Take Old Road New Way

taKe Old Road nEw wAy (a play on the word “Korea”) is the title of Gallery Korea’s Call for Artists 2013 exhibition. The title aptly describes the exhibition, which presents the works of 7 contemporary artists and their personal interpretations of traditional Korean values, materials, and techniques.

The works included in the exhibition vary greatly in terms of medium and style, yet they are embedded with the elegance and sophistication of traditional Korean craftsmanship and aesthetic values. In spite of this return to cultural and artistic traditions, these works are still infused with the artists’ contemporary and personal sensibilities, resulting in work that synthesizes the past and present.

Participating artists include: Seongmin Ahn, Jung S Kim, Kyung Hwa Shon, Shyun Song, Eun Jung Lee, Judy Glasser, and Jeanne Heifetz.
