TPS 29: The International Competition

The Buddy Holly Center is thrilled to host the Texas Photographic Society’s flagship traveling exhibition. This exhibition opened in Houston’s The Silos at Sawyer Yards on October 23, 2020, and has since traveled across the state to the Buddy Holly Center’s Fine Arts Gallery after a stop at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene.


“TPS 29: The International Competition” features work by 50 different artists across the United States. From California to New York, Utah to Maine, Oregon to Georgia, these photographs have a wide range of styles and subject matter that is both timely and striking.


First Friday Art Trail is a program of LHUCA (the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts). Held on the first Friday of every month in venues around the city, galleries, restaurants and businesses open FREE of charge to display local and regional visual and performing art. The First


Friday Art Trail works to promote art and outreach within the community of Lubbock by providing an opportunity to enjoy fine art and entertainment.
