Korean-born painter Haeley Kyong's lifetime passion for color and form has created a series of abstract paintings where simple paint and gesture reveal experience and emotion. In 2002, Kyong earned her BFA with high honors in painting at the Mason Gross School of the Arts of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Since then, Kyong has exhibited extensively in galleries and cultural centers throughout the United States, including Turchin Center for the Visual Arts of Appalachian State University in Bonne, North Carolina; the Newark Arts Alliance in Newark, Delaware; the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware; the Woman Made Gallery in Chicago; the Rosenthal Gallery of Fayetteville State University in Fayetteville, North Carolina; Dishman Art Museum of Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas; the Runners Gallery of Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, New Mexico; and the Walsh Library Gallery of Seton Hall University in West Orange, New Jersey As a female painter, Haeley Kyong had the honor of giving lectures in 2004 on Artemisia Gentileschi at the Institute of Italian Culture in Montreal and at the Embassy of Italy in Ottawa, Canada. Ms. Kyong’s work will be in an upcoming two-person exhibition in May 2006 at the Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City, Maryland.
