It's not unusual for Plus Gallery to throw a group show in the summer, but Ivar Zeile says this year's offering, Super Human, is his biggest multi-artist exhibition ever, with work from more than 25 local, national and even international artists. More than just a collection of portraits, Super Human is a sleek study in 21st-century trends in portraiture. Here's a sneak peek at some of that work; see the rest when the show opens on Thursday, July 10.
