Artist Bio

Artist Allen CassidyAllen Cassidy


Allen Cassidy was born and raised in Crescent City and moved to Eureka in 2000.

Allen started painting and making paper mache sculptures when he was in high school. Allen's vibrant paintings are populated with archetypal animals, people, buildings and vehicles. Allen shows a strong sense of color composition and dynamic design principles.

Many of Allen's ceramic sculptures are anthropomorphized animals. He is also a part of the Figure Sculpture class and has created some wonderful interpretations of the people who have posed for the class.

In addition to painting and sculpture, Allen is involved in all of the classes offered at The Studio and most of the group projects that occur here. He is a part of The Sketch Club, a small group of artists who draw portraits at local fairs.

Allen is also enthusiastically engaged in drama and video projects. He was a part of The Dream Project, a multi media performance in May 2008. Cassidy has produced several short films, some featuring dogs, a subject he is very enthusiastic about.

Allen's latest video premiered at the Arcata Theater Lounge's Film Slam.
