In a globalized environment, no one city can lay claim to the mantle “center of the art-world.” But for all intents and purposes, New York City is still first among equals. That’s why artists continue to flock to the metropolis in droves; including local painting student Evan Halter. Fresh from a four month-long residency in the Empire City, Halter has brought back a clutch of new work, and this Friday, YES in Over-the-Rhine will give them their first public airing. The numerous watercolors and oils featured in Metamorphism take elements from the natural world as their staring point and evolve into ethereal abstract spaces. Several of Halter’s large pieces employ subtle chromatic shifts that reverberate against glossy resinous surfaces. Support the next generation of local talent; opening reception is from 6-10 p.m. Friday. 1417 Main St., Over-the-Rhine. Gallery Hours: 4-10 p.m. Thursday-Friday and noon-4 p.m. Saturday.
