Northwestern art professor to display work
Thursday, August 8, 2013
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.
