You are invited to come enjoy refreshments and see the Windward Artist’s Guild Summer Show at the State Library at our reception on Thursday, July 7, 2016. If you are unable to come that evening, the show will be up during the month of July on the main floor in the relaxing reading room of the beautiful State Library on 478 King Street in Honolulu. If you are driving, there is metered parking around the entire area, and underground municipal parking a short walk from the library, with entrances on Alapai or Punchbowl between Beretania and King Streets. It’s the same parking you would use for Honolulu Hale. Or there is also paid (meter) parking at Iolani Palace, but Honolulu Hale tends to be less crowded.
The show features 16 artists and approximately 40 works in various media from watercolor and oil paint to fine jewelry and blown glass.
There is less than one week left to see the Convergence Show at Gallery on the Pali. The Gallery on the Pali will be open between 10 and 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week. We will take it down this upcoming Friday morning, January 8, 2016. Leo Hura documented through the lens of his camera – very nice of him to share! Thanks Leo! Please note that the names of my fellow artists should read: Dawn Yoshimura, Suzanne Barnes, and Cynthia Schubert. Three extremely talented artists! It’s been such an honor to work with them!
A sincere thank you to all those of you who attended Oahu Open Studios. This was a wonderful year despite not being at my home studio.
I was with five other talented artists at Sherree McKellar’s amazing beach house: Sherree, Mark Brown, Marti Rounds, Suzanne Barnes, and Frank Oliva were a joy to spend time with during the weekend. It was a busy show, but we had time during set up and breakdown to chat and enjoy each other’s company. I posted quite a lot about this at my Facebook page. Please feel free to scroll through the many photos there.
Thank you to everyone who attended the first annual Oahu Open Studios event held at my studio. It was a pleasure to meet art enthusiasts, colleagues, and neighbors. It was also a true pleasure to present my work alongside the lovely and talented Suzanne Barnes. We had a steady stream of visitors, including our charming neighborhood peacock!

I was pleasantly surprised and honored to receive third place in the Fall Windward Artists Guild Show at Hoomaluhia. My painting, Maunawili, a 20X24 oil painting was awarded the prize. I was truly touched to receive the recognition, especially considering the level of talent present in the show! I would like to thank everyone who attended the reception yesterday, and all the members of WAG that helped put the show together. It was a lovely evening!
The show will continue to be displayed at the Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden’s gallery (near the Visitor’s Center) until October 26, 2013. Plan some extra time to wander the inspiring gardens while you’re there. It’s absolutely breathtaking! The incredible array of plants are planted along miles of trails on acres of land in several zones, organized by their region of origin. There is a large pond filled with vibrant orange fish and various water birds. Picnic tables are situated throughout the park that are perfect for eating breakfast or lunch (the park is open 9am – 4pm daily – you will need to bring your own food if you want to have a picnic). All this beauty is nestled at the foot of the Koolau Mountain chain, which offers impressive views of the sheer mountain cliffs, and some amazing perches on high ground with a commanding view from the mountain to the ocean, and from Kualoa/Chinaman’s Hat all the way to Olomana.
Currently I have two pieces, Maunawili, and Lotuses & Lilies in the Fall 2013 Windward Artist’s Guild show at the gallery at Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens (at the end of Luluku Road in Kaneohe). The gallery is located near the visitor’s center. The show is up and will run until October 26th, I am planning to attend the opening reception for the show on Sunday, October 13 from 4 – 6 pm. Hope to see you there!
