Artwork by renowned Tabor College artist and Assistant Professor of Art and Graphic Design Shin-hee Chin is on display at her new Web site gallery, www.shinheechin.com.
“The purpose of my Web site is to promote my artwork as well as Tabor College,” Chin said. “Indeed, I have long wanted to construct my own Web site. Although my Web site still needs some refinement, I am grateful that I was able to finish it with limited knowledge on Web construction.”
Chin, who teaches Drawing I, Painting II, and Basic Design II (color) at Tabor, became a student of Web design before creating her own site this past summer during an art residency at Red Barn Museum in Lindsborg.
The new Web site contains photos of her artwork, curriculum vitae, and an artist’s statement describing Chin’s philosophy and creative process.
Recognized as one of the world’s foremost artists, Chin won “Best of Show” at the Fiber Focus 2007 exhibit in St. Louis, Mo., and was one of three finalists for the prestigious 2008 Lillian Elliott Award, an international honor sponsored by the Textile Society of America.
Her work “Choon San” (Spring Mountain) was accepted for the Chinese Quilt National 2009 Exhibit, and was on display in the Cultural Arts Center in China.
In addition to her teaching duties at Tabor, Chin is working on several artworks for the 10th Japan International Quilt Show and the Houston International Quilt Festival in 2010.
