SCARBOROUGH, Maine - The studio where painter Winslow Homer derived inspiration on Maine's craggy coast and produced some of his most notable seascapes isn't heated with wood or illuminated by oil lamps as it was in Homer's day. But in most other ways, the studio has now been restored to what it was like when Homer lived there, from 1883 until his death in 1910, following a multiyear, $2.8 million restoration by the Portland Museum of Art. ...

After 23 years of calming crying babies, settling itchy kids and cajoling nervous adults to smile in his Drexel Hill portrait studio, Rich Pruett has moved his operation to Springfield, where he continues to calm babies, settle kids and cajole adults. The setting may change, but the business remains the same. A photographer - no matter where he works - "has to be a psychologist," Pruett said. Since last month, Pruett, 48, has been practicing his way with people in a renovated Tudor stone house at State and Sproul Roads.

A photographer's plan to use a house on Kromer Avenue in Berwyn as his studio was opposed by several neighbors at a hearing this week before the Tredyffrin Township Zoning Hearing Board. The photographer, Paul Emma, who lives in Devon, was seeking a variance from the residential zoning of the vacant twin house in the 600 block of Kromer that he owns. The zoning board heard testimony on the case Monday. Because of an error in advertising the hearing, the board will reopen the case at its Jan. 22 meeting.

It's not that the art of glassblowing doesn't get any respect. It's just that it never hurts to remind people that even if it's a bowl or an ashtray, it's still art. This explains why Emily Kimelman Gilvey and her husband, Sean, had planned to turn their Hudson Beach Glass studio into a small gallery ever since it opened in October. They wanted to show paintings and photography as well as exhibit their own line of glassware and others. "We're a small, family business that's making something," said Gilvey, a photographer turned mystery writer.

The word studio conjures up images of large spaces, sophisticated lighting and ideal photographic conditions. But a studio is simply a place where a photographer can master light and background, while having some control over technique. The amount of space can vary, as long as there is enough for the photographer, the subject and the equipment. Good sunlight can be helpful but isn't essential. A studio can be permanent or temporary, but the key ingredient is creativity. Many of the spectacular shots appearing in magazines were created in plain and even shabby surroundings.

It all comes down to a pig. Seagram chief Edgar Bronfman Jr. is banking on Babe: Pig in the City, the sequel to the 1995 hit Babe, and three other fourth-quarter films to drag his Hollywood studio out of a long, painful slump. The year has been a disaster for Universal Pictures, the film division of liquor and entertainment giant Seagram. Thanks to flops ranging from BASEketball to Primary Colors, Universal has fallen behind every major Hollywood player but MGM, with a paltry 4.1 percent market share, according to box-office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations.

A week ago, the Woodland Avenue Medical Clinic celebrated the grand opening of "Studio 55," a special teen clinic at the medical center in Southwest Philadelphia.

The clinic, through a prenatal program for pregnant students at nearby John Bartram High School, has established a link to other students at the school.

WHEN THE NORTH Philly-based design studio, Creative Tech Works, scouted spaces to host its fashion-meets-tech event, it had one very specific requirement: drones permitted. Today the group's students, who range from elementary school to college, will host their event, Fashion Hack, from 2 to 6 p.m. at Temple University's College of Engineering, on 12th Street near Norris in North Philadelphia. Zuliesuivie Ball, the studio's head of communication development, said the group focuses on finding talent and giving students the ability to go out into the world with knowledge of STEM - science, technology, engineering and math.

With the release of Troll, Terrorvision and Eliminators this year, Charles Band and his Empire Entertainment mini-studio have made up in quantity what his films demonstrably lack in quality. Band makes no apologies for living in the basement of the movie world with straightforward exploitation films that have global prospects. He is a director (Metalstorm, Parasite) who has turned into a very successful studio executive and who invites obvious comparison with Roger Corman. In the '60s, Corman made his name and a great deal of money by hiring new directing talent cheaply.

In terms of quality, one of the most successful of the theatrical ventures launched in Philadelphia in the last few years is the Walnut Street Theater Company's studio theater program. In its first two seasons, this second-stage experiment has given us four productions of exceptional character. Nasty Little Secrets, Lanie Robertson's imaginative treatment of the life and death of playwright Joe Orton, recently closed the second season to sellout audiences. The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer's passionate protest about the AIDS crisis, sold out earlier this season and will resume its timely run on June 14 after two days of previews.

'What do you see?" That question drives John Logan's play Red , a two-hander depicting a few years in the life of 20th-century abstract American artist Mark Rothko (David Volin) as he struggles to complete a series of paintings for a prestigious commission. The Walnut Street Theatre's engaging and balanced production invites no easy answers, and a pair of assured performances engage the audience, while testing their preconceptions, their knowledge, and, dare I say, their pretensions.

It is the real-life portrait of a North Philadelphia family filmed over nearly a decade. The small, everyday moments - and the stakes and drama attached to them. A father working a job delivering circulars in the North Philly dawn. Or being hassled by police outside his home. A conversation between a mother and daughter, as she braids her child's hair. A daughter pressing for a later curfew. It's a family shown in all its complexity and beauty and playfulness - and it's a look into the crushing realities that threaten each of them.

Moving trucks were triple-parked outside 915 Spring Garden St. in the rain Thursday morning as artists - some of whom had kept studios in the old Reading Railroad building for 30 years - wrapped sculptures, boxed paintings, and wrangled with file cabinets. The city Department of Licenses and Inspections had evacuated the building after a small fire broke out Sept. 2 in one of the nearly 100 studios. Though it was quickly extinguished, subsequent inspections by L&I and the Fire Department yielded 29 violations that landlord Pintzuk Brown Realty Group of Jenkintown will have to resolve before tenants can get back to work.

ONE OF MY favorite movies is "Jurassic Park. " Actually, that's not true. One of my 6-year-old nephew's favorite movies is "Jurassic Park," which means we watch it on a loop, which means that unless I want to engage a therapist, I embrace my inner T. Rex and pretend this was entirely my own idea. Deep breath. Right about the point of my 82nd viewing, it occurred to me that technology can sometimes be a dangerous thing. Resurrecting dinosaurs, assuming that were even possible, is not a great idea when the poor creatures would be coexisting with humans (and truly unfair to the dinos if some of those humans were members of the Kardashian genus)

IT'S A SUNNY Friday. Producer and composer RJD2 (real name, Ramble Jon Krohn) is in the midst of packing up. He's leaving Philadelphia, the city he's called home for over a decade, and moving back to his native Ohio. He and his wife have a young son and he wants him to grow up around family. It's bittersweet for the acclaimed musician, notable for composing "A Beautiful Mine," the opening-credit theme for the recently wrapped AMC series "Mad Men. " The move comes on the heels of the May 5 release of "STS x RJD2," his collaborative album with Atlanta-bred, Philly-based rapper STS (a/k/a Sugar Tongue Slim; born Doncarlos Price)
