Junebug pivots on two gorgeous human junebugs who are trying to get or stay attached to a tight, rooted family down in Dixie. Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz), a Chicago dealer in outsider art, marries a smooth transplanted Southerner, George (Alessandro Nivola), after a whirlwind six-month courtship. She has never met his mom and dad. Ashley (Amy Adams)

Scenes from the Grand Prix of Baltimore on Saturday: View from the cheap seats The McBride family was out in force, trying to see what they could without actually buying a ticket. They weren't having a whole lot of luck. Eye-level banners attached to the fence along Russell Street pretty much blocked any view of the racers, and even when a brief gap in the banners gave a view of the track, the traffic barriers kept the cars hurtling down the street fairly invisible.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will be at the Enoch Pratt library's main branch on Thursday to discuss her new memoir, "Prague Winter," which delves into a family background that had been shielded from her for decades. As The Baltimore Sun's Mary Carole McCauley reports, in 1997, at age 59, just days after being confirmed as U.S. secretary of state, Albright learned about a family secret. "I had no idea that my family heritage was Jewish," said Albright, a native of Czechoslovakia.

With a timbre suggestive of Billie Holiday and an intimate style of phrasing that needs only the subtlest twist of a syllable to hook a listener, Madeleine Peyroux has cleared a distinctive path in today's jazz world. That path does not include a lot of self-promotion. The Georgia-born singer, songwriter and guitarist has a reputation for being on the reclusive side. There have been periods when she simply dropped out of sight (during one such period about a decade ago, she did some busking in Paris)

Today, Henri Matisse is regarded as such a towering figure of 20th-century art that it's easy to forget this is not how he saw himself, especially during the difficult early years at the turn of the 20th century. He was stubborn about his ideas, but also uncertain about the direction of his art and dismayed by the vituperation of critics. He didn't set out to invent a theory or even a definition of modern art. Rather, he simply produced works that were themselves daring acts of exploration and discovery.

I never thought I'd miss Brenda and Dylan.Then I saw Shannen Doherty and Judd Nelson in "Blindfold: Acts of Obsession," a USA cable movie that premieres at 9 tonight.The film features some of the worst acting, sloppiest editing and most atrocious dialogue of the entire TV season. And that's not the half of it. There's lots of titillation, with Doherty shown at several points blindfolded and tied up -- immobile, vulnerable, sexual. To those with healthier inclinations, "Blindfold" appeals not a whit.
