Tayler Parkin's "And the All" performance with clay is featured at Eastern Washington University's "Traces of" Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition running May 23 – June 6 at the Art Building's Gallery of Art on campus.

According to a May 13 news release, the exhibition features the work of graduating seniors enrolled in the BFA program, and includes works of five candidates working in a variety of media and content. Sierra Dawson uses digital photography processes to explore how echoes of memories shape our present moments while Darlene Gibson uses mixed media to create sculptural visions taking on personal spiritual emphasis.

Erik Sullivan's new process of art-making blends intuitive and formal methods. Madeline McGinn explores the marks of handwriting with lithography and ceramics to understand grief and anxiety while Tayler Parkin's works emphasize performance and time-based actions to discover the idea of "experience being content."

According to the release, EWU's BFA program "is unique" in that it "offers art students the chance to develop a fully realized body of work that is developed through research and experimentation." In collaboration with mentors, students "can focus on traditional and interdisciplinary methods of studio art within sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, digital and ceramics."

It is the only BFA program offered in the immediate region.

EWU's Gallery of Art is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is free.
