If you're looking for something arts-related for Friday night, make sure to head over to Open Satellite for the opening of Mitzi Pederson's the still night air. I imagine that Mitzi's aesthetic has a lot of followers here in the Puget Sound; I see a strong kinship with some of my favorite local artists.

Mitzi has quite an exhibition history and has shown at The Hammer Museum, Deitch Projects, SFMOMA, Ratio 3, White Columns, the Whtiney Biennial and many more. The opening gala will be from 6-9pm. the still night air is curated by Michael Van Horn. If you can't make the opening, the artist and Henry curator Sara Krajewski will be having an informal discussion at Open Satellite on Thursday (Feb 24).

Or if you still haven't seen the documentary, a not so still life, about Ginny Ruffner, The Henry will be screening it from 7-8:30pm on Friday. Free for members ($5 non-members)

Hey Joey! So glad you are back on the beat-it was getting boring around here.
