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
