Dagny’s BAA Art Gallery 1600 20th Street.

How beautiful my Father’s world is! Mi Okh, who came from Korea, is an amateur painter. When she was young, she had a vague dream of becoming a painter. She held on to her dream, and she is achieving it through years of private lessons, art classes at BC and the BAA. Mi Okh loves nature. She is impressed by the plants as they change with the seasons, colors in nature blending harmoniously, and the dynamic lines that plants have. Flowers and trees have become the main subjects of her paintings. She enjoys acrylic painting, and her art works are on display at the Bakersfield Art Center every month.

Mi Okh is thankful to have a chance to display her works at Dagny’s in April, and the main theme of this exhibition is flowers. April is coming soon, and she invites you to come and enjoy the beautifully painted flowers, which mimic the natural masterpiece of God’s creation. Mi Okh is pleased to share her love of the natural world with you through her art work.
