Reception to celebrate painting exhibition

A free public reception Thursday, March 5, will celebrate painter Richard Storms’ exhibition, Jeepers Creepers, in the SoCA Gallery.

Storms explores the car culture of his generation. This series of paintings portrays famous getaway cars from American movies, which sold not only these engineered objects of desire, but also the culture of speed, the dream of escape on the open road … the masculine supremacy of being in the driver’s seat.

Jeepers Creepers remains on display through Friday in the gallery, located in the Armouries at 37 University Ave. E. Thursday’s reception runs 6 to 8 p.m. Find more information on the exhibition website.
