After an Artscape weekend chockablock with exhibits of hectic postmodern eclecticism, the "Summer 2000" show at C. Grimaldis Gallery seems to have been assembled with an almost classical sense of calm and order. Grimaldis' summer show is traditionally a group exhibition devoted to the artists represented by the gallery, so there are many familiar names on view: painters Grace Hartigan, Eugene Leake, Raoul Middleman and Karl Connolly; sculptors Jon Isherwood and John Ruppert; and photographers Neil Meyerhoff, Alberto Korda, James Dusel and Christopher Myers.

If you're going to the exhibit of Richard Serra's "Weight and Measure Drawings" at the Baltimore Museum of Art, it's well to take two remarks with you.Serra himself has said: "I'm more interested in people experiencing these things than looking at them. I don't really care if people go away remembering how the pieces were configured. I want them to go away with some kinesthetic equivalent of a hollow in your stomach."And critic Richard Schiff, writing in the show's catalog, notes: "Serra's drawings hold our attention precisely because they fail to resolve themselves in any familiar manner.

The Richard Serra prints on view at Grimaldis, although they look much like his drawings currently at the Baltimore Museum of Art, have a completely different effect.The drawings come across as enormous physical presences rather than as images that can be "read" for meaning. The prints, on the other hand, have lots of content.That may be because they have a background. They are descended from a sculpture project in which Serra placed 18 upright basalt stones, three and four meters tall, on Videy Island near Reykjavik, Iceland.
