Korean-born artist Sun-Young Park studied oriental fine art at Dong-A University in South Korea earning her Bachelors degree in Fine Arts in 1996 and a Masters of Arts in 1999. She has worked as a high school teacher and university lecturer and has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Korea.

The artist states, "My subject matter comes primarily from nature; flowers, butterflies, wind, and mountains. I use oriental inks and Korean papers but also use non-traditional materials such as gesso, coffee, soil, cloth, and acrylic as a means to elaborate on colors and feelings in a modern sense."

FLOWERS IN SPRING will be on display in the Copper Country Community Arts Center’s Kerredge Gallery April 3 through 28. The Community Arts Center is located at 126 Quincy Street in Hancock. For more information call (906) 482-2333.

This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
