Art Fix: Art Springing Up In Daegu And Daejeon

It’s that time again: We’re switching up the artists at Gallery [t.]. Daegu artist Brandon Inman will be showing his illustrations for the next two months with an opening reception on August 12th at 7PM.  Brandon’s work was originally featured way back in our November 2012 issue, and was also a part of our very first [b] list exhibition at Gukje Art Museum at Keimyung University in Daegu last year. Which reminds me! The deadline for submissions to our second annual [b] list exhibition is approaching, so keep an eye on your calendars if you’re planning to submit your work for consideration.

If you’re in Daejeon this month be sure not to miss the Artist Residency Temi Inaugural Exhibition which includes impressive sculptural pieces from [b]racket artist Jürgen Dünhofen.  Jurgen’s pieces, along with work from five other artists, will be on display until April 20th. I’ll refrain from making a 4/20 joke here. Jürgen's sculptures have a real presence to them and each one deserves a closer look outside of the pages of [b]racket.

The weather is now officially perfect to spend your days off outdoors. Here’s a perfect way to do just that: Open every Saturday in April, Bangchun Art Market in Daegu will feature affordable crafts, jewelry, and art for sale. Not only is it free to walk around the market, but it’s also free for artists to participate and sell their own work. Foot traffic is high, so this would be a great place for artists and craftspeople to sell their work. If you’re an artist who is interested, visit the market’s facebook page and message the organizers (both of whom are past [b]racket artists) for more info.
 

To get to the art market, take the subway to Kyungpook National University Hospital Station on the green line. Go out exit 3 and walk straight towards the river. Take a right after VIPS Steakhouse and you can’t miss it.
