Days later, from Aug. 10 to Aug. 25, Seoul Urban Sketchers will have the 6th exhibition invited by the Topgoal Art Center. The gallery is located in the first floor of the Senior Welfare Center of Seoul(서울노인복지센터) in Jongno district of Seoul. The title of the exhibit will be "My Merry Jongno" symbolizing the location "Jongno" district. In this exhibit 14 sketchers will participate in.
The welfare center runs kinds of classes for the seniors and the users in lunch time amount to 2800 to 3000. I visited there from time to time for sketching having delicious lunch and juice and tea at cafe run by senior female members. For the coming exhibit I sketched more to introduce the activities and the features of the building. Though the center opened on April 2001 the increasing users show how much the programs held for the senior people have been necessary. And the gallery was opened on May 2013. It's very impressive that lots of male senior than female frequent to the building compared to the other welfare centers. Program and location may be some reasons. Sketching these ones many senior members showed interest in sketching and liked sketches.---------------------------------------------
