April First Friday Art Trail

 On the first Friday of April, the Buddy Holly Center would like to welcome the participants of the Texas Association of Museums & the New Mexico Association of Museums Annual Meeting and invites them with the community to participate in Lubbock’s First Friday Art Trail, an event held on the first Friday of every month in venues around the city, organized by The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts. Galleries, restaurants and businesses open FREE of charge to display local and regional visual and performing art. A free trolley service to and from venues will be offered.

The First Friday Art Trail works to promote art and outreach within the community of Lubbock by providing an opportunity to enjoy fine art and entertainment.  On Friday, April 4, 2014 the Buddy Holly Center will be open from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. for patrons to view its exhibits. There will be FREE admission, a cash bar and refreshments. For more information on the First Friday Art Trail visit www.ffat.org.

Displayed in the Foyer Gallery is the exhibition, Allusions to Antiquity: The Photography of Emily Verkamp. This exhibition features the work of Texas Tech University art student Emily Verkamp who uses artistic, historical and scientific references to create interesting and challenging juxtapositions in her unique photographic collages. Private Collections: A Look at Lubbock Artists will be displayed in the Fine Arts Gallery. This exhibition focuses on a select group of artists whose works are represented in private and public collections in the Lubbock area.  Featured artists include Kathy Hinson, Ann McDonald, Susan Nall and James Watkins.

Lubbock-Cooper High School, Lamesa High School, Slaton High School and O’Donnell High School will each be creating a wall mural that expresses their school and community. All four walls will be displayed at the Buddy Holly Center in the Meadows Courtyard. A fifth blank wall will accompany the four completed walls and will be available for participants of the First Friday Art Trail to add their own artistic expressions. All five walls will stand as a public display of the combined effort and impact that all four schools and the Lubbock community have in shaping the West Texas area.
