Still haven’t finished unpacking my studio but I’m thrilled about my first group exhibition in Houston honoring Frida Kahlo’s legacy at East End Studio Gallery (at Nance and Hardy Studios) on April 8th, curated by Lizbeth Ortiz, known for her annual Frida Festival (going on its 11th year). Also, I’ve been invited to show one of my artist’s books in Venice at “Scrolls” at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia in Italy (Ap.14-21) and to join a group show to honor the anniversary exhibition of a great dutch artist: Norbert Wille at Jan Et Piet Museum in Netherlands (May 7th).
Moving to Houston from S. Korea early this year after 7 1/2 years of making art and having such wonderful Asian country as home means both opportunities and challenges at personal and artistic levels, however doors always open when we put hard work and the heart on what we do.
