The Town on Thursday

Posted by novoscene on June 22, 2009

Summer of love

If there’s one Oakland art gallery that can summon Soho star power for a fundraiser, it’s Creative Growth. OakBook wrote about one of its artists, the singular Gerone Spruill back in Issue 3.

On Thursday, Creative Growth opens its Summer of Love show curated by Tom di Maria. Following the opening, Creative Growth will host a fundraiser at Pizzaiolo with guest artists David Byrne and Cindy Sherman.

The opening is free and open to the public starting at 5 p.m. The fundraiser starts at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $100 to $225. There are still a few seats available.
