“To describe my work would be to say that it is both a search and a self-healing effort. Moreover, it is the navigation of the mother and child relationship existing under the umbrella of autism spectrum disorder, a disorder that entails curious characteristics. These include communication barriers, social deficits, obsessively repetitive actions, steadfast meltdowns, periods of erratic sleep and wandering scares. Inevitably these result in relentless tests to the human spirit that begin to materialize as personal narrative within large paintings, embroidery works and small-scale paintings.”
Kelly Reyna was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. She holds an BFA in Studio Art/Painting from Texas Tech University, that she received in 2011. In 2015, Reyna attended two residencies through Plymouth University - Transart Institute, in Berlin and in New York. She is currently in the second year of the Masters of Fine Arts program at Texas Tech University.

excited to have been invited to participate in this exhibition, curated by Jon Whitfill! featuring my three “patent pending” artworks made in collaboration with writer Katrina Prow
“This is the 4th edition of Patent Pending, an invitational group exhibition, imagined and organized by accomplished artist Jon Whitfill. The show includes over 50 artists from all across the U.S. along with a few international guests. Each artist was given an original book of U.S. Patents (from 1961-1965) that documented inventions and creative minds during this innovative time. The artists were then asked to make an original piece of art inspired by their particular volume. Most of the artists will be at the opening.”

Growth of a Foreign Entity is a collaboration between Kyla Culbertson and Nate Collins. Kyla creates alien-like ceramic objects, and places them in real and fake environments. Nathan then photographs them, and digitally manipulates the forms through content aware. They place the ceramics and photographs together in order to construct a new reality for the foreign entities, continuing the growth and production of them. Their collaboration is an exploration in creating a fun and experimental space to navigate.

invited to participate in LHUCA's 20 Year Anniversary Exhibition!
Celebrating 20 Years of Art
In honor of its twentieth anniversary, LHUCA has invited over one hundred artists who have contributed to the history of its campus to contribute a piece of art for this exhibition. The diversity of this collection speaks to the achievement of this space as a catalyst for providing unique visions of art to the Lubbock community.
Key to the success of this organization were the efforts of Louise Hopkins Underwood and Neal Hanslik, who headed a group that researched locations and art centers in the local surroundings.
The origin of the main building begins with its transformation from the City of Lubbock Fire Administration building and Firehouse #1 into a non-profit, multi-disciplinary art center in 2000.
The four main galleries of the center host over 5,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space, and functioned as a beginning to LHUCA's expanding campus.

Calling All NASTY WOMEN Artists of Lubbock - This is a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a "Nasty Woman" in the face of threats to role back women’s rights, individual rights, and reproductive rights. The base group organizers will consist of members of the all women's art group chiCrits. A call out for artwork will be curated keeping in mind the two main points of the original organizers in New York City.
1.) Reach out to and include a diverse group of female identifying artists.
2.) This exhibition is a fundraiser to raise money to support a local organization(s) that support women's rights, such as Women's Protective Services and the Lubbock Rape Crisis Center
We will also keep the title NASTY WOMEN to collaborate with New York City and be featured on their web site; www.nastywomenexhibition.org
Objective: The most recent US political climate has offered artist, specifically women identified artist, with an abundance of material to last us a lifetime of creativity. More specifically, the notion that women are "nasty", as spoken by now President-Elect Donald J. Trump to the first woman to achieve the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, Hillary Clinton. This exhibition supports our women centered creative research by showcasing, honoring, and celebrating the work we have already produced or will produce in response to the vile, hateful and demeaning rhetoric directed at our people and our planet.
Artwork: This is a call for art, 2D and 3D, from regional (South Plains of Texas) women identified artist.
