The Department of Fine Arts at Tarleton State University will present an exhibition entitled Slow Grease, by multimedia artist Sarah Paul. The exhibition will be on view weekdays in the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Gallery, February 17th to March 21st 2014.

Sarah Paul is a cross disciplinary artist focusing on the intersection of popular culture, fine art and social action. She strives to balance sociopolitical content with compelling visual structure. Her videos, installations and performances integrate infectious vocal melody, luscious moving images, humor, and maximal theatrical spectacle. Most of her work derives from an outrageous narrative that she has concocted in order to explore a marginalized subject. She is always rooting for the underdog. In the past she has supported such underdogs as fat ladies, gender queers, and the mentally ill. At the moment, her underdog is Cleveland, the place where she lives and works.

Sarah Paul is currently serving as chair of the Digital Arts Department at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She received her MFA from the University of New York at Buffalo, NY in 2007. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of New York at Albany. Recent exhibitions include the 7th Annual Women’s Caucus for Art International Video Shorts Festival in New York, NY, and the traveling exhibition Goodnight Cleveland: A Little Miss Cleveland Bus Tour, which exhibited in Cleveland, OH, Detroit, MI, and Buffalo, NY.

Job Oppurtunity – Tarleton IT Department is seeking student workers

The IT department is seeking student workers.  This position is NOT being advertised on Hire A Texan, so if you are interested please contact Professor Ireland, or you may submit your resume to IT manager Stephen Wilson (wilson@tarleton.edu)  in the IT Building.  The IT department is looking for students who are interested in computers, how they work, and have the people skills and the work ethic to handle the service aspect of the job.  He does not expect you to be an IT major or be a total expert, and he is happy to teach needed skills and allow you to learn on the job, as long as you show a good work ethic.  I can tell you from experience there is nothing better on your resume than being able to say you have experience in customer service and tech support, because everyone likes having one of those guys/girls around in the workplace.
