Kent Williams

The official launch of the fall art season is upon us and with it an amazing array of high profile shows are opening the world over this weekend. From big solo shows in Los Angeles from the likes of Sarah Joncas, Buff Monster, Dabs Myla, Nathan Ota, and Yumiko Kayukawa to big solo shows in San Francisco from Stanley Donwood and in the UK from Guy Denning. All that and I didn’t even mention Kent Williams’ big solo in NM and Brendan Monroe’s show in Paris… with that said, get out there and support the arts people!
