The FL3TCH3R Exhibit :
The 2018 6th 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.

ABOUT FLETCHER :
Fletcher Hancock Dyer, age 22, was lost too soon in a motorcycle accident in Johnson City, TN on November 5, 2009. Fletcher was a senior in the Department of Art and Design at East TN State University pursuing
a concentration in Graphic Design under a Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Earlier, Fletcher used as a preface in an essay he wrote as a high school senior a quote by Gerald W. Johnson, "Every great work of art is offensive to someone, for a work of art is a protest against things as they are and proclamation of things as they ought to be." As an artist and graphic designer, Fletcher's passion for art was a vehicle
that allowed him to mirror his passion and marry it to his concern for social and political issues through visual means.
Fletcher was always curious and aware of current events; he experimented in innovative ways to create works that investigate contemporary social issues. New, unexpected ideas and perspectives had unique ways of coming to the surface as a result of Fletcher's creative means of rattling cages. Fletcher wrote,
"I dream of making a difference in some way with my art, I might attempt to right political, social, and religious wrongs by showing the rest of society a glimpse of how I feel about serious issues in the world...Hopefully the awareness that I can help create will spark an interest in a movement that others will follow." Fletcher's work embodies a purposeful, deliberate perspective of his personal endeavor to employ art as social and political commentary.
THE FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT aspires to honor Fletcher's legacy by providing a venue for artists to exhibit artworks that continue the dialogue. For more information: http://fletcherdyer.com/about.html
