Erika Pochybova-Johnson was born in Czechoslovakia and grew up in the foothills of the Carpathian mountain range in Slovakia. She has lived in Lubbock since 1996 and, after a career in the healthcare industry, she left to pursue her art full-time. You can see her style of european folk art this Friday at the Charles Adams Gallery in Kingsgate North. The event is open to the public and free. Complimentary beverages and Slovakian style snacks will be served from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Friday evening, featured guest speaker and artist Kathryn Clark, from Brookston, Indiana, will give a gallery talk during the reception starting at 6:30pm. Clark and her husband founded Twinrocker Handmade Paper which was the pivotal in the modern revival of handmade paper in America. Her work was featured in the Crafts, Etc. exhibit in the Fine Arts Gallery last December and January.

Jo Henderson brings about 30 of her altered suitcases to Faux Real Art Studio for Friday Friday exhibit. Suitcases and briefcases covered in designs are inspirational and affordable!
