During the APEC-WLN meeting (August 23-27), the Hotel Inter-Burgo in Daegu will have exhibitions of works by Korea's female artists. Sponsored by the Women's News, the exhibitions are intended to exhibit the capabilities and vision of Korea's modern fine arts and will feature 40 works by 30 female artists from the Daegu-Gyeongbuk region.
"Korean Image," by Park Nam-hee, digitally materializes the mural images of the ancient kingdom of Goguryo. "Picturesque Landscape" by Park Jeong-eun is a children's tale version of modern urban life. "A Midsummer Night's Dream", by Choi Cheon-soon, is painted in traditional Korean style with light colors. "Munja-Hyang," by Choi Jin-ju, is a modern interpretation of late Joseon Dynasty's popular paintings, depicting a collection of books and stationery items. Ms. Park Nam-Hee, one of the organizers of the exhibition, says that the paintings were selected in such a way as to convey Korea's cultural identity as well as reflect the spirit of the international events of the APEC WLN. She hopes that the exhibition will be an opportunity to showcase Korea's female artists.
