Lordy, this is some weather we’re having. Kinda makes you want to hide away in air conditioned bliss until it blows through, doesn’t it. Well, luckily for those of us that live in Daegu, Beomeo Art Street is the perfect for just that. The underground gallery spaces are directly connected to the entrance of the Beomeo subway stop on the Green Line.
What's even more awesome about wandering this long hall of art?Close to exit 8, you'll find Project B Gallery in Studio 3. Their current show - 2013 Water color - Colorful Daegu - exhibits work from five [b]racket artists. Brandon Inman and Craig Mason were both featured in the November 2012 issue, and Kim Nam Jin and Ryu Eun Ji were both featured in the January 2013 issue. The fifth artist is none other than [b]racket's very own Editor in Chief Jess Hinshaw.
The gallery hours are Tuesday - Sunday, 11am-7pm. But, if you can't make it during those times, never fear. The exhibit is laid out in an awesomely accessible way. Inman, Mason, and Pak's pieces are on the walls of the art street opposite Project B Gallery. The show itself is full of color and lightness, a visual fresh breeze during this stifling heat. With a good balance of whimsical and contemplative art, there is something for every kind of art viewer.
If you can read Korean, there is a Beomeo Art Street website. If not, have a mini-adventure. Take the subway to Beomeo and see some art.
