The 4th Annual Supersonic Invitational group show opens tomorrow, Saturday, January 10th at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco. The show features new work from over 60 international artists, curated by Zach Tutor. The same Zach Tutor that is guest contributing for us right now (see his posts so far). He’s way too humble to post about his own show, so I’m doing it for him! If you live out that way, definitely go check it out, it’s gonna be fantastic.
