Brown bag lecture: Jana Perez, artist/designer, February 1st

 Tarleton Fine Arts and the Tarleton Art Society present a brown bag lecture by visiting artist

Jana Perez

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012 at noon in the Fine Arts Gallery

Jana Perez will be speaking about her work as a photographer and designer, as well as her “Objectify” series that is currently in the show Re:Thinking Digital Art. She currently holds the position of assistant professor of graphic design at Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas. Perez has worked as a designer for over ten years, and influenced by her background in advertising, her fine art utilizes the mechanics of language and image to communicate personal and humorous reactions to advertised ideas of female identity and beauty. Working mainly with natural light, Perez’ commercial photographic work reflects her expertise in both framing and creating an intimate environment that invites the viewer into the composition.

Perez’ photographic work has been featured in juried and solo exhibitions nationwide including the 4th Photography Biennial, the ReFresh Print Biennial I, as a Portfolio Winner at The Houston Center for Photography, Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Art Basel Miami, Ohio’s Fitton Center
