Bryant Lake LaGrange Sponsors Contemporary Korean Ceramics Exhibit on Display at the LaGrange Museum of Art

PEC Development Group’s Bryant Lake LaGrange community is a proud sponsor of the From the Fire: Contemporary Korean Ceramics exhibit now on display at the LaGrange Museum of Art. From the Fire is the largest collection of contemporary Korean ceramics to come to North America and marks the first time a Korean curator has selected contemporary ceramics from Korea to exhibit in the United States. The exhibit opened at the LaGrange Museum of Art on May 10, 2008 and ended July 5, 2008.

“From the Fire is truly an inspiring, one-of-a-kind collection and it has been amazing to host such a wonderful exhibit,” said Judy Wilson, Director of the LaGrange Museum of Art.

“Without the support of sponsors like Bryant Lake LaGrange, hosting an exhibit of this magnitude would have been nearly impossible. I am truly appreciative of the support that PEC Development Group and Bryant Lake LaGrange has given to the museum.”

The 108 contemporary Korean ceramics date from the early 1990s to 2003 and feature 54 Korean ceramic artists ranging in age from 30 to 80 years old. Pieces incorporate traditional techniques with new influences that reveal the adventurous spirit of Korea’s ceramic tradition. The exhibition takes the viewer on a journey through the past to the present and is presented in three categories: Tradition Transformed, Ceramic Sculpture, and Individual Directions.

“Bryant Lake LaGrange is very proud to be a sponsor of From the Fire,” said Paul Corley, Chief Executive Officer of PEC Development. “The collection is beautiful and brings a great piece of culture to the community. We are excited that we have the opportunity to sponsor such an amazing exhibit and we look forward to working with the LaGrange Museum of Art in the future.”

The LaGrange Art Museum is located at 112 Lafayette Parkway. Exhibit hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Reservations can be made for group tours by calling 706-882-3267. Admission to the From the Fire: Contemporary Korean Ceramics exhibit is free.
