Marylhurst's 2014 BFA thesis exhibition on display

Faculty art exhibited through June 15


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Bethany McCamishs  photography, including this untitled piece, are on display in the Art Gym through June 15.The 2014 Bachelor of Fine Arts thesis exhibition and a collection of works by art faculty are currently on display at the Art Gym at Marylhurst University.

As part of the display, a gallery talk with Marylhurst graduate Bethany McCamish will be held at 12:30 p.m. on June 12. Seating is limited; reservations can be made by emailing bshell@marylhurst.edu.

McCamish received her BFA degree in art with a concentration in photography from Marylhurst this month. She will be continuing her education at Concordia University this summer, working toward a Master of Art degree in teaching.

Her work has been included in various exhibitions, including the 2011 Student Art Annual at the Archer Gallery in Vancouver, Wash., and Photolucida’s “Then. Now. Here.” screenings throughout Portland.

McCamish has composed a series of large abstract color photographs called “Possible Perspectives.” Her images blur the urban environment and natural surroundings, allowing viewers to see and perceive the environment in a nonliteral way.

“Anytime our fundamental assumptions about time and space are altered, we must occupy a less comfortable place in our mind, one that invites new conceptual approaches and, in this case, new perceptions as well,” she said.

Pieces from her thesis will also be presented at the Recent Graduates exhibition at Blackfish Gallery in Portland during July.

The Marylhurst exhibits will continue through June 15.
