Tarleton Art and Digital Media Studies Senior Exhibitions

Nine students graduating from the Art/Digital Media Studies program this Spring will be showcasing their work in senior exhibits starting November 1st through December 4th at the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery.  Because of the number of graduates, there will be a rotation of five shows in the gallery during that time.  This gives the opportunity for the artists to mount a professional exhibition of a complete body of work that showcases a cohesive portfolio in the field of study the student intends to focus on upon graduation.

The first show, from November 1st-6th will be a solo exhibition of the work of Teejay Handley.  His design work for stock racing cars is inspired from a life long passion for racing and gaming.  The second exhibition runs from November 8th through the 13th and will feature Noelle Ross and Matt Vanderpool.  Matt’s photographic work displays a unique view of the American road side service station, while Noelle’s character design work is based off her own creations and fantasy stories.  The third exhibit runs from November 14th – 17th and will feature two digital media majors Nacona Ferrell and Macklin McAllister. Nacona and Macklin will both be premiering their new video games that will be available in playable form in the gallery.  Cory Cervantes and Kaitlin Hooper’s photographic work will be displayed during the fourth exhibit running from November 20-28th.  Finally, from November 29th to December 6th, the gallery will be filled with the sculptural works of Rebecca Cox and Destany Seymore.

Senior advisor and art professor Chris Ireland states, “we have another semester of many graduates coming from all kinds of areas of research.  Each week there will be new and interesting forms of work that our seniors have worked very hard to complete.  The art department is proud of its seniors and the diversity of the types of research our students are doing this year.  I think you will see in each senior a signature style and creative approach to their craft. They are self-motivated and engaged in their fields at a professional level.  “ (from press release by Chris Ireland)
