Established in memory of Barbara and Wayne Dyer’s son, Fletcher, a BFA senior at ETSU who passed away in 2009 in a motorcycle accident, the FL3TCH3R international juried exhibit focuses on work with strong social and/or political content. In addition to providing an opportunity for socially relevant expression, the FL3TCH3R Exhibit supports the annual Fletcher H. Dyer Memorial Scholarship for an ETSU Art & Design student. Entries for the 2017 FL3TCH3R Exhibit will be selected by illustrator/painter Anita Kunz, a visual artist whose work has made her one of The National Post’s 50 most influential women in Canada and whose magazine covers for The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Time, Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair and Fortune and jacket covers for more than 50 books have reached readers the world-round.
