Every first Friday, no matter the weather, folks turn out for the First Friday Art Trail. This month, in addition to what you think of as “art” there were bands, dancers, costumed actors, food trucks, and lots and lots of people. My informal survey of the food trucks indicated that this one, the taco truck, was the most popular.
It’s a lot of fun; you should probably plan a trip to Lubbock one of these first Fridays to check it out. You’ll be glad you did.
Sometimes you have to just suck it up and ASK.
The First Friday Art Trail here in Lubbock is sort of a big deal. And I’d been wanting to have some of my work shown on a First Friday.
So I overcame the tiny bit of shyness that I’ve not yet conquered and asked Larry Simmons, the proprietor of the Tornado Gallery, if I could have a spot at a First Friday. He said yes, and so I am very happy to announce that on August 2, I will be on the Trail.
Stop by, if you’re in town.
(And my deepest appreciation to Larry Simmons for giving me a spot. Not only is he a great guy, but he is my exact birthday twin; every year on our birthdays we agree that we just keep getting better and better.
