What’s up at Boston-area art galleries

Nancy White is not a showy painter. Her abstract works at Steven Zevitas Gallery, no larger than 10½ inches tall, sport a consistent color value, which means there’s little contrast of bright and dark — rather, this group of paintings is fervently dim.

That’s part of what captivates. White doesn’t romance the eye, but she draws the viewer into her small worlds of slicing shapes and tilting planes with compositions that suggest surprising space. Within the dusky tones, there may not be glamour, but there’s mystery.
