Quesnel Art Gallery debuts artist Cyndi Cassidy in her show, Circles

Artist Cyndi Cassidy opened her show at the Quesnel Art Gallery on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Her show, entitled Circles, is a display of her diverse mediums, each piece representing the cyclical pattern of life in circular arrangements.

“The circles of life, circles in nature, sacred circles, cultural circles … are everywhere in the universe. In all of these things the circle starts from a central point going outwards in a symmetrical fashion.”

Drawn from her desire to express this, Cassidy’s art evolved over 40 years, from her start as a knitting designer to lace-knitting circular shapes to extremely detailed pen and ink drawings, macro photography and digital art featuring rounded patterns. Her varied pieces are products of her love for “playing with colours, shapes, patterns, textures and images (and her) need to learn one new thing every day.”

Cassidy’s assortment of form is proof of this.

Since moving to Quesnel from Wells 16 years ago, she has volunteered at art shows and has become the treasurer of the Quesnel Art Gallery. For the past five years, Cassidy has displayed her work in group shows, but this is her first solo show.

Circles runs through October and closes Nov. 4. The Quesnel Art Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
