A Large-Scale Craft Exhibition at Sun Gallery
Lisa Vershbow, One of 90 Participating Artists
Ms. Lisa Vershbow, spouse of US Ambassador to Seoul Alexander Vershbow shows off her work of art.

A craft exhibition sponsored by the Korean Society of Craft and the Korea Craft Council will be held from March 3 to March 17, 2006 at the Sun Gallery in Insa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul. Local representatives of industrial art will be participating with 200 works in pottery, glass, fiber, metal and wood. The numerous works have been made according to four themes.

Ninety well-known local potters will be participating, as well as craftswoman Lisa Vershbow, spouse of Alexander Vershbow — U.S ambassador to Korea — who will be exhibiting her works for the public.

The show is aimed at extending the boundaries of the traditional pottery-making process which normally utilises only one raw material. The works in this exhibition will include pottery that is also blended with ceramic, fiber and glass.

Byun Kun-Ho, the head of The Korean Society of Craft said that ceramic craft is underestimated in comparison with other art forms in its value as a "pure art," although it has a long and illustrious history as a Korean art form.

This show will hopefully give this form of artistic expression the opportunity to be recognized as an important area of "pure art" as well as being loved by the public.

For details please contact Ms. Park Bu-Kyung, PR officer of Sun Gallery at 02-734-0458 or 010-2334-2111.
