This past Friday was the reception for the Villains Artist Collective gallery at Star Books & Comics! The gallery initially went up for the First Friday Art Trail on July 7th but we held the reception on the 14th to help celebrate the birthday of Lubbock-Con’s Artist Liaison, Dre.
People came dressed in villains themed clothing and we had art from around 20 local artists on display ranging from digital to traditional. There were monsters and superhero villains, video games and Disney villains.
And for a non-FFAT reception, the gallery was packed!
I love doing artist collective galleries because you get a wide variety of art but you also give opportunities to newer artists who may have never displayed before to contribute a piece. Sometimes artists won’t do galleries because they’re afraid to have to fill one, but these are an easy way to produce new art and showcase your work.
Here are all the pieces we had out on display! The gallery will run until the end of the month and most of the pieces seen here are still available for sale!
We had such an awesome time and I want to thank everyone again for making it out to support our local artists! Thank you to Star Comics as always for hosting the Artist Collective and we will see you next month for our Digital Spaces art gallery!
