The Shape of My Heart: Han Mee Artist Association Group Exhibition
Chaney Gallery, 2nd Floor

HMAA was founded in 1972 in the Greater Washington Metro area as an organization for artists with Korean heritage to exhibit their unique work and encourage each other as artists as they pursued their passion for art. The Shape of My Heart is an exhibition celebrating what we reveal about ourselves to the world.

Our lives reveal something about our being. The musician reveals the beautiful melody of the universe. Poets reveal various forms of life. Flowers make their own beauty. Heaven is the broadness of heaven and earth. The mountain reveals itself high. What does our life reveal? Do I reveal the morality and character of human-being? Do you reveal love, warmth, goodness, sunshine, and hope? I am not showing any stubbornness, arrogance, sadness, greed.
