Putnam's Silver Circle Gallery hosts The Child Within, an exhibit of works by painter Sherrie Parenteau, through the end of September. Most of the paintings, including Parenteau's "Suspended" (pictured), were created using oils and egg tempera and are reflections on a child's psychological space, as experienced by an adult. Several of Parenteau's paintings are owned by talk-show host Sally Jessie Raphael.
