These artists have distinctive ways of dealing with abstraction in their work. That's why the overall mood of the show is that there are as many differences as similarities between them. Francisca Alika, who comes from Nigeria, does acrylic paintings in which direct representation plays a role.

NEW YORK - The artist known as Rowena admits her fantasy-art paintings - filled with snarling dragons, Fabio lookalikes and buxom damsels - can attract an offbeat clientele. But Saddam Hussein? The upstate New York painter was stunned to learn two of her campy, sexually charged artworks wound up at the tyrant's love shack in Baghdad. And now she wants her '80s-vintage paintings back - taloned serpents, bare-breasted babes and all. "I would give anything to get them back," said Rowena, whose last name is Morrill but prefers using only her first name.

The painterly colors are as bright as a tropical sun in some of the artwork in the "Contemporary Latin American Art Exhibition" at the Columbia Art Center. Although the subject matter of all four artists tends to be puzzling, it's easy to enjoy their otherwise baffling imagery. The two most colorful artists in this exhibit curated by Marcel Wah are Jose Acosta and Jacqueline Matute. Acosta's acrylic and mixed media paintings are densely conceived compositions in which humanoid figures, natural references and pure bursts of color hold your attention.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Four angry generals, five miffed governors and a pair of missing oil paintings were not enough to prevent President Nestor Kirchner from commemorating the dead of Argentina's "dirty war" with two powerfully symbolic acts yesterday that hit hard at the legacy of the country's former military dictators. Kirchner dedicated the Museum of Memory at the Navy Mechanics School, former site of a clandestine concentration camp where thousands of prisoners were tortured and murdered between 1976 and 1983 under military rule.
