Jay Rusovich: InsideOut

New Orleans-born photographer Jay Rusovich releases his new book InsideOut on December 15 at an opening reception of the art exhibit of the same name at Deborah Colton Gallery. The book is a collection of images, many of which are included in the exhibit. In Exorcism, we see a seminude woman, with a muscular dancer's body, straining to pull herself along what seems to be a ballet bar. On the left, we see two hands holding a gun, the shooter just out of frame. In Invisible, a naked woman sits in bed holding a gun to her head; next to her sits a male mannequin posed as if he were reading the newspaper. The images are stark, bold and challenging. See more of them today at 6:30 p.m. 2445 North Boulevard. For information, call 713-869-5151 or visit www.jayrusovichlive.com. Free.

Tue., Dec. 15; Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 15. Continues through Jan. 2, 2009
