Hanji Events February 2014 .......

UPCOMING HANJI EVENTS 

Here are a couple of interesting events  that involve Hanji in one form or another that are going to be on this month. So if you live in the United States or are going to be visiting you may be interested in checking them out.

MAKE YOUR WISH ON HANJI 

 Sunday Feb. 9th, 1 pm at Flushing Town Hall, New York

137-35 Northern Blvd, Flushing New York, 11354, USA


As part of the Asian New Year Celebrations you will have an opportunity to get Korean folk paintings drawn on hanji (Korean traditional mulberry paper). Write your wishes for the new year on hanji and create a one-of-a-kind art piece to take home. Cost:  $10 (materials included) 


This one looks like it'd be good for the children and adults alike.




HANJI: Contemporary Korean Paper Art  

Feb. 6th - April 13th

The Muckenthaler Cultural Center, 1201 West Malvern Avenue, Fullerton, CA 92833, USA

Artists:
Young Hoon Kim
Dong Hyun Chung
Soon Ok Ahn
Jong Kook Lee
Theresa Hwang
Yoonsook B. Ryang

These artists interpret this ancient art form in a variety of unexpected ways for the 21st Century.

Hanji is an ever evolving  art form and if you were interested in new ideas then this exhibition would be  great to see. It's on for quite a long time so would be good to visit if you were in the area.
