Clarkson professor to show artwork in Syracuse exhibit

Bang-Geul Han is among 63 artists selected to show their works in a community-wide, multi-venue exhibition which opens this week in Syracuse and runs until Oct. 19.

Han is an assistant professor of digital arts and sciences at Clarkson University.

The Everson Museum of Art organized the exhibit, titled "The Other Side of New York 2012" or TONY: 2012.

The exhibit will be on display all around the city, and will have an opening ceremony on September 13.

Han's photo is featured on the cover of the September/October issue of Central New York Magazine with an article about the event.

"I'm not really sure how that happened," she says of the cover photo, "but I'm excited about the exhibition. I show all over the world, most recently in New York City, and I can say the level of professionalism in Syracuse is very impressive."

Han has managed to merge art with high technology, as her two pieces in TONY: 2012 prove. One mural-sized piece she created last year, "Taaz," shows row after row of tiny pictures of her wearing different hairstyles.

Han received her bachelor's degree in painting from Seoul National University, Korea, and her master's degree in electronic integrated arts from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred College of Technology.

In addition to having her work in the TONY: 2012 showings, Han will be presenting at a conference about the arts and technology in October in New York City, as well as showing her work in a Montreal gallery.

She is also designing an interactive installation for the documentary project "American Promise," which will premiere at the acclaimed Sundance Film Festival.

Han joined the faculty at Clarkson in 2009, teaching drawing, interactive art and game design.
