Dr. Eric Avery, M.D is our 2016 Juror. Avery is a celebrated printmaker and recently retired physician who for decades has practiced medicine and art in tandem. His complexly layered work connects issues of printmaking and art history with social concerns of public health, human rights abuse and responses to HIV/AIDS, death, sexuality and the body. Creating powerful historical records of experience with patients, he changes the ordinary role of a doctor into an artist inspired by healing, fusing the space between art and medicine. Before his retirement, he was clinical associate professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and member of the Institute for Medical Humanities, The University of Texas Medical Branch, specializing in issues related to HIV/AIDS. In addition to being the subject of numerous gallery exhibitions, Avery’s work is found in many prestigious permanent collections including the British Museum, London; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Fletcher H. Dyer, the exhibit’s namesake, was age 22 when he 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 for an art and design student.
