Exhibitions at the Buddy Holly Center: Fine Arts Gallery
A Wheeler Brothers Retrospective: The Lubbock Years. The exhibition will open on August 4 in the Fine Arts Gallery and be on display until September 22, 2017. This dynamic exhibition showcases the work of artist-brothers Jeff and Bryan Wheeler, who were a driving force in the Lubbock art scene over the last two decades. Curated from work completed over this time, “The Lubbock Years” features individual and collaborative paintings, drawings, collages, ceramics, sculpture, photographs, and prints that, as art critic Rainey Knudson wrote, “deliberately climbs into the crusty skin of every hackneyed Texas stereotype and turns it inside out, into something wild, exuberant, fresh and new.”
A highlight of the evening will be a free concert in the Meadows Courtyard, featuring. Los SOB’s, with Bryan Wheeler, from 6:00-7:30pm and Texas music icon, Butch Hancock from 7:30-9:00pm.
On Sunday, August 6 at 2:00pm, we invite the public to join us in the Fine Arts Gallery for a very special Gallery Talk, hosted by brothers, Bryan and Jeff Wheeler. Guests will have the opportunity to visit with the artists about their years of art collaboration in Lubbock and hear about their plans for the future. Following the gallery talk, the Buddy Holly Center will host a reception for the artists and visitors.
The Buddy Holly Center would like to thank the CH Foundation for providing the funding to make this exhibition and gallery talk possible.
