Brandie Smith – BFA Exhibition opening Monday 11/2, Brown bag lecture at noon on 11/3


The Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery at Tarleton State University presents the first exhibition in the BFA Senior Exhibition series of Fall 2015. Post Baccalaureate student Brandie Smith will be presenting She, an abstract exploration of memories in paragraphs and photographs, November 1-5 2015. The exhibition will be at the Clyde H. Well Fine Arts Gallery. Brandie is seeking a BFA with a Digital Media emphasis. A lecture will be held November 3rd at noon and a public reception November 4 from 5 to 7pm.

With this body of work Brandie is interested in digging through her memories and expressing them as her truths. The raw memories are presented on the walls using  straightforward, clean text. The photographs overlaying the text are macro images of Brandie’s skin that are reimagined in an abstract way. With this exhibition she is reconnecting with who she is as well as bringing to light the way we connect as human beings. This work is the starting point for Brandie to continue her career as an artist and graphic designer.

The gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information contact gallery advisor Chris Ireland,
