Visual art: A Shower of Jewels 

Tues., Nov. 25

The news coming from the crystal balls of financial fortune tellers these days is uniformly grim. So take it as a bit of divine intervention that Oglethorpe University Museum of Art is presenting A SHOWER OF JEWELS: WEALTH DEITIES FROM THE RUBIN MUSEUM OF ART. Continuing Tues., NOV. 25, the museum hosts a collection of works depicting five gods of tantric Buddhism devoted to providing and protecting wealth. Even the famously anti-materialist Buddhists appreciate the power of wealth when used compassionately. All the works originate from the Himalayas and date from the 14th through the 19th century. If your mortgage broker's got bad news for you, give Jambhala or Lord Ganapati a try. They have connections in much higher places. Through Dec. 7. Free-$5. Tues.-Sun., noon-5 p.m. 4484 Peachtree Road. 404-364-8555. museum.oglethorpe.edu.
