Carita Murphy and Erin Brittle exhibit their artwork to complete their bachelor of fine arts at Central Washington University.

Treacly Semblance opens for a reception at 6 p.m. Monday, May 22 through Friday, May 26. The gallery opening is in Gallery 231 on the second floor in Randall Hall on Dean Nicholson Boulevard in Ellensburg.

Murphy, a ceramicist and photographer, is an Auburn Mountainview High School and Green River College alumnus. Through ceramics, she depicts the abstraction of memory and the passage of time. Drawing inspiration from intimate objects that are utilized daily, she hopes to illuminate the viewers experiences with these objects. Within photography, she captures the absence and presence of light. Her subject matter focuses on shadows and the distortion of light that alter how structures are perceived.

Brittle is a painter and sculptor. Her work honors the human body’s ability to maintain health while consumed in disease. She focuses on textures of skin and organs on amorphous forms to create a sense of stagnancy that will eventually take over the form itself. With each piece, she hopes to achieve a sense of acknowledgement that inner processes are working to keep the body alive, however useless their efforts may be.

Through a stylized perspective, Brittle hopes to both prod at the viewer’s physical senses while creating a new appreciation for the capabilities of the human immune system. Brittle is a Yelm High School alumnus.
