World Famous artist, printmaker, artist’s book creator Chang-Soo Kim with his wife Jihyun Shim during two months travel in Europe decided again to visit Lithuania.
In 2009 Prof. Chang-Soo Kim from South Korea, Prof. Wayne Andrew Crothers from Australia and Prof. Joseph Johannes Visser from The Netherlands has made the “International Artist’s Book Workshop Vilnius 2009” for international students in Vilnius Academy of Arts. The project was in frames of “Vilnius – European Capital of Culture 2009”.
So this time we decided to show for our friends a little Lithuania. We have made about 900 km journey with the car by small roads, visiting old monasteries, the Cross Hill and few small villages with old traditional churches.
In the evening we went to Palanga, small town on the sea. Here we stay for a night in the hotel of Artists Association.
In the next day we visited Karkle and some natural parks around – it was strong wind and big storm, so it was big waves of the sea, nice colours and an impressive mood.
In the Park of Plaze Lake lives big colony of the great cormorant. The lake is near the sea. During the Soviet time Russian soldiers were washing military tanks in this lake…
We returned back to Vilnius in later night by the road near river Nemunas with few stops in Hillfort of Seredžius and old town of Kaunas. I would say in was a little pilgrim journey… But the nature and traditional sacral architecture in Lithuania is really impressive.
