OLIVER STREET EDITIONS
419 E. Oliver St.
Intended to educate the public on the workings of fine art printmaking, Oliver Street Editions opens with a show by three resident artists representing different facets of the art form: Calvin Custen's autobiographical relief wood cuts from his book "The Catharsis of the American Myth," Sam Peters' abstract monotypes (which the artist calls "colorful" and "mysterious), and Cid Collins Walker's mixed-media combines, which include the richly colorful "Neon Series" and "Trevi Series" photo silk screens. Through December. By appointment. Call (410) 685-0458.
SPIKE & CHARLIE'S
1225 Cathedral St. "Modern Meteorology"
In this collection of oil paintings on canvas, Janet Olney reorders the periodic elements and visually renders what she calls a "private mythology" about the origins of weather and science. These depictions include contraptions that bring on the night or extract tension from a scene, or answers such questions as how weather could be controlled in another universe. Ms. Olney says these abstract landscapes are based on her readings about science in technical journals. Through Dec. 23. Call (410) 752-8144.
