33rd Annual KASC Exhibition


33rd Annual KASC Exhibition

As we open the 33rd regular annual exhibition of the Korean Artists Society of Canada, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to the senior members who have been with the association for the past 40 years and have worked hard to make the current association what it is today. This annual exhibition is themed on Memory, and we have prepared a retrospective of two artists who laid the foundation while serving as presidents of the association in its early days, as well as the works of 55 artists. Just as today’s society is rapidly aging, cutting-edge science and technology are also developing differently than yesterday. In our lives which are connected to the internet and smartphones, individual autonomy and pure emotions seem to be gradually fading away. While appreciating this Memory exhibition, we hope that it will be a time to draw our own unique images that have been forgotten, and to send love and gratitude to those who have protected us and helped us grow.

캐나다 한인미술가 협회의 33회 정기 연례전을 열며 지난 40여 년간을 협회와 함께 해 오셨고 지금의 미협이 있기까지 힘써 주신 시니어 회원님들께 깊은 감사를 드립니다. 이 번 연례전은 메모리를 주제로, 미협 초기에 회장직을 맡으시며 초석을 다진 두 작가님의 회고전과 55분 작가님들의 작품으로 준비했습니다. 빠르게 노화중인 오늘날의 사회 만큼이나 첨단 과학 기술도 어제가 다르게 발전하고 있습니다. 인터넷과 스마트폰으로 이어가는 생활속에서 점차 개인의 자율성과 순수한 감성은 멀어져만 가는 것 같습니다. 이 번 기억전을 감상하며 잊혔던 자신의 고유한 모습을 다시 한번 그려 보고, 우리를 소중하게 지켜주고 성장시켜준 분들에게 사랑과 감사를 보내는 시간이 됐으면 합니다.
