BC Gallery of Ceramics, Vancouver

I went to visit the BC Gallery of Ceramics today at Granville Island. If you are ever at Granville Island, go in and explore our local artists. The term ceramics includes porcelain, clay, stoneware and pottery. What is special about this gallery is it represents the best in BC since the work is chosen by…

Asian Art Museum, Seattle

Did you know that if you go to Seattle Art Museum, the same ticket can be used for admission at the Asian Art Museum at Volunteer Park, Capitol Hill. I didn’t get a chance to see the current exhibit at Asian Art but did go to Seattle Art Museum which I wrote about in an…

Seattle Art Museum

If you haven’t gone yet, Kehinde Wiley’s exhibit is closing soon. I learned that his portraits discuss the statement of power especially the image of the men on horses which symbolizes power. (I listened in on an art history class teacher discussing the artist.) Here are just a few images.         The rest…

The Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), New York

One thing you might not know about Vancouver is that we are close to many beaches and mountains. You can go skiing/hiking in the morning and go hit the beaches in the afternoon. Our geographic location allows you to do both in a day! You can bike along the seawall and enjoy our beaches as…

Museum of Modern Art MOMA NYC

Isa Genzken Rose II 2007 Remind me not to go on a Friday when it’s free admission in the evening. It was so crowded, I could barely see anything or enjoy all the artwork and exhibits. I loved going to the museum stores afterwards. My favourite item that I picked up was a book on…

Miss Korea BBQ NYC Ktown

On our recent trip to New York, we ate at Miss Korea BBQ in the heart of Ktown. Sadly, none of the waitresses looked like Miss Korea in there. We ordered cold kimchi noodles, japchae Korean sweet potato noodles, and BBQ short ribs. They grill the meats for you and was very attentive and thoughtful…
