Evergreen House to host gallery talk on current Ponemone show

Artist Scott Ponemone will give a gallery talk at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, at Evergreen House. His recent work, titled "Scott Ponemone's Baltimore: The Interplay of Art and Architecture," is on display at the historic North. Charles Street mansion and at Homewood House through Sept. 16.

Ponemone spent a year and a half sketching at 11 historic and four private sites in the Baltimore area, including Evergreen, Homewood House, Hampton Mansion, Clifton Mansion and the Maryland Historical Society's Pratt House. Then, in his studio, Ponemone turned his sketches into vivid watercolor paintings of each site that combined the architectural elements of the buildings with details of the decorative arts inside. He will bring his sketch books and discuss the process he went through combining sketches into finished paintings.

Admission to the gallery talk is $8 for Evergreen and Homewood members and $10 for nonmembers. To make reservations, call 410-516-0341.

'Capital Gains': Economics Classics exhibit is at MSEL

A 16th-century hand-colored broadside depicting counterfeit coins in Germany and the published version of John Stuart Mill's 1867 speech to the House of Commons called "On the Admission of Women to the Electoral Franchise" are but two fascinating examples of the breadth of the Hutzler Collection of Economics Classics. Both are featured in the Capital Gains exhibit on display in Homewood's Eisenhower Library through September.

The Hutzler Collection was established by brothers Abram G. and David Hutzler in 1903. More than 5,000 printed titles and 1,000 manuscripts cover the topics of agriculture, currency and finances, labor, manufacturing and industry, commerce, trade laws, and political and social concerns. In a variety of formats including books, pamphlets, manuscripts, broadsides and printed currency, the titles range in date from the 16th to the late 19th centuries.

New materials are added to the collection annually, and recent purchases of continental, and particularly French, works now augment the strong British holdings. Other new areas of expansion include socio-economic history, featuring works relating to or written by women.

The exhibit is located in the Special Collections Department on A-Level and may be viewed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
