Tornado Gallery has been here five years-five years of First Fridays, concerts in the garden, Art Parts Parties and who can remember what else. Five years of the best folks in the city, all hanging out in our gallery, in downtown Lubbock. That is so cool.
So now what… what do we do, to keep on keepin’ on? We stay open, regularly, daily- at the gallery – showing the coolest locally, lovingly, produced art and craft work in Lubbock. We have it all and we will keep adding to our inventory. From the edgy plasma/neon work of Tony Greer, glass from Sandstorm Glassworks – Lee Ware and Bren Merritt, to traditional styles like Melissa Lee’s incredible gourd work-Tornado Gallery will be the best destination for your artistic cravings. We strive to carry the finest in local Artists.
In addition Tornado Gallery will continue to host live performances of talented musicians that hail from the area. 2012 will be the fourth annual JesseFest, honoring blazing guitar player Jesse Taylor, Brian McRae returns in June and Anthony Garcia and friends in July. Even closer is the Great Scott;s BBQ Reunion Concert on June 2nd. celebrating Scotty and all the fine musicians who played there. Audible, foot-stompin’, roof-raisin’ Art.
This is your notice folks, that we are not going to rest, we have to move forward and we need your support. Come down and say hello to Heidi, she’s the one who’ll be in the in the gallery everyday, shop… maybe buy something. We’ll show you locally done t-shirts, local CDs, and posters, and who doesn’t want to buy local these days. Be our friend, tell folks about us, share this on your page-most of all let everyone know that Lubbock has just as much cool stuff to offer as any city in Texas and we do it friendlier…
