Craft Center displays Park exhibit through March 20

Katherine Park’s exhibit entitled, “New Beginning,” currently runs through March 20 in the North Windows Gallery at the Appalachian Center for Craft from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Through her sculptural furniture, Park tries to authenticate emotion into the work. The focus deals with the ever-changing points of life, when all one can do is step back and reflect.

“The decisions I have made and the reasons I found to help me continue on with my life are expressed in these works,” said Park.

Park holds a bachelor of fine arts degree in industrial design from Rhode Island School of Design and a master of fine arts degree in woodworking and furniture design from Rochester Institute of Technology.

She has applied experiences from around the world to her creative talents, studying in places such as Seoul, Korea; Florence, Italy; and Vienna, Austria.

The Appalachian Center for Craft is located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273. Go south on Hwy. 56 and turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge.
