So, Ed Saavedra called me up, and a good thing, too--seems some peeps are laboring under the misapprehension that the opening for his one-man show at FL!GHT, entitled "All By Myself," is tonight.
IT IS NOT!
There is an opening tonight at adjoining ONE9ZERO6 for Missi Smith, about which you can read more here. So, by all means, go on over to the 1906 complex.
BUT ED'S SHOW DOESN'T OPEN UNTIL 3/17, ST. PATRICK'S DAY.
Here's that info:
"Absent a neatly-packaged shtick, Saavedra avoids easy categorization by simultaneously experimenting on multiple projects and series. His art offers mere static glimpses - only the ends, artifacts, fossils - from a daily process concerned with purpose and progress rather than yesterday's finished product.
