Ocular Obstinance – a Tarleton student film & media festival

Tarleton Art/Digital Media Studies, in collaboration with the Tarleton Student Film Club, presents a juried (competitive) student media festival, screening as a special public cinematic event in late August, 2018. 

What qualifies?

Video art, short films, animations, game/digital environment art – anything that moves that can be projected onto a cinema screen. Work does not need to be strictly narrative or linear – experimental videos will also be considered.

Only work submitted by Tarleton Students and alumni will be considered, however, videos do not have to have been created for a specific class or specific year at Tarleton – it can be work that you produce independently, outside of class time, or even after you graduate. Submitted films don’t have to your most recent work, just your best.

All videos should be under 10 minutes.

Awards

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)

Baylor University and Tarleton State University are excited to bring to Waco a series of free, public lectures concerning the art of photography the weekend of October 13-15, 2017. These events are part of the 2017 Society for Photographic Education’s South Central Regional Conference (SPESC). This year’s theme is called THIS, THAT, or The OTHER: Considering the Emerging Trends and Vernacular in Photography. It is sponsored by a partnership of Baylor University and Tarleton State University.  These events are also free to the public due to the support of grants from Texas Humanities, and the Texas Photographic Society.

 

The first free, public lecture will be featuring photographers Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison on October 13, 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the Jones Theater in the Hooper-Schaeffer Fine Arts Center at Baylor University.   Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison are a husband and wife duo who have been making photographs together for almost 20 years. Their work focuses on the relationship between humans and the environment.
The ParkeHarrisons’ work can be found in over 20 prestigious museum collections, and their book The Architect’s Brother was named one of the ten best photography books by the New York Times in 2000.

The second free public lecture will be on Saturday, October 14th from 7:00 to 9 pm and will feature Charlotte Cotton. This lecture will also take place at the Jones Theater in the Hooper-Schaeffer Fine Arts Center at Baylor University. Charlotte Cotton is a curator, writer and creative consultant who has explored photographic culture for over twenty years. She has held positions including curator of photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum, head of programming at The Photographers’ Gallery in London and the curator, head of the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and curator-in-residence at the International Center of Photography, NY. Her book, The Photograph as Contemporary Art, is published in ten languages and has been a key text in its charting of the rise of photography as an undisputed art form in the 21st century.

All events are free and open to the public.  If you have any questions, please write them to Chris Ireland at Ireland@tarleton.edu
