Please join us for an informal open studio on Wednesday January 6th in building 205 at Fort Worden State Park. Centrum artist in residence Gillchun Koh of South Korea will open his studio doors from 10am. Centrum will host a reception for the artist between 4 and 6pm.
Gillchun has created large origami representations of the Chetzemoka, a wooden boat that sits on the shoreline of Fort Worden beach. Suspended among colorful paper lanterns, the Chetzemoka boats will be free to "fly" inside and outside of the studio. A special treat is the life size graphite frottage (rubbing) of the boat… arguably one of the most photographed images in Port Townsend.
A graduate of Chosun University (Kwangju) and Honk-Ik University (Seoul), Gillchun's work has been shown across Asia and the United States. He is at Centrum for his second residency, living and working at Fort Worden State Park.
Directions: Enter via the Fort Worden main gate and proceed to the four way stop. Go straight and look for building 205 on your right. There will be parking across the street and behind the building. The studio is upstairs.
