Doubled up

Been seeing more art than usual in downtown Baltimore? No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, but the works will disappear soon.

The School 33 Art Center's Doppelganger show -- which features works by 12 local artists -- closes Saturday.

Doppelganger is a German word meaning physical or spiritual double. Artists contributed two similar pieces of art -- one hangs in the gallery, and the other is displayed outside. Pick up a map at the gallery to find the outdoor artwork.

There are 30 pieces in the show, including sculpture, etchings on rice paper, acrylic and oil paintings, chalk and more. Some works are interactive.

School 33 Art Center is at 1427 Light St. Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays-Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays. Call 410-396-4641.

Minas photos

Black-and-white photographs by Edward Winter snake around the walls of the Minas Gallery in Hampden. The photographs are related and can be interpreted as a loose narrative.

The show also includes five oversized black-and-white photographs of urban landscapes. "They have very rich textures and mysterious lighting," says gallery owner Minas Konsolas.

The show ends Sunday.

The Minas Gallery is at 815 W. 36th St. Hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesdays-Mondays. Call 410-732-4258.

Meet the artist

The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts will put up a new show of oil paintings by Hagerstown artist Todd Yeager tomorrow. The 18 portraits were all painted in the past 10 years.

Chat with Yeager at the museum on Sunday from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the formal opening. Light refreshments will be served. Cost: a suggested $2 donation.

The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts is at 91 Key St., City Park, Hagerstown. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Sundays. Call 301-739-5727.
