James Surls is an internationally recognized and collected American artist. Surls earned a BS from Sam Houston State University and an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. In 1998, he moved from Splendora, Texas to Carbondale, Colorado. He is best known for large sculptures that are roughly hewn and derive much of their power from a close connection to nature and raw materials.
An important new work by Surls, Complete Fragment, consisting of three bronze and stainless-steel sculptures, is joining the Texas Tech University Public Art Collection, as part of the 1% for Art Program at TTU.
Hours for the Landmark Arts Galleries are: Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM; Saturday 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM; Sunday noon - 4:00 PM. Closed during University holidays.
LANDMARK ARTS promotes fine arts growth and development at Texas Tech School of Art through a comprehensive program of exhibitions, symposia and workshops, publications, and hands-on experience with working artists. As a component of the Texas Tech University School of Art, the strength of the program is in the integration of academic, professional, and real-world experience afforded by its broad association with the University and the Lubbock Community of arts supporters.
Landmark Arts exhibitions and speaker programs in the Texas Tech University School
of Art are made possible in part with a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation
of Lubbock. Additionally, we thank the J.T. and Margaret Talkington College of Visual
and Performing Arts for the support provided for programs in the School of Art.
