Gallery Exhibition: Hon Eui Chen - After the Sun 

Joan and Robert Rechnitz Hall - 9 AM

Born in a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodia border, Hon Eui Chen moved to Mississippi at the age of six. Growing up in the American South, while still trying to preserve memories of her childhood in Asia brought up questions about identity that influence her work. The concept of travel and memory are also embedded in her current series of mixed media paintings – layered earthy, dark colored background with graphite drawn trees and foliage and an overlay of concrete.

Gallery Exhibition: Heeseop Yoon

Jan 21-Apr 10

Gallery Exhibition: Heeseop Yoon 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 9 AM

Heeseop Yoon studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received her MFA from City University of New York and BFA from Chung-Ang University in Korea. Yoon’s subjects—interiors of junk shops and storage facilities—test the ability of the line to make order out chaos. Working from photographs, Yoon draws her subject matter freehand on sheets of transparent polyester film that are later attached to the gallery wall. She retains her exploratory sketches, her mistakes, and the corrections on each drawing. The lines not only situate the forms in the clutter, they also cross over, search out, and assess the entire scene. Illustrated Lecture: February 5, Wilson Hall Auditorium, 4:30 - 5:30 pm, Opening Reception: February 5, from 7 - 9 pm
