Sonny Assu is a Ligwilda&rsquo;xw of the Kwakwaka&rsquo;wakw Nations artist who resides in his ancestral home in Campbell River, British Columbia. &nbsp;</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; margin:0in 0in 10pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:normal"><span style="font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif"><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="font-family:&quot;Cambria&quot;,serif">Sonny Assu was raised in North Delta, British Columbia, over 150 miles away from his ancestral home. Having been raised as your everyday average suburbanite, it wasn&rsquo;t until he was eight years old that he discovered his heritage. Later in life, this discovery would be the conceptual focus that helped launch his unique art practice.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; margin:0in 0in 10pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:normal"><span style="font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif"><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="font-family:&quot;Cambria&quot;,serif">Assu&rsquo;s artistic practice is diverse: spanning painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, and printmaking. His work combines Western and pop culture references with Kwakwaka&rsquo;wakw imagery as a means of exploring his family history and his experiences of being an indigenous person in the colonial state of Canada.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; margin:0in 0in 10pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:normal"><span style="font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif"><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="background:white"><span style="font-family:&quot;Cambria&quot;,serif"><span style="color:black">Assu received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Emily Carr University in 2002 and was the recipient of their distinguished alumni award in 2006. He earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from Concordia University in 2017 and was one of the Laureates for the Hnatyshyn Foundation&rsquo;s 2017 REVEAL-Indigenous Art Awards. His work is included in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, Seattle Art Museum, Vancouver Art Gallery, Burke Museum at the University of Washington, Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, among others. </span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; margin:0in 0in 10pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:normal"><span style="font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif"><span style="font-size:12.0pt"><span style="background:white"><span style="font-family:&quot;Cambria&quot;,serif"><span style="color:black">Assu recently completed an artist residency at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich, United Kingdom.

She uses her own past experiences as inspiration for her work.</p><p>The opening of Hidden in Plain Sight will be on Tuesday,&nbsp; May 21 from 4pm to 6pm. The reception will be held at Gallery 231 in Randall Hall on the campus of Central Washington University. The exhibition will run through Friday, May 24.</p><p>“Thoughts, nightmares and flashbacks from abuse linger for years. After being abused it is hard to trust people again and let them near. There is no set package of healing that can be given.” Cassidy explains. “I use my artwork to provide a way of showing others that they are not alone and that there are ways of healing.”</p><p>Ceramics and photography are a main part of Cassidy’s work. Faces are used in her ceramic work to “portray the malicious intent of the abuser as well as the damaging emotions that are left in the abused.”</p><p>More of her work can be found on her website crescentartwork1.wixsite.com/cassidy-clemetson, and on her Instagram cassidy-crescentartwork.</p><p>Hidden in Plain Sight is open from May 21-24, gallery hours are from 9am- 6pm.

A 22-feet camping trailer will be turned into an interactive space that one can enter to view the exhibit.</p><p>“I have always been fascinated with the skies we live under. It all started when I was young and I was introduced to the concept of space. It all made me wonder how something so big and beautiful is out there all the time but one can’t really see it until darkness falls with the naked eye,” Pillai said. This is the first time any Central art student has done anything like this on this scale in the Fine Arts Program.</p><p>For the exhibit, “Our World”, Tara took an old travel trailer, gutted it’s interior and built it back up from the floors to ceiling entirely with her art. With paintings so big they won’t fit in the art building and over 50 ceramic tiles all crafted by hand, this exhibition can be viewed on the north side of Randall Hall at Central Washington University’s campus. This will be a one-day only event on Tuesday, May 14.</p><p>Tara Pillai says about her artwork, “I wanted to create something that is bigger than my imagination. That is why I chose to have my senior show in an old camping trailer. A trailer that is used to escape and see the world, instead I bring the world that I see inside. The whole idea of my exhibit is to immerse the viewer into my world, a world that I picture a happy place that I go to when I feel the real world is taking a toll on me.”</p><p>A reception for “Our World” will be held Tuesday, May 14 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in an old camp trailer parked on the northside of Randall Hall along Dean Nicholshon Blvd at Central Washington University. The exhibit will be open one day only from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on May 14.</p><p>Randall Hall is located at 44444 E Dean Nicholson Blvd, in Ellensburg.

She encapsulates foraged, natural objects, including leaves, bark, flowers, and seed pods, in clay. She then embeds them in larger sculptural forms crafted from branches and man-made nylon fabric. Their ethereal and fossilized beauty encourages viewers to contemplate humanities’ subjugation and loss of nature. Layne works as a Gallery Assistant at Gallery One Visual Arts Center, and recently received the 2019 CWU College of Arts and Humanities Artistic Achievement Award.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;line-height: normal"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Cambria&quot;,serif;mso-ascii-theme-font: major-latin;mso-hansi-theme-font:major-latin;mso-bidi-font-family:&quot;Apple Symbols&quot;; color:#333333">&nbsp;</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:normal"><span style="font-size:12.0pt; font-family:&quot;Cambria&quot;,serif">Jeremy Irvin’s body of work merges Modernist aesthetics with jewelry’s traditions.
