Art for all tastes now popping up in venues across city

Talented and often award-winning artists have made the conscious decision to call Lubbock home and work here on their craft. Meanwhile, the thousands who experience joy in perusing visual art in multiple styles are faced with a surprising number of options.

Naturally, art can be found at traditional galleries, but in West Texas, art can be found almost anywhere, at restaurants, coffee shops, even the occasional automobile dealerships.
