November 27 is Small Business Saturday and a very fun event is planned to celebrate this day and give you the opportunity to support local artists and buy some terrific Holiday gifts! The Caprock Artists Studio Collection will be showcasing the works of 13 outstanding Lubbock professional artists. A lovely variety of works will be available to purchase at the CASP Building (5 & J Gallery) from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

To view a great sampling of the works which will be available, you can join the Collection’s Facebook page at: Caprock Artists Studio Collection. Many of the artists have Facebook pages where you can connect with them, see samples of their work, and learn more about their craft.
Lyn Stoll, Lyn Stoll Jewelry Design, has worked hard to coordinate the event for this year and said, “This is a new art event for Lubbock and it’s so fun to see each other’s work in the amazing space at the 5 & J Gallery. There will be ample space for patrons to see the paintings, jewelry and sculptures on display.” Several of the artists have studio spaces behind the gallery in the CASP studio area and their studios will also be open for the event. “The arts culture is really positive in Lubbock,” Stoll said. “Both CASP and LHUCA have been terrific partners for this new event.”
Also happening during the day is the “Affordable Art Sale” at LHUCA. This is another opportunity to support area artists by purchasing their work and getting to know them. The sale includes local artists working in diverse media including painting, printmaking, jewelry, ceramics, wood, fiber, handmade books, mosaic, glass, photography, collage, and mixed media. There is nothing like a thoughtful, handmade gift bought in the spirit of love to last a lifetime and sometimes generations. The LHUCA event will happen at the Icehouse on the campus (511 Ave. K) from 9:00am-4:00pm and feature 40 plus artists. The event will also include Artful Family Hours while musicians Alex Webster and Jordan Robert Kirk will fill the air with great tunes. And…what Holiday event would be complete without a visit from Santa and of course, food? Food trucks (Taste Buds and Frios) will be on hand to enjoy as well. Bring your family out and enjoy a fun filled day with the Lubbock arts community.
