Fine Arts Gallery

The Buddy Holly Center features 2,500 square feet of gallery space dedicated to the presentation of changing contemporary visual arts programs. These exhibitions are a continuation of a tradition of quality initiatives that were presented by the Lubbock Fine Arts Center from 1984 - 1998. With the relocation of the Fine Arts program to the Buddy Holly Center in 1999, we continue the commitment to present challenging visual arts exhibitions that serve as a crucial resource for showcasing contemporary arts of the region and the nation.

Art is a form of communication independent of language. It is a way of manifesting human uniqueness. It is a way of reminding us that life is infinitely fragile, infinitely precious.
