Origami all the way
Creston eighth-grader May Ling Chuong has her origami art featured in Creston: Arts gallery
Tiny, vibrant paper cranes seem to float in midair as they hang from thin pieces of string in the restored Creston Depot's art gallery. May Ling Chuong, 14, is September's Creston: Arts featured artist with her origami art.
"It's crazy. I was scared," said Chuong. "I'm, like, 14. And, I didn't actually think about doing something big with it. I just thought it was a hobby. So, when it became something big, it was really nice."
Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper. The goal is to turn a flat piece of paper into a sculpture without the use of glue or cuts in the paper.
Chuong, a second-generation Chinese-American, is the daughter of Jen and Simon Chuong, owners of Chuong Garden in Creston. She has two younger sisters and one younger brother.
