Ceramics Display at the Buena Park Library District

Ceramics created by local artist Yoojin Kim are now on display at the Buena Park Library District. Over a dozen of her fantastic creations are on display in the lobby now through the end of December 2005. The Buena Park Library District is located at 7150 La Palma Avenue in Buena Park, between Knott and Western Avenues.

Ms. Kim studied ceramics at California State University Sonoma and had a studio for several years. This is her first public exhibition. Ms. Kim stated that we live in a fast-paced world and we often don’t think about what we are doing. "It is important to stop and think. Art serves as a vehicle to do that." Ms. Kim stated that when she was younger, she felt she had no direction. "Art gave me a way to express my feelings." She hopes that other young people might be drawn to art as a means to find direction and expression in their lives.

Many of her pieces are humorous, but upon further reflection and study, an underlying pain is perceived. One piece, "Confussion I", was the result of a blind date set up by her mother. The artist thought her date was unattractive, yet had to deal with the pain and confusion of his rejection.

Stop by the Buena Park Library District and take some time to examine the works of thoughtful and sensitive artist. The Buena Park Library is open Mondays through Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. For information, please call the Reference Desk at 714-826-4100, ext. 125.
