$5 or less: 100 Heads for Haiti

As recovery efforts continue in the wake of January's devastating earthquake in Haiti, different factions continue to do their best to support relief projects. Baltimore's Spur Gallery is helping out with a curated exhibition designed to raise money by selling original drawings, paintings and collages by some of the biggest names in the illustration world. One hundred artists -- including influential figures such as Steve Brodner, Anita Kunz, Bob Staake and Gary Taxali -- have donated portraits that will be available for $100 each, a bargain for works by most of these illustrators. Browsing the art is free, although donations will be accepted and 100 percent of proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders.

6-8:30 p.m. Saturday. Spur Gallery, 3504 Ash St., Baltimore. 410-235-7803. http://www.spurdesign.com/100heads4haiti. Free admission.
