Eastern Washington University Gallery of Art is pleased to present “Field Research,” an exhibition of recent works by Roger Ralston, March 13 through April 25, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, March 13 at noon in the EWU Gallery of Art.

According to an university news release, Ralston is an artist and teacher living in Spokane. His work includes public art, installations, small-scale sculpture, drawings and web-based activities.

When developing an idea, Ralston researches extensively the history of the place. A part of this work is having a feel of the place and how people move through and kinetically know a place. As an aspect of this, Ralson is interested in the beauty of the everyday and captures this is in his work.

“I work in conversation with a tactile physical world, using a vaguely framed wanderlust of investigation,” Ralston wrote in his artist’s statement. “I collect and sort things, materials and bits into an indigestible amalgam.”

Ralston received his master of fine arts from Louisiana State University and a bachelor of science from Lewis and Clark College in Portland Ore. He is thrilled to live in the West, where the environment inspires him daily.

Eastern Washington University Gallery of Art is located in the Art Building situated in the Center of the Fine and Performing Arts Complex on the EWU campus in Cheney.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed weekends and holidays. Admission is free.
