Photos from AHA 90th Anniversary Show

AHA 90th Anniversary Show Awards

This summer has been happening so fast!  I will play catch up and post a few photos from the Association of Hawaii Artists 90th Anniversary Show at the Honolulu Country Club.  It was quite an elegant night, marking AHA’s longevity in style.   AHA is suspected to be the oldest art organization west of the Mississippi, as stated in the Awards Ceremony, but I haven’t verified it personally with research.  If not the oldest, it is certainly a contender.

We also came together as artists to celebrate the life of Candace Fenander who recently passed from cancer. A segment of the night was spent recalling happy memories of her amazing talent and vibrant life. She was definitely a good role model for a life well-lived!

The evening included wonderful friends, live harp music, and a beautiful cake.

I was awarded Best in Show for my painting “/*Internet Series*/ function Distract (User)”. As part of my prize, I was given an original watercolor of a European scene painted by Candace Fenander!  What an amazing and generous gift!
