Kendra McCartney, of K:McCartney Studio, is one of the artists-in-residence at the Charles Adams Studio Project, here in Lubbock. We met last year in a letterpress class, and she also teaches art at my granddaughter’s school. (Lubbock’s a small town, in a lot of ways.)
Anyway, I like her pottery.
A behind-the-scenes look at K:McCartney Studio; Kendra is one of the artists in residence at the Charles Adams Studio Project. The next time you’re in town, you should stop in.
(Her work’s for sale, too. If you get my drift.)
Big chunks of downtown Lubbock don’t have anything going on, but the north end is turning into a interesting arts center. It’s anchored by the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts and the Charles Adams Studio Project, and there is nearly always something interesting going on. Last winter I took letterpress classes down here, and the other night – when I made this image – I was taking part in a drink-and-draw event hosted by one of the CASP artists in residence.
I like to think about the “traditional” efforts at downtown revitalization in Lubbock, that haven’t always been successful, and compare them with how much the arts have transformed this area. Maybe there’s a lesson here?
