    Seho Park Paintings at Watkins Gallery

    Seho Park Paintings at Watkins Gallery

    Today on Art Beat we talk to artist Seho Park. 
    Professor Seho Park has taught art education, drawing, and two-dimensional design courses at Winona State University since 1988. His current show, Paintings, draws from work he made during his 2022-23 sabbatical. Professor Park attended an artist residency in Seoul, Korea for much of his sabbatical year and exhibited in Seoul several times while on leave from teaching. 
    Today, we take you to the Watkins Art Gallery on the Winona State University campus to speak with Seho Park about his new exhibit, including his inspiration for his paintings as well as his thoughts on art overall. I’m Ryan Flanders, pull up alongside your radio and well, park it, as we bring you Seho Park and his Paintings, today on Art Beat.

    Winona Art Walk 2023 Part 3

    Winona Art Walk 2023 Part 3

    Winona has a pretty great art scene for a city its size. Today on Art Beat we take you back to the Winona Art Walk 2023. Back in November several local studios opened their doors to the public so that we could all share in some local hometown art. There was so much art to see on the 2023 Art Walk that we decided to break it down into several episodes of Art Beat. On today’s episode, KQAL’s Ventress Heron takes us to Island City Clayspace and Grace Presbyterian Church to visit with some local artists. That’s the Winona Art Walk 2023, today on Art Beat.
