Organized by the Somang Society, the exhibition features widely acclaimed Korean artist Jongkuk Lee's "Hanji," Korean paper sculptures handmade from mulberry trees. Lee's two and three dimensional works are made with Hanji and painted with mulberry paste, a process originally developed in the 3rd century CE and widely used in printmaking, to cover windows and doors, and to make armor, until Western methods of mass produced papermaking were developed in the 19th century CE. Lee returns to the roots of Korean culture in his revival of the tradition of Hanji. Also on view during the Somang Gallery Exhibition will be a collection of Korean artworks including prints and vases. All proceeds from the Somang Gallery Exhibition sales will support the mentally and physically handicapped.

You do need to prepare either money for lunch or bring a delicious lunch with you.

If you plan to drive there on your own, you NEED to email me. Here's a link to a free parking permit for that day. I have some already printed out in my office if you want to save time.
