November 2017 Program


Shin-hee Chin

Our November speaker is a native of South Korea and Professor of Fine Arts at Tabor College, Chin is recognized as a leader in the world of contemporary fiber arts and is personally connected with Eisenhower and his impact on the Korean peninsula. Chin recently completed her artist-in-residence at the Red Barn Studio in Lindsborg, Kan.
When fiber artist Shin-hee Chin creates her art, it is almost as if her hand is guided by an unseen force. Her work of sewing, weaving with fiber creates works of art that touch the soul. She feels all emotions in her work, but mostly she is touched by women, whose work is never appreciated. Chin’s process of merging threads into two-dimensional and three-dimensional works embodies a number of meaningful viewpoints.

Shin-hee said on a Hatteberg’s People interview, “I think the human face is the most interesting. Everybody has the same features, but everybody is different and that fascinates me!”

The newly renovated Hutchinson Art Center was reopened August of this year. Shin-hee Chin was one of the featured artists at a public reception to honor the revealing of the Center.

Our afternoon lecture will be A Woman’s Work (theme) and the evening will be A Woman’s Work (materials & technique).
