BRUSH TO RICE PAPER: AN EXHIBITION OF KOREAN ART
Through Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018
Art Gallery, Main Level, Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library

Showcasing the art of two classes held by Gemma Joon Bae, Brush on Rice Paper features traditional Korean brush art taught in Utah. The exhibition will include works by students, as well as their instructor, illustrating the customs and symbolism of Korean art while also demonstrating that art itself is all-inclusive. The students consist of docents from UMFA (many of whom have been at the museum for over a decade) and Korean-American women who volunteer together at St Vincent’s Community Center soup kitchen. The classes are relatively new, originally starting in early spring of last year.

Artists: Kelly Park, Elaine England, Soonbok Holley, Rosemary Chung, Brigitte Kirk, Anita Gander, GayLynne Sylvies, Gemma Joon Bae, Geri Siegel, Cindy Bruce, Esther Quintana, Kyong Kim

Artists’ statement: We, the students of Gemma Joon Bae, study and practice the art of traditional Korean watercolor painting with the goal of developing an understanding and appreciation of the techniques, beauty, and universality of Korean art. With this study, we have learned ways by which a culture may be explored and better understood through its customs. While art forms are unique to a particular culture or school of thought, the desire to participate and share in art is universal.
