Gam Wine Tunnel: The Art Gallery

The Gam Wine Tunnel was an unexpected adventure my friend Phil and I took. You can find my review of the main attraction, the wine, here.

One of the best parts of the wine tunnel was actually the dark recess past the food and drinks where they have set up a gallery for Korean and Chinese artists. But, first, let me get this out of the way.

Why does a staff member have to tell a 40-50 year old lady to get back behind the rope she climbed over and NOT touch the artwork she very nearly knocked over to pose for a picture? What did she think that rope was there for? Exercise? Has she been out of her house before? Breathe….

Aside from the very poor art gallery manners on display, the artwork was very unique and creative. It was modern and Korean, which I loved. There are works from three artists and it was worth the 2,000 won it cost to get inside. The artwork ran until May 3rd, but I’m sure there is a new exhibition there. Just check the website!

Just to note, the 2,000 won does not get you touching access to the art. I thought I’d say that just in case you don’t know how to walk through a gallery.

We took a train from Dongdaegu Station in Daegu to the Cheongdo Station. From there we took a cab. It’s very popular and its in Konglish so you can tell the cabbie “Wine Tunnel.”
