The Genius that was Lily Yung: ahead of her time


January 6 - February 6, 2011
Please join us for the Opening Reception on January 6, 6:00 - 9:00 pm


OCC Gallery, 990 Queen St. W., Toronto
 
Curated by Beth Alber, Anne Barros and David Kaye, The Genius That Was Lily Yung constitutes a retrospective exhibition of Yung's work from her early printmaking days to her explorations in jewellery using Rapid Prototyping (RP) systems.

Born in Hong Kong, Yung received her Ph. D. in Immunology at the University of Alberta where she also studied printmaking. She began making jewellery in non-precious materials in 1986. Since 1994, she used textile techniques in wire and beads to transform them into exquisite jewellery. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally, and has won numerous awards in both printmaking and jewellery. Yung was a founding member of the artist-run fine craft gallery *new* in Toronto, as well as a co-editor of NewViews, a series of notes and reviews on Canadian craft practice.
