Art Fair, Seoul Korea
One of my pen, ink and white charcoal drawings, Winch, Herring Smoke Shed is being exhibited in the 5th Seoul Art Fair in South Korea, from April 27 to May 1, 2012. Work by Canadian Artists is on display in a booth sponsored by the South Korean art magazine, 미술과 비평 (Art and Criticism). The Art Fair is being held at the Seoul Trade Exhibition and Convention Centre, SETEC. The subject of my 8” x 10” drawing is a handmade, wooden winch, located in the Sardine Museum and Herring Hall of Fame, at Seal Cove, Grand Manan, New Brunswick. The museum, established by the late Michael Zimmer, preserves the traditional environment of a herring smoke house and is open for visits during the summer months. The Seal Cove Herring Sheds are designated as a Canadian National Historic Site. More than 370 artists participated in the event according to the Korean Herald.
