Three artists work in different situations
"Situations," opening Saturday at School 33, brings together three artists whose work deals with individuals in different kinds of situations. Jean Ohring's paintings of figures in interior settings explore relationships between individuals. Edgar Kel Smith's photographic works are autobiographical; his narrative assemblages of found and family snapshots reflect the artist's experience. Stuart P. Stein's paintings deal with the artist's response to his environment. The show runs through Oct. 2 at School 33 Art Center, 1427 Light St. Call (410) 396-4641.
