ALTOONA — An exhibition of work by Taehee Kim will be on display in the Sheetz Gallery of the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts January 12 - February 19, 2012. A reception will be held 3 - 5 p.m., Thursday, January 12 in the Titelman Study of the Center.

Kim received her BFA from Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea, in 1992 and her MFA from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, in 2003. Recent juried exhibitions include Digital Works: National Juried Competition, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, Loveladies, NJ, and The Edge of Excess II, Foundry Art Centre, St. Charles, MO, in 2011. In 2005 Kim received Best in Show, at the 3rd Cleveland Biennial Juried Exhibition, craft media, Cleveland State University, Cleveland, OH. She also received third place at the Digital Works: National Juried Competition, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, Loveladies, NJ, in 2011. Kim is an assistant professor at Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, TX.

Kim states, "My body of work is exploring an intersection of aesthetic development with scientific methods and technology, employing nano-technology with semiconductor materials, x-ray lithography, optic and electronic microscopy, and LCD touch screen." She brings together art and science, stating that one does not exist without the other. She believes that new knowledge and opportunities will arise with combining both science and art.

The galleries are open Monday — Thursday, 10 a.m. — 2 p.m. and before and during all performances. For further information, call the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts at 814-949-5452.
