As the exhibit title "Abstractions" indicates, there are various ways in which artists can leave realism behind in their artwork. This four-artist show at the Meeting House Gallery in Columbia explores some of those stylistic options. The photographs by Bob Paulding suggest how the actual landscape lends itself to abstract consideration. In "Amsterdam House," he presents what basically qualifies as a documentary shot of a white house in an urban setting. Think about how reflections from the sky can have a shimmering effect on a bright day and it'll seem like a natural thing that this house's windows look as blue as the sky above the house.

A handcrafted glass peacock symbolizing hope and new life was a surprise gift to Linda Beanblossom, who has retired as manager of the Oakland Mills Meeting House. The peacock, created by artist Stephana Toomey, was among the highlights of a dinner honoring Beanblossom and - indirectly - the flourishing of the interfaith center at the Meeting House. Beanblossom officially retired last month after 24 years of service at the 25-year-old facility. "It was marvelous, a very enriching, wonderful evening," said Beanblossom.

Say "church" and most people conjure images of "sanctuary," "somber" and "formal." For Jim Griffin, the word church means "home."For the past 13 years, he has lived in a converted Dickeyville church built in 1849.The stone building originally served as a Quaker meeting house (then called the Ashland Chapel) for local mill workers and later was used as a Methodist church. In 1960, it was converted to a house, and since then it has changed hands twice. Griffin bought the house in 1986 for $195,000 and has invested $20,000 in repairs and renovations.
