Sojung Yu: Beyond the Truth

Friday, July 23, 2010

Sojung Yu's thesis show entitled "Beyond the Truth" opened on Wednesday at the Dewberry Gallery. The show displays the work from her MFA Thesis project that is a retelling of the Korean myth of Dangun. The finished project is in the form of a book entitled "The Bear", and the show has all of the artwork that appears in the book, as well as two large oil paintings of Barrett, the bear that is the pivotal character in the story.

This is the book that Sojung wrote and produced. She had it printed and bound through Blurb, and the results are quite good; the color is true and the cover and binding are first quality. I highly recommend them for portfolio books and for sample picture books such as this.

Sojung, Stephanie Green from Exhibitions, and Vice President P.J. Johnson. We are so grateful for the support from Exhibitions for helping our students get their work presented to the world in such a professional fashion and in such beautiful venues. And forever thankful for the ongoing support from P.J. Johnson, who always finds time to drop by to meet our students and to see the amazing work that you guys produce. Thanks, P.J., your support is very much appreciated!

Nazanin Kani dropped by to see Sojung's show.
