'Heart: A Visual Tribute to the Human Heart' 

In addition to showcasing the wealth of artistic talent at the Stutz - a worthy enough goal in itself - sales from this show benefit the American Heart Association. Heart attack survivor Susan Mauck displays a masterful command of realistic technique in the oil on linen "Momma's Locket," a portrait of her daughter and grandson. Other artists take seemingly greater liberty with the show's theme. Phil O'Malley's "Partially Hydrogenated," with its black running lines running down a red canvas, is open to interpretation (although it could have something to do with blocked arteries). Karen Land brings the long-dead human subjects of antique photographs into the 21st century with her work involving photo transfers and layers of acrylic. Biagio Azzarelli's bronze sculpture "Mother and Child" is also worth a look. While this show may at times seem a bit uneven, the best artists represented here are like the doctors who - by reviving arrested patients on a daily basis - bring their subjects to life. Through Feb. 27; 317-503-6420, www.stutzartists.com.
