Last week, I went to the opening of the Cultural Olympiad exhibit ‘Art of Craft’ at the Museum of Vancouver. The exhibit, a cultural exchange between Canada and Korea, features craft artists from across Canada as well as Korea.
These are the three parts represented at the museum:
Unity & Diversity: Selected Works – 75 pieces from across Canada recently on display at the 2009 Cheongju International Craft Biennale in the Republic of Korea.
By Hand/BC and Yukon – 51 pieces from Canada’s West Coast with a focus on the artists’ creative processes and studio environments.
Craft from the Republic of Korea – 47 pieces demonstrating the excellence of traditional and contemporary crafts.
I am honoured to have one of my tea sets in the By Hand/BC and Yukon part of the exhibit. If you find yourself in Vancouver between now and April 11, I highly recommend you have a look at this exhibit.
