At a party recently, a friend used his iPhone to show everyone sonogram images of his fetal child even though it was still so early in the baby's development that it just looked like a grainy, black-and-white peanut. The pictures meant the world to him, of course, but everyone else just nodded and pretended they could tell that it was going to be a cute kid. Inspired by sonograms of his daughter, artist Andrew DeCaen created drawings, lithographs, etchings and other artworks referencing the static-screened peek into the unknown that is a ritual for expecting parents. Fortunately, you won't have to pretend you can already tell that he or she has Daddy's nose at the free exhibit, Sonogram Drawings, on display through March 27 at Norwood Flynn Gallery, 3318 Shorecrest Drive.
