We are exited and honored to announce our next international exhibit at the gallery celebrating the collaborative murals of Portland artists and Sun Mu from Korea. He is a very talented artist and we look forward to our festival event this spring to celebrate his culture and artwork. Take a sneak peek here at the continued mural work by our Portland artist, Essie Somma. If you want to learn about Sun Mu, his documentary 'I Am Sun Mu' is a must watch on Netflix. Stay tuned for details about our Korean cooking class, interview with Sun, a gallery tour and amazing Korean culture and dance. @essiesomma
We are delighted to see the murals from Sun Mu in person. They are so dynamic. John Teply, the Director, had a chuckle when he saw the missiles of North Korea and the US raining down on each other. He is interested in Sun's imagery of people in their last moments finding each other and having a last embrace or kiss. He is looking to explore the way that our culture is absorbed in electronic devices and that it would take an event like the one pictured to have them put down their devices. We hope to feature Sun Mu in our April exhibit so stay tuned. It will be fascinating to learn more about the North Korean defector.
