Stuff I Made Today (2022)

For 2022, 11 invited artists met at 5&J Gallery in Lubbock 24 hours before the exhibition opened. Then, they selected a box containing a random object which they responded to in order to create, install, and light work before the exhibition opened.

Stuff I Made Today (2014)

The first Stuff I Made Today happened because of a last minute cancellation in 5&J Gallery--some artists agreed to fill in with their scheme of a material-based, time-constrained show. The first iteration was made of cardboard and all artists worked in the gallery, on site. (Feburary 2014, 5&J at CASP, Lubbock, Texas.) Image: Scotty Hensler fetching cardboard)
