'Four Lefts and a Right' art exhibit opens at Fine Arts Gallery

Tim Harding Art Exhibit

Tarleton State University

Thursday, October 4, 2012

STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Artwork by Fort Worth-based visual artist Tim Harding will be on display during a month-long exhibit, “Four Lefts and a Right,” at Tarleton’s Fine Arts Gallery, located inside the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center.

The Department of Fine Arts welcomes the university community and public to view Harding’s work now through Friday, Nov. 2. The gallery will be open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is free.

Harding’s work explores the process of drawing as a performance. “I repeat simple marks and cuts numerous times in a work until the resulting object becomes less about the marks and more about the unseen activity of the mark making,” said the artist.

Harding is interested in the effect that using performance as an abstraction can have on the resulting piece. “The viewer does not experience the performance, but sees a representation of this act and forms a mental construct of it. This work marks a new direction in my ongoing exploration of one’s perception of place and time,” he added.

Harding, who currently serves as an adjunct art instructor in Tarleton’s Department of Fine Arts, will also host a brown bag lecture to discuss his art and techniques at noon, Thursday, Oct. 11 inside the Fine Arts Gallery.

An award-winning artist, Harding earned a bachelor’s of fine arts in painting from Texas Woman’s University, where he graduated magna cum laude before attending Texas Christian University’s School of Art where he earned a master’s of fine arts in painting. His professional experience includes serving as instructor at several North Texas colleges and universities, as well as an instructor for the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
