New Yorkers are reputed to be rudely indifferent to others, and New York painter David FeBland humorously captures this in his David FeBland exhibition at Fraser Gallery Bethesda.

In "Accidental Couple," he shows two city travelers squeezed together in a subway car, strangers but physically close to each other. She puts on her makeup while he lounges next to her, staring into space.

In another painting, "Traveler," the artist shows a woman at an airport, about to be frisked and looking uncomfortable.

7700 Wisconsin Ave., Suite E, Bethesda. Noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays, through Nov. 10. Free. 301/718-9651.
