Langley City is currently exhibiting artwork from two renowned Korean artists, Han-ji Artist Michelle Kim and Master Potter Jung Hong Kim.

After holding a successful workshop, Langley City is welcoming back Kim to the Cultural Connections Gallery (main floor in front of the finance foyer) at the Timms Community Centre.

The free in-person demonstration on Friday, Feb. 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. will take place

“We had an amazing experience and wanted to come back since we sincerely appreciate an opportunity like this to share Korean cultures,” said Master Potter Jeong Hong Kim.

Yu Kyung (Michelle) Kim was born in Gwangju, South Korea, and has been deeply captivated with the arts since childhood; in particular, crafts that have refined her own visual and conceptual style through her focus on the points of intersection between modern and classical.

She loves to use her hands and natural materials to capture a likeness creatively, so it’s been her joy to discover Han-ji Arts and crafts in years since graduation of Seoul Institute of the Arts.

Master Potter Kim has had many exhibitions throughout the Lower Mainland including the Museum of Vancouver and at the Korean Cultural Heritage Festival for the past 16 years.

In addition to making traditional Korean-style pottery, with inlaid slips and a celadon glaze, Master Kim has been giving pottery lessons.

This exhibition will be on display from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday, until Friday, February 14, 20399 Douglas Crescent.

For more information on the exhibition, people can contact Kim Hilton, director of recreation, culture and community services at 604.514.2866 or khilton@langleycity.ca.
