Northwestern art professor to display work

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Three-dimensional work in which Northwestern College art professor Yun Shin explores themes of containment and preservation, including this plexiglass and cotton piece, will be exhibited at Northwestern’s Te Paske Gallery Aug. 20 through Sept. 13. 
“Reconstructive-Memory Process,” an exhibit by Northwestern College art professor Yun Shin, will be on display in NWC’s Te Paske Gallery Aug. 20 through Sept. 13. A public reception is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m.

Shin’s show will feature three-dimensional work as well as some paintings and drawings. Her art explores themes of containment and preservation—combining objects with materials in a way that evokes experiences of home and longing, tradition and surprise.

Born and raised in South Korea, Shin joined Northwestern’s faculty in 2012 after completing a Master of Fine Arts degree in studio art at the University of Texas. She also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in craft and material studies from Virginia Commonwealth University and a B.F.A. in industrial design from Cho-Sun University in South Korea. A sculptor and ceramist, she was a fellow at the Ox-Bow School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a resident artist at the Rochester Folk Art Guild in Middlesex, N.Y. Her work has been part of group exhibitions in Michigan and New York.

Northwestern’s Te Paske Gallery is located in the Thea G. Korver Visual Arts Center, on Highway 10 at 214 8th Street SW in Orange City. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
