Furthermore, Agnes’ art had been selected of the TWAC ART SPACE @ THE CNE Juried Art Show from Aug 19th to Sep 5th, 2016, CNE, Toronto. Agnes attended Sheridan College where she graduated with an Honours degree in Visual and Creative Arts as well as a Fine Arts with Honours also from Sheridan College. Agnes also studied "Art and Design Studio Skills " Con-studies OCAD University , Toronto , Canada. Both have enabled her to pursue her passion for the arts. Agnes has received several first place awards for her art work, such as: “Monks of Meditation” in the Painting – Watercolour category in the juried Bruce Grey County show in 2011, “Still Life” in the Drawing Category in the juried Bruce Grey County show in 2010. As well, she was the recipient of the Sheridan Excellency Grad show Award in 2015 and the Sheridan Excellency Bursary Award in 2015. She has displayed her art in several exhibitions such as the Juried Art Show in 2015 at Oakville, Ontario, and “Art in the Park” with the Oakville Art Society both in August of 2013 and 2014. In Bruce Grey County, she took part in the Juried Art Show in 2010 as well as 2011. Agnes’ art work takes full advantage of the colour palette to express her creativity. Some common themes found in several of her works is the “Fairytale realism”, focusing frequently on wonder and the motifs of nature in the subject including the birth of the formative moments of life symbols and abstract images of lines and shapes. Dreaming in harmony with the lines of the changed shape are messages of expression; these images represent moments in life where dreams and reality can coexist. Most recently, Agnes has taken a special interest in contemporary art. She loves the continuous modes characterized by the ideas of pluralism. She agrees that “art is an open field no longer divided by the objective versus non-objective dichotomy. Artists can achieve critical success whether their images are representational or abstract. What has currency is content, exploring the boundaries of the medium, and a refusal to recapitulate the works of the past as an end goal.” In the future she aims to try some new techniques in her artwork, such as different textures, lines, patterns and colours to communicate her ideas and feelings. Agnes truly believes that art is a venue in which one can communicate ones soul and spirit. – Anna Rogers Kim-
