On Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Tonja Hagy from the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about this month’s First Friday Art Trail.

This Friday, LHUCA and various other galleries will be featured in the monthly First Friday art Trail in the Depot District. Hagy said that, due to back-to-school and Tech students returning to town, the September show is usually the largest show of the year, and that they are expecting over 4,000 visitors at all 20 venues.

This month, LISD will be showcasing the works of some of their robotics students at the LHUCA Warehouses. Also at this month's show, the Charles Adams Gallery will host the grand opening of their metal wielding studio. Hagy explained the studio would be open to the public on Saturdays, and that classes would also be held for anyone interested in learning how to wield.

The First Friday Art Trail is held the first Friday of every month from 6 PM to 9 PM at various galleries in downtown Lubbock. For more information and a full listing of gallery locations, visit their website at ffat.org.
