Hidden in Plain Sight: A Senior BFA exhibition by Cassidy Clemetson

Why do some people feel the need to harm others?  In Cassidy Clemetson’s exhibition she explores different forms to represent abuse and the harmful emotions that are left behind. She uses her own past experiences as inspiration for her work.

The opening of Hidden in Plain Sight will be on Tuesday,  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.

“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.”

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.”

More of her work can be found on her website crescentartwork1.wixsite.com/cassidy-clemetson, and on her Instagram cassidy-crescentartwork.

Hidden in Plain Sight is open from May 21-24, gallery hours are from 9am- 6pm. Randall Hall is located at 44444 E Dean Nicholson Blvd, in Ellensburg. Parking is free in University lots after 4:30 pm.
