Joung Hee (Emily) Won will be the featured artist in the front room at Dagny's Coffee Company, 1600 20th Street, for the month of January. Her reception will be held on First Friday, January 5th from 6 to 8 p.m.

Emily’s show is titled “The relationship between formal elements and special effects”, mixed media art. Meet the artist on Friday, January 5 from 6 to 8 pm.

Emily is an exceptional artist and possesses a Master’s Degree in Fine Art with an emphasis on Western Art from Gachon University in Korea in 1997. Her works have been exhibited in Korea and the United States, and she has also been recognized for her artistic talents in the form of numerous awards.

She prefers to draw spontaneously with different materials without any rough sketches. These endeavors result in drawings with copper wire sculpture. She has been experimenting for a long time with her wire sculpture and recently, her distinguished wire works have been incorporated into artistic photo-graphs.

Emily is interested in the simplicity depicted by lines, especially lines that create human figures and reveal their inner sentiments. The figures and lines are integrated harmoniously into the photographs. As part of the material landscape in photography, the creative lines are revealed by shadows and drawings.
