BYE BYE BLACKBIRD: By sitting on the outer edge of the 18b Arts District, Blackbird Studios did not benefit from foot traffic. Sometimes the studio was left off promotional maps, despite paying for a spot. Undaunted, they produced solid exhibitions that gave credibility to the local gallery scene . . . That is ending. Blackbird Studio is closing. "We decided to end our long run with a fun show paying tribute to one of our most beloved film makers," says the studio's Facebook post . . . The final outing will be a group show that has local and not-so-local artists pay homage to Wes Anderson, "one of the most iconic and inspiring directors making films today." It opens December 4 during First Friday. They will also be open during Preview Thursday on December 3 from 6 to 9 p.m.
