Hoyeon Art Group Exhibit 2016 Pic

We would like to announce an upcoming group art exhibition that will be held at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College from February 1 to March 12, 2016. The 9th Hoyeon Art Group Exhibition will feature paintings by 15 Korean immigrant members of the Hoyeon Art Association of New York (HAANY). However, this year\'s exhibition takes on new meaning following the death of association founder Joo Sang Kim Lee (professionally known as “Hoyeon”) in December 2015. The works span a variety of themes and styles, from monochrome calligraphy to colorful representations of flora, fauna, figures, and landscapes. The exhibition will also include 30 works by the late Hoyeon in a second-floor exhibition space, accompanied by her portrait and a guestbook where visitors can share their memories of her life and work. Hoyeon began teaching the traditional art of brush-and-ink painting to immigrant Koreans in 1994 to help them reinforce their cultural identity and to help them relieve stress and express themselves through art in their adopted home of Queens.

An opening exhibition will take place on Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.

Exhibition hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Saturday, 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The museum is free and open to the public.
