Now As In Right NOW!

If you’re anywhere in the SF Bay Area you might wanna swing over to the East Bay (or the “Beast Aye” as they say in fashionable Pig Latin) to check out the “Oakland NOW” exhibition opening tonight, curated by Ken Harmon of Spoke Art. This weekend things should be particularly frisky as it’s tied in with the 12th Annual Art and Soul festival. This guy will be looking for you —
