The Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery at Tarleton State University presents a senior art exhibition including two digital media senior students, David Rutledge and Dawn Skinner. The show will run from November 13 – 17 with a brown bag lecture on the first day, November 13, at noon.

Rutledge, a Stephenville native, will present “Tarleton: The Remix”, a show consisting of digital and time based media centered on higher education marketing and graphic design.

“I’ve been creating content for Tarleton’s Student Publications for about a year, and my approach to this body of work is really centered around that,” Rutledge said. “I felt the need to create a series that captured the essence of Tarleton and what it really means to me and future students.

Rutledge will hold a reception on November 13 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Skinner, from Haskell, Texas, will showcase “TV Guide Replay”, consisting of digitally produced TV Guide magazine covers portraying this generation’s TV shows with a 1950’s design style.

“My goal is to convince people these covers were really designed over 60 years ago, but find humor in that they are what they see on TV today,” Skinner said. “I really enjoyed designing this and I hope viewers will enjoy it, too.”

The gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information contact Rutledge at david.rutledge@go.tarleton.edu, or Skinner at dawn.skinner@go.tarleton.edu.
