Longtime champion of the arts Bill Busta is always on the lookout for up-and-coming local artists. His new William Busta Gallery keeps the spotlight on them. It launches with First Time, Long Time, the inaugural solo exhibit by Cleveland State University painting prof Timothy Callaghan. Subjects include down-on-their-luck characters lurking in vacant alleys. I celebrate misfortunes, wasted opportunities, and apathy, says Callaghan. There is a struggle to overcome obstacles. The paintings are no longer derelict images but passages of triumph.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Starts: April 18. Continues through May 12
