What is an inter/trans-disciplinary artist? One who leaps from here to there and back again. One who can always see the big picture. One for whom the world is equally compelling and revolting, revealing and concealing. One who sees the personal and political, creative, social and environmental as often one, and for whom a single medium and point of view is never enough.
I am happy to inform you my artwork has been chosen to be included in the 6th annual international 2018 FL3TCH3R Exhibit: Social and Politically Engaged Art displayed from October 8 to December 14, 2018, at the Reece Museum on the campus of East Tennessee State University.
THE EXHIBIT: The FL3TCH3R Exhibt SOCIAL & POLITICALLY ENGAGED ART
The Annual FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT is an international juried exhibit focused on socially and politically engaged art. Socially and politically engaged art has been integral in creative expression since the beginning of visual arts. This exhibition explores the current trends and trajectory in this field and these collective creative works hopefully serve as an avenue or agent for societal transformation and exposure of social and political points of view. The goal is to recognize and advance this endeavor by providing a venue for the exhibition of socially and politically engaged art. Furthermore, the exhibit's proceeds after expenses will fund the Fletcher H. Dyer Memorial Scholarship for an art and design student.
