SHOW AT HO’OMALUHIA
HO’OMALUHIA BOTANICAL GARDEN GALLERY
(45-680 Luluku Rd, Kaneohe, HI 96744)
August 1 – 29, 2017
Featuring my work, and the art of Cris Meier and Jaime Mendame. I have a lot of new work on display at the gallery that isn’t going to be online until after the show.
How to make the most of your experience:
- The gallery is located in one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in Hawaii. It is more of an arboretum than a garden for the majority, but there is a sizeable manicured garden area next to the visitor center and then countless beautiful areas with a combination of flowering trees and bushes, some of which are very rare. Make sure to leave a couple of hours to explore the gardens. I especially recommend Hilonani Lookout, and the beautiful lake. With the large acres of land, there are many beautiful spots in the garden and you can find a quiet spot even on the busiest weekends.
- Second, there is another smaller gallery near the main gallery where I am displaying my work. In the small gallery, there is a show of Susan Roger-Arregger’s work. She recently passed away too young from a tragic and sudden spinal cancer. She was an amazing person, artist, and teacher and her work is beautiful and unique. Once an artist passes away it is always harder to see a cohesive show of their works as the art makes its way into disparate collections and scatters across the globe. This is your chance to see a comprehensive collection of her art before it hides away in the treasure troves of private collectors.
- Watch for Jaime painting on site. He sometimes stops in and paints at the gallery and he is really fun to watch! I am not sure how often or when he will be there so just look to see if you see a man with an easel painting something beautiful on site.
Enjoy the show!
