Fletcher H. Dyer, age 22, was lost too soon in a motorcycle accident in Johnson City, TN on 11/5/2009. Fletcher was a senior in Art and Design at East TN State University concentrating in Graphic Design under a Bachelor of Fine Arts program. As an artist and graphic designer, Fletcher’s passion for art was a vehicle that allowed him to mirror his passion and marry it to his concern for social and political issues through visual means. THE FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT aspires to honor Fletcher H. Dyer’s legacy by providing a venue for artists to exhibit artworks that continue the dialogue. The exhibit's proceeds after expenses will fund the Fletcher H. Dyer Memorial Scholarship.
