Currently on view at the Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Gallery downtown, Alan and Clara Crockett’s Painting, Drawing, and Other Things is an evocative display of line, shape and color. An emeritus associate professor at Ohio State University, Alan Crockett’s large-scale paintings are replete with dynamic brush strokes and saturated hues.

Keen observers will note echoes of Philip Guston in the painter’s “funnies”-inspired images. Clara Crockett’s small-scale drawings are a gateway into a whimsical realm of humorous (and sometimes awkward) human-animal interactions. The graphite on wax paper Ménage a Trois features multiple images of man and two dogs frolicking across its surface. Though the phrase does not necessarily imply a sexual relationship, its use juxtaposed with the delicate imagery brought a smile to my face. Through June 3. Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Gallery. 650 Walnut St., Downtown. 513-977-4165, westonartgallery.com.
