TWU’s graduate art exhibition opens

Senior art students explore what it means to be human in mixed-media exhibition

Senior art and design students at Trinity Western University are celebrating the culmination of their work with Coalesce, an exhibition that showcases each student’s distinctive voice.

Running March 27 to April 29, the show’s eight artists — Emily Arnett, Jacquelyn Miller, Kiersten Sawchuk, Bailey Snider, Hannah Stover, Cassie Thorpe, Rachel Voth and Sarah Wright — weave together narratives, both personal and universal, to explore themes of embodiment, speculation and memory.

“The Art + Design program at TWU allowed me the freedom to explore many different types of art mediums,” says Bailey Snider, who hails from Walla Walla, WA. “The wide variety of classes gave me the opportunity to try things I never saw myself doing. It was challenging and rewarding.”

Snider’s senior project includes large-scale tapestries, focused on narrative and story telling.

A mixed media exhibition, Coalesce represents several bodies of student created work, which have been altered and refined throughout these students’ education.

Though each tale is as unique as the artist who tells it, the stories enmesh to create ongoing engagement with culture and our inner selves. This mixed-media exhibition, featuring the work of TWU’s graduating Art + Design students, invites you to share in a dialogue exploring what it means to be human — and to revel in the collective uncertainty that goes with it.

“It’s amazing to see each artist’s progression right before our eyes as we create,” Snider says. “This exhibition is a celebration of all we’ve learned and accomplished in our art education.”
