By the way, Alex is one of the MANY artists involved with Out of the Ashes: Bakersfield's Sixth All Women's Art Show. While the closing reception will be on October 28th from noon-four, you CAN view the gallery full of art all month. The lovely Camille Gavin for The Bakersfieldf Californian wrote up a great piece on the show if you want some more info. If you're at The Empty Space to check out any shows this weekend, I demand...DEMAND...that you give the gallery a view. It's quite good.
Speaking of The Empty Space, they have two productions happening this weekend! If you're like me, you would watch "Mystery!" on PBS with your mom. Shuttup, no regrets! The artwork from the opening scene was always so thrilling to watch. Edward Gorey, the artist behind that intro, is being brought to life (the best way you can with Edward Gorey!) through Gorey Stories! This is something my mother and I would swoon over. The show is closing this weekend, so catch it while you can!
Also, in the late night slot at The Empty Space: The Unexpected Man. This is a love story of a different type, centering on a novelist and a woman who has fallen in love with his words. The show will start at 11 p.m. both Friday and Saturday and will continue the following weekend.
As with all shows at The Empty Space, you can get more info at www.esonline.org
