Texas Tech Graduate Student Showcases Artwork

“I was Hidden from Own Sight” features everyday objects rooted in Persian culture.

The Texas Tech University’s School of Art presents “I was Hidden from Own Sight: Paintings by Yasaman Moussavi,” an exhibition of works by Texas Tech master’s of fine arts candidate Yasaman Moussavi.

The exhibition is on view from 6 to 9 p.m. March 7 as part of First Friday Art Trail in the School of Art Satellite Gallery at CASP/LHUCA. The exhibit also is on view from 1 to 5 p.m. March 8.

Moussavi’s artwork utilizes drawing and large-scale oil painting to find subjectivity in the human experience and explore a reality often concealed. Moussavi creates self-portraits in which she is situated in a reality that is both familiar and beyond observable experience. From Iran, she uses everyday objects rooted in Persian culture and is inspired by vibrant patterns and colors of Iranian carpets and tiles.

The Texas Tech Satellite Gallery at LHUCA is located at 1108 Fifth Street. Gallery hours are 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

The exhibitions, speakers and related programs at Landmark Arts and the Texas Tech University School of Art are made possible by grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and The CH Foundation. Additional support comes from cultural activities fees administered through Texas Tech’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. Support for Satellite Gallery exhibitions comes from the Ryla T. & John F. Lott Endowment for Excellence in the Visual Arts, administered through the School of Art.
