Join the opening reception & meet the artists! 

Join us for the opening of Two Reflections: Korean and American Artists Confront Humanity and Nature, a new joint exhibition featuring works by two accomplished artists, one American and one Korean: Don Kimes and Suh Yongsun. Two Reflections draws thematic connections and contrasts between the visual languages of these artists, each of whom portrays a common sense of anguish brought about by different fundamental and inescapable forces in life: nature and humanity. 

While Kimes' work reflects on recovering his creative life in the wake of a natural disaster, Suh explores the universal struggle of individuals to live in just harmony with society. Both of these forces are integral components of the human experience, and both artists arrive at a similar creative destination despite being culturally and stylistically distinct -- a sublimation of their cultural differences to the universality of their artistic languages. 

Admission to the opening reception including talks by the artists on Friday, Dec. 8 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required (below). Two Reflections will remain on view through Jan. 24, 2018.
