[NEWS PORTAL STARTODAY] I had the pleasure of attending the CAMPUS ART FAIR 2019 held at Hongik University on the second floor of the Main building. The fair is the result of the hard work by the organizers; Asia Art Net Committee, Campus Art Fair Committee and the Keumsan Gallery, together with the support of their sponsors and partners.
Many colleges and universities were represented. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the creative art work of the students. There were beautiful visuals in both black and white and in color. Some pieces offered social and political messages and statements. Others used real life daily objects that were transformed into unique art forms. The art forms included painting, printmaking, oriental painting, sculpture and photography.
There is much to be proud of in Korea’s art students. This exhibition proudly represented the enormous talent of Korea’s future artists.
Represented universities and galleries included: Hongik, Keumsan, Kyonggi, Sookmyung, Sungshin and EWHA Women’s Universities, University of Seoul, Seoul National University, Chugye University for the Arts, AllMeArtSpace, Galerie Gaia, Gallery Godo, LeeSeoul Gallery, Yoon Gallery and Korea Print Photography Promotion Association in Seoul.
At this time this review has not been published. I hope it will be at some point. However, I feel that this wonderful artist and her story is worth sharing. Free My Soul, Free My Song – The Story of Fingerstyle Guitarist Kim Ji Hee Review by Kim MiSo aka Rahel Limor I first met Ms. Kim Ji Hee in the summer of 2018. I was a traveler touring in Seoul. I had just enjoyed a concert featuring some very talented Korean finger-style guitarists and was lingering around as the audience dispersed when a woman approached me. She and her daughter had been sitting behind me during the performance. The woman introduced herself and then turned to her daughter. “This is my daughter, Kim Ji Hee. She is a finger-style guitarist too”, she said. The young girl gave a shy smile. We talked a bit asking the usual questions one asks when just meeting. I, too, am a guitarist from America traveling and touring here in South Korea. We exchanged business cards and snapped a few pictures together. Perha
