-Bruce H. Smith, an associate professor of art at Brigham Young University, is exhibiting recent paintings in the Secured Gallery, Harris Fine Arts Center, BYU.

Canning jars, cabbage and cloth are among the objects the artist painted for this show. He titles it "Does the Organism Reflect the Psyche?"

Smith, who has been teaching at BYU for 11 years, said, "There is a really strong feeling and concept in our society that nothing you see is real. I'm saying (in my paintings) there is a significance in the appearance of things."

The show continues at BYU through Nov. 17. There is no cost to view this exhibit.
