Mariachi Amistad has performed at events all over Lubbock including The Buddy Holly Music Festival, Magic 93.7’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration, Fourth on Broadway and the Concert on the Brazos series at the Science Spectrum.

There will be a Gallery Talk with Ken Davis in the Fine Arts Gallery at 4:30 p.m. John Franklin: The Natural Beauty of Wood will be in the Foyer Gallery. Woodworking artist John Franklin will display his latest creations fashioned from a variety of woods. Franklin uses a lathe to transform wood into functional and sculptural forms, with the goal of maximizing the natural grain and inherent beauty of each type of wood. His raw materials come from all over the world, but he’s especially fond of using Texas woods such as mesquite, cottonwood, hackberry and Manzanita.
