International Deadline: August 31, 2018 – The 2018 6th Annual FL3TCH3R Exhibit is an international juried exhibit focused on socially and politically engaged art.
Socially and politically engaged art has been integral in creative

the current trends and trajectory in this field and these collective

transformation and exposure of social and political points of view. The
goal is to recognize and advance this endeavor by providing a venue for
the exhibition of socially and politically engaged art.

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. FL3TCH3R Exhibit entries “should
reflect current issues that affect contemporary culture and investigate
societal and political concerns”.
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.
In the four years of the exhibit, nearly 1,500 entries have been considered from 17 countries, including the U.S.
