Tarra Gaines

As arts, entertainment and lifestyle writer for CultureMap, Tarra Gaines focuses on the performing, visual and literary arts but she also muses on travel, television, rodeo concerts and (that one time) haunted furniture with little prompting. Gaines earned a Master of Fine Arts from Texas State University and teaches literature and composition at Houston Community College.
