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.
