Arts preview: "Crusties"

Jim Fischer

Emerging local artists + movie-themed artwork = exhibitions in the Gallery at Gateway Film Center. If you guessed, then, that Loren Collins' "Crusties" exhibition featured older, male actors, you guessed correctly. "In an age where imperfections are wiped clean, I look to portray our heroes, villains and friends truthfully," writes Collins in her artist statement. Our familiarity with these faces, she says, in some ways reflects our sense of the passing of time. Billy Two Shoes will play music during the reception, which will also include food and drink.
