Drawn from the Smithsonian Institution's National Anthropological Archives collection, Beyond the Maine: Imaging the New Empire features photographs from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines that date back to the end of the Nineteenth Century. The last vestiges of Spain's colonial domain can be seen in the work of two Americans -- Charles Edward Doty and Helen Hamilton Gardener. Doty, an army photographer, was sent to Cuba to document social conditions and this nation's attempts to help modernize the island. Gardener, an avid proponent of women's rights, photographed life in Puerto Rico, producing images that are indicative of her interest in education and health. The exhibition is on display at Santander Gallery (1401 Brickell Ave.) through May 28. Admission is free. Call 530-2900 for the gallery's hours. (NK)

Although ebullient maestro James Judd may be away, the Florida Philharmonic soldiers on without him. Sometimes they even invite a few guests over to jam. This evening Judd's able stand-in, conductor Duilio Dobrin, leads the orchestra in a program that highlights the sounds of France, Italy, and Spain. On the bill: Debussy's masterwork La Mer, Respighi's light Ancient Airs and Dances, and Rodrigo's intense, passionate Concierto Andaluz, during which the Romero Guitar Quartet, led by renowned flamenco guitarist Pepe Romero, sits in with the orch. Showtime is 8:00 p.m. at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts (174 E. Flagler St.). Tickets range from $17 to $70. Call 930-1812. (
