Yun Gee Park Gallery & Atelier is a Tucson gallery and gardens complex that exhibits international contemporary fine arts, wearable sculpture, and high craft. The gallery is noted for its collection of established and upcoming artists who are exploring unconventional materials and forms; its distinctive manners of display and installation; and its focus on curation of all aspects of one’s life including environment, body, and action. The gallery and gardens are located in the heart of Tucson and the property features four distinct gardens combining Korean and Sonoran aesthetics with multiple pavilions, a gazebo, aviary, grotto, and several water features, as well as an outdoor sculpture garden/courtyard.
Regularly rotated exhibitions of contemporary two and three-dimensional contemporary art are shown in the main gallery adjacent to a collection of art jewelry by many of the world’s top artists of wearable sculpture, and some of the finest contemporary Korean and Japanese ceramics and metalwork in Arizona. The atelier also creates stunning and unique pieces of personal adornment on-site featuring pearls, colored gems, and precious metals.
The gallery is treated as a 3-dimensional design “magazine,” the purpose of which is to scintillate the senses, in diametrical opposition to the overly pervasive digital-based experiences that tend to dominate our current age. The collection on offer at the gallery is eclectic and contemporary, while exhibiting a curatorial cohesion that is bold, provocative, and unconventional, yet elegantly executed with strong links to artistic tradition and traditional techniques.
Guests to the gallery are always warmly welcomed with tea and refreshments artfully presented in exquisite vessels and place settings.
A visit to Yun Gee Park Gallery & Atelier is always a feast for all five of the senses.
