Eunkang Koh Exhibition

Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery
Church Fine Arts Building
University of Nevada, Reno

Nov. 19 - Dec. 14, 2007
exhibition: Eunkang Koh

Nov. 29 - Opening lecture and reception

Sheppard Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition that will feature the artwork of new University of Nevada, Reno Art Department faculty member Eunkang Koh. A brochure catalog will also be available. Ms. Koh was hired in 2006 to revive the Department’s printmaking area. Her prints and books include various methods: traditional and digital printmaking as well as non-toxic processes. Fascinated with human nature and heavily influenced by her upbringing in Buddhism, Confucianism and Korean belief, Ms. Koh’s narrative prints center on human/animal combinations of fantastical new creatures, participating in a world where “they exist without knowing who and how they are,” as Ms. Koh writes in her artist statement. Ms. Koh holds a BA and MA from Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Korea and a MFA from California State University, Long Beach.

Anthony Alston: Inertia Displaced

November 12- December 21, 2007
26 Cheney Street

"Focusing on disrupted patterns and sporadic actions, the exhibition itself functions as an interruption—or acceleration—of a gallery's typical cycle; every two weeks of the exhibition, different work replaces the previous pieces. While visitors can expect to see works in video, sculpture, and sound, their experience will undoubtedly be different depending upon which phase is currently on display."
