An artist all her life, she took up painting only after finding success as an inker, encouraged by Sol Tribe owner Kevin Strawbridge. Tonight, Times Are Hard for Dreamers, a rare solo show featuring a slew of Calistro's portraits and prints, will open with a reception from 7 to 11 p.m. at Super Ordinary Gallery, 3126 Larimer Street. As usual at Super Ordinary, it won't be a typical wine-and-cheese evening: Tina Jolliffe of Fast Geek Boutique collaborated with Calistro on original designs for a fashion show, and DJ Brian Castillo will provide the spins; wine, beer and cupcakes will also be available. The show continues through February 11; for more information, go to www.wearesuperordinary.com or call 303-404-1805 for an appointment.
