LIGHT AND SHADOW Photographer Ron Hamad employs the lith printing technique, which produces a high-contrast image when developed, to create soft-toned, black-and-white images. The process allows Mr. Hamad to shroud his subjects in gray or streak them with light; landscapes and figures often appear as shadowy abstractions. “Prayer” (2001), above, from the artist’s exhibit at the Robin Rice Gallery, is characteristic of his dramatic composition. Through Sunday, October 26, Wednesday–Sunday, noon–7 p.m., Robin Rice Gallery, 325 West 11th St., between Washington and Greenwich streets, 212-366-6660, free.
