"Blow It Out Your Year"

When: Thu., Dec. 31, 6 p.m.-1 a.m. 2015

Before it ignited the Second Saturday scene in the South Flores/Lone Star Arts District, FL!GHT operated out of the Blue Star Art Silos, where founder Justin Parr launched “viral T-shirt and sticker campaigns” amid a developing First Friday landscape. Back at Blue Star since mid-2014, Parr and creative co-conspirator Ed Saavedra nod to the grassroots gallery’s “slightly downriver origins” with “Blow It Out Your Year,” a year-end send-off within eyeshot of the Hemisfair fireworks. Anchored by an exhibition of small-scale works by “an improbable number of artists” (Joey Fauerso, Jenelle Esparza, Mignon Harkrader and Jayne Lawrence, to name a few), the BYOB affair also includes music by DJ Rasta Mike and a Champagne toast at midnight.
