Traveling with members of the Oregon chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art, and members of IRIDA from Moscow, Russia, we were graciously hosted by colleagues in Daegu and Gwangju, Korea. Our work was exhibited in three Korean cities and we toured numerous cultural treasures, ancient and contemporary. I will share images in a talk, and have catalogues for perusal. Cultural Sensibilities has been the title of a series of exhibitions in Portland, Daegu and Moscow offering opportunities for cultural exchanges in friendship. Community artists from Korea and Russia are inspiring and share perspectives on our work environments, education and political contexts.
