Hero Worship 

@cal body 1 no indent:Flying ships, broken moons, and misunderstood monsters populate the canvases in Gallery One’s latest Dean Morrissey exhibit. The author and illustrator of the award-hogging children’s book Ship of Dreams will meet and greet fans at tonight’s opening. “He has a brain like a popcorn machine inside his head -- it’s just overflowing,” says gallery rep Larry Chaffee. “If he had four lifetimes, he wouldn’t finish all the concepts in his head.” If you look close, Morrissey’s exhibit also includes a valuable lesson for young warriors. “It shows the difference between fame and heroism, and how it is possible kids can become heroes,” says Chaffee.
Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Mondays-Thursdays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 1. Continues through Dec. 31
