Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles and Korean Calligraphy Art Association present the Korean calligraphy exhibition “Hangeul Blooms All Over the World” from Thursday, Nov. 3, with an opening reception at 7 p.m. and will run through Friday, Nov. 25 in the KCCLA gallery.
The word calligraphy comes from the Classical Greek word kaligrafia, meaning the art of beautiful writing and elegant penmanship. In particular, the beautiful meaning of the Korean alphabet, known as Hangeul can be found in Hangeul calligraphy, where a familiar yet completely new level of artistic elegance is conveyed through a balance of spaces.
Since its establishment in 2014, the Korean Calligraphy Art Association has led the way in promoting the excellence and beauty of Hangeul through calligraphy. The exhibition is being held for the first time in Los Angeles and showcases the artwork of 48 artists whose works reveal Hangeul through a variety of materials and techniques of expression.
“I am very pleased to hold the first Hangeul calligraphy exhibition in L.A., which reveals the excellence and science of Hangeul into works of art,” KCCLA director Sangwon Jung said. “You can enjoy the wonderful works created by 48 member artists with their individuality in one place.”
During the reception, attendees can learn more about Korean calligraphy and have their names written in the Korean alphabet. KCCLA is located at 5505 Wilshire Blvd. For information, visit kccla.org.
