August 5….Julie Speed: Gallery Talk - Julie Speed is a painter, sculptor, collage artist, and printmaker who has been exhibiting for more than thirty years. In her series “Undertoad,” Julie continues her unique art of storytelling through images that range in culture from archaic copies of Gray’s Anatomy to nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock prints on Mulberry wood paper. She then continues to work the images using gouache, an opaque watercolor paint, to add new elements and also repair the collaged images that might be damaged. Julie’s mastery of the materials makes the pieces of work effortlessly fit together, with the distinction between the two materials used being almost unrecognizable. She chooses to use found elements as they are, with little manipulation. “The rules to my game are that I’m not allowed to take apart any good books, use any internet-sourced material or my scanner and printer to blow anything up or down, so I buy what I can find at flea markets, eBay, and junk stores. Sometimes I find things while I’m out walking.” Julie works in her studio in Marfa.. Come meet the artist and join us for coffee and donuts. Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, 511 Ave K; 11:30 am – 1 pm

August 5….The 5th Annual David Montalvo Scholarship Jam
- This is event is sponsored by the friends and family of David Montalvo all proceeds will go to the David Montalvo Scholarship Fund awarded by Communities In Schools – South Plains.

He worked with and supported students through CIS for about 7 years. In October 2012, David learned he had stage 4 squamous carcinoma (head and neck cancer). He continued to work extremely hard for the organization even through his treatments. During this time, he worked from home as much as he could and even organized his last chess tournament just a couple of months before his passing. Weeks after his death, several of his friends and family, some of which are local musicians, wanted to create an event that would raise money to advocate for higher education and continue David's legacy. The David Montalvo Scholarship Jam is an event where local bands volunteer their time and talent to entertain throughout the day. All profits from the event are given to Communities in Schools of the South Plains so that scholarships can be awarded to students in Lubbock and/or the surrounding area.
