In 2017, LalenaLab hosted Off WEST, a pop-up exhibition using our four spaces to show the fine art work of Yareth Fernandez, Michele Hogan, Marilyn Darrell, and Lalena Fisher. The event included performances by Cienfuegos, Screen Door Slammers, and The Mothermold. Guests enjoyed refreshments from sponsors Bouldin Creek Cafe and Slow Pokes Brisket Shack. More about OffWEST may be read on the Off WEST press release. Photos from the event are posted in the Off WEST LalenaLab Facebook photo album; videos on the main page.
