Louis C. Smith: “Ambiguous Places”

Louis C. Smith’s paintings are neither here nor there, neither this nor that. “Ambiguous Places” is a collection of the artist’s black-and-white works depicting places and objects that could be, but then again may not be. Ribbons of white paint twist and turn against black backgrounds to form marble-like apples, olives and cheese stacked on a small plate or drops of water falling off the lip of a pitcher. Or is it a rose petal? At least, that’s what we see. See if your views differ. 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays, 9 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Through September 29. Jung Center, 5200 Montrose. For information, call 713-524-8253 or visit www.cgjunghouston.org. Free.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 2. Continues through Sept. 29, 2008
