[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
Check out the beautiful desert view from Ma'aleh Adumim where I lived from 1991-1998. I absolutely adore the Judean Hills . Ma'aleh Adumim is a town set just at the beginning of these beautiful hills and landscapes. I lived here from 1991 to 1998 and felt right at home being back in this area. The warm dry sun and the beautiful rolling hills, the layered rock formations, the caves, and the little oasis's such as the one below... my body always actually feels healthier here. If you travel further south you will come to one of my favorite spots in Israel, the Qumran , where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Keep going and you come to the Dead Sea . Here is the view of Jerusalem from the other side of Ma'aleh Adumim. I am embarrassed to admit that in all the years I lived in Ma'aleh Adumim I never managed to visit this beautiful riverbed in the wadi nearby.
