NORTH CHARLESTON CITY GALLERY | Between the lines

The City of North Charleston's Cultural Arts Department presents oil paintings from New York based artist, Lara Ivanovic and mixed media works by Jennifer Kelly Hoskins of Conway, S.C. Ivanovic's work is presented in a series entitled Forsaken Spaces, images inspired by abandoned factories and broken-down buildings. The large, empty interior spaces reflect on both themes of the past — and future possibilities. Ivanovic paints from photos she takes on road trips, and experiments with perspective, contrast, and light. Hoskins' works, Nostalgia, are a series of drawings in colored pencil and acrylic depicting the hands of friends or relatives. Each of Hoskins' subjects holds an object that is a symbol of nostalgia, connecting them to late friends and relatives, including items a simple as a tax return with someone's grandmother's signature on it. Hoskins says, "I believe our former selves are carried within us, continually influencing our current realities."

Thurs. Nov. 1, 5-7 p.m. Free to attend. North Charleston City Gallery, International Blvd. North Charleston. northcharleston.org

CORRIGAN GALLERY | Figures — Like Reality

Corrigan Gallery presents Daphne vom Baur's new works, Figures — Like Reality for the month of November. Vom Baur has shown often in Charleston — her husband is the grandson of Elizabeth O'Neill Verner. Vom Baur's works depict Penelope, the Lotus Eaters, Valkerians, horses, and landscapes. Figures — Like Reality shows Penelope, the faithful wife of Odysseus. The title of the show is taken from the review in the Wall Street Journal by Dominic Green of Modernists and Mavericks, a book about "art that felt like reality." In focusing on figures from mythology, vom Baur's works offer timeless tales of morality — or lack thereof.

Fri. Nov. 2, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Corrigan Gallery, 7 Broad St. Downtown. corrigangallery.com

HAGAN FINE ART GALLERY & STUDIO | Complementary art

Madeline Dukes and Mary Hoffman share the gallery's main stage in a two-woman exhibit. Gallery director Allison Hull says, "We have enjoyed having both Mary and Madeline painting in the gallery, together, on many occasions. They each have their own individual style, but their art compliments beautifully together. It was a natural decision to have a show pairing them."

Fri. Nov. 2, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Hagan Fine Art Gallery and Studio, 177 King St. Downtown. haganfineart.com
