Ruth Channing's etchings are witty, charming and serious all at once. Some of her recent small-scale ones, on view at Resurgam, originate in poetry, the autobiography of Casanova and subjects from early printmaking, such as "Death, the Raconteur," shown here.
Channing is one of three artists in Resurgam's current show. The others are Jimmie Miller, whose brightly colored collages are abstract but often contain suggestions of architecture; and Carlene Bausch Moscatt, whose charcoal drawings employ subject matter from nature, including vines and leafy plants.
At Resurgam Gallery, 910 S. Charles St., through Feb. 18. Noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Call (410) 962-0513.
