I went to Centro Cultural de American Latina Y Museo (중남미 문화원) located at Goyang City. The place was very beautiful with brick buildings such as museum, art museum, religion building, sculpture park, and so on. Shiny weather added the pleasure to walk here and there seeing the great sculptures in nice garden. Of course I could see lots of cultural sculpture works inside the museum. And there was a souvenir shop too. There were various kinds of decorative goods such as ring, bracelet, necklace, wallets which are of characteristic design of Latin America. There was a special exhibition of the clothes and textiles of the traditional wearings. The museum was originated by the former ambassador Lee Bok-hyeong who had served as diplomat in Latin american countries for 30 years. He and his wife collected lots of precious works to establish a museum. It's said that such kind of museum about Latin America is the only one in Asia. Hope you to visit there some day.
I added three sketches drawn on today, 15 May 2015, with Kim Mikyung at the museum.
The quiet atmosphere with well trimmed garden trees was good enough to heal ourselves. The museum locates not far from Seoul. By subway or bus one may be able to go there within one hour more or less according to the distance. We enjoyed the serene mood as if the garden were ours. This time I captured two at the inside of the gallery where the Latin countries' traditional clothes were exhibited. We admired the efforts of the owner seeing all those exhibited works.
오늘 고양시에 있는 중남미 문화원에 다녀왔습니다. 날씨도 좋아서 나무, 잔디, 꽃등이 야외 조각품들과 어우러져서 아름다왔어요. 물론 실내의 전시품도 잘 보았구요. 다양한 복장 전시도 뜻밖의 소득이었습니다. 일절 실내 사진 촬영이 금지되어있고 1994년 박물관 건립 이후 많은 소개가 되어 있어서 달리 사진을 찍지않았어요. 조용한 위치에 있는 작은 종교 전시관의 안과 밖이 감상하기 좋았습니다. 가끔 가서 그림도 그리고 휴식도 취하면 좋겠습니다.
********** 오늘(5월 15일) 김미경샘과 함께 그린 스케치들을 함께 올렸습니다. 여전히 조용하고 아름다운 분위기의 문화원에서 실내 풍경을 그리느라고 애를 먹었어요. 백에 넣은 물이 쏟아지고...서서 그리다가 급기야 바닥에 앉아 마감을 했구요. 가끔 들러서 많은 조각품들도 그려보면 좋겠습니다. 먼데 오셔서 함께 그림 그려서 즐거웠어요! 맛난 김밥, 약밥도 감사했구요! ^ ^ ***************************
