One student from the University of Houston-Clear Lake’s School of Human Sciences and Humanities is thanking the university’s Art and Design program and its faculty by donating all of the profits from the sale of her original artwork t-shirts and prints from her business, T-Squirts, to the UHCL Art Gallery. Briana Jameyson also known by her artistic pseudonym Jury Judge who is a senior graduating in the spring commencement ceremony, has sold her creative t-shirts for $10 and her prints for $5 each Tuesday throughout the spring semester in the university’s Student Services and Classroom Building Lobby, 2700 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, 77058.
Jameyson designs each shirt with her own original artwork before having them professionally screen printed.
“Juxtaposing humor and art is an irresistible combination for me,” says Jameyson. “One of the most dynamic characteristics of art on a t-shirt is that it is wearable art.”
Although selling the t-shirts at the school is a time-demanding commitment, Jameyson doesn’t keep any of the profits for herself. Instead, she donates the profit to benefit the UHCL Art Gallery — her way of giving back to the university before her graduation.
"As a student, I have had such a fantastic experience at UHCL,” says Jameyson. “The talented faculty in the Art and Design program that include professors Stuart Larson, Anne Henry and Lee Anne Kortus has created a supportive environment where the students can thrive both academically and creatively.”
“Briana is an extremely talented designer, as evidenced by the fact that she has already sold hundreds of dollars’ worth of tee-shirts. We are tremendously fortunate that she is donating the profits to the gallery and are deeply indebted to her for her generosity,” said UHCL Art Gallery’s Coordinator of Audience Development Jeffrey Bowen.
