Here are our top four picks for this month's Final Friday:

Wonder Fair has a mysterious Final Friday planned in conjuction with their Kickstarter project "The Secret Order of the Black Diamond."

mARTch Madness 1109 Gallery
1109 Massachusetts Street
We stopped by this show earlier this week, and were very impressed with some of the art work. The concept is based on the NCAA Basketball Championship. Starting with 64 artists, judges decide who goes forward to the next round. After Wednesdays' winners are announced, the field is narrowed to 32. Friday night will unveil the top winners of the 32 remaining artists who will advance to the next round. All art entered will be shown on Final Friday.
