Limited Paper: Spoke Art Gallery Travels to New York For SCORSESE: AN ART SHOW TRIBUTE

     April 18, 2013


A few weeks back, we alerted you to an upcoming show being assembled by our friends at the Spoke Art Gallery.  The Spoke Art guys generally operate out of San Francisco, but this Friday they’re taking a field trip to New York’s Bold Hype Gallery to unleash a Martin Scorsese-themed gallery show that looks to be quite the homerun.  Wanna see some preview images from the show and find out what you’ll get if you’re one of the first 100 people in line?  Meet me after the jump, folks!

Really, we shouldn’t have to say much more than “gallery show filled with artwork based entirely upon the films and TV projects of Martin Scorsese” to get you interested, but we’ll let the Spoke Art Gallery folks have their say, anyway.  Take it away, press release!

Acclaimed film director Martin Scorsese is to be honored this weekend in a dynamic art exhibition featuring over one hundred original works of art from an international roster of painters, sculptors and printmakers.

On Friday, April 19th, Spoke Art Gallery of San Francisco, CA will debut a special weekend-long pop up exhibition in Chelsea, New York City, dedicated to the storied filmography of the legendary director. Over 70 artists from around the world have created new and original works of art in honor of Mr. Scorsese in an eclectic showing of over one hundred paintings, sculptures and screen prints.
