BFA Brown Bag Lecture – Tracy Dominguez – December 12/2 at noon

The Department of Fine Arts presents the sixth and final BFA exhibition of the fall semester.  The exhibit features the work of painter Tracy Dominguez, and will run from December 1st – 3rd  in the Gallery of the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center.  The artist will be speaking about her work at a brown bag lecture on Tuesday, December 2nd at 12 noon in the TSU Gallery.  

In her exhibition entitled If Animals Could Talk, Dominguez presents a series of triptychs that explore the artist’s wonder about the thought processes and expressions of animals.   Dominguez says “My idea for this exhibition came as a result of a trip to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose.  The animals were so expressive, like the Emu who got very demanding when he found out we didn’t have any food for him.  As we drove through the Wildlife Center, I couldn’t help but wonder what some of the animals would say if they could talk to us.”
Tracy Dominguez is a non-traditional student who has embraced an opportunity to follow her dream of obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Studio Art emphasis.  After serving in the United States Air Force for over 28 years, she enrolled in the art program at Tarleton State University and is looking forward to pursuing her second career as an artist after graduation this semester.   Her time in the military allowed her to travel throughout Europe, and she plans to resume traveling and exploring to provide inspiration and subject matter for her future works of art.
 All Art and Digital Media majors are required to give a public presentation of their work during their Senior Exhibit.  There will be a Q and A  from faculty and students, are all welcome to attend.  The lecture will be Tuesday, December 2nd, at noon in the Fine Arts Gallery.  All events are free and open to the public.
