21st Annual Take In the Local Color! Lubbock’s Artist Studio Tour
Forty-two artists and eight studios will be participating in the 21st Take In the Local Color! Lubbock’s Artist Studio Tour. This yearly event gives audiences the unique opportunity to observe artists in their working environments, many of which are in private homes. All participating artists are from Lubbock County and all of the studios are located in Lubbock, Texas.
There will be approximately five artists showcased at each studio location. Artists will be displaying original work in the media of painting, drawing, pottery, fiber, jewelry, glass, wood, photography and sculpture. Demonstrations and performances by local musicians at some studio locations will add to the ambiance and festivity of the event. The Local Color Studio Tour is free and open to the public who are invited to travel on their own from studio to studio to see the artwork.
