Triptych special in Firehouse lobby

by Dolores Fox Ciardelli

The large-scale triptych "Imperial Woodpecker" -- 6 feet by 12 feet -- by Korean-American artist Sarah Lee, a resident of Dublin, will be on exhibit at Harrington Gallery Grand Atrium Lobby of the Firehouse Arts Center from Feb. 16 to March 10.

"The paintings were influenced by the Korean War," Lee said. "These species of woodpeckers are extinct from human occupation and invasion." She said she uses animals as symbols of humans to echo the voices of the underrepresented to reveal their shared histories.
