What turns a person into a hero? It’s the ability to run toward adversity, not away from it. Comic book worlds are populated with superheroes and ordinary people who fight impending disaster. Art Sanctuary gathered eight artists with diverse hero interpretations, such as Jonathan Matthews, a designer for DC Comics. Local artists include Victor Sweatt and Rene Blansette. The opening reception is Friday, Jan. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m. We just learned Kevlen Goodner, one of the artists, has suffered a stroke. Search gofundme.com to help him with medical costs.
