WAG board members Don Johnson, Suzanne Barnes, MaryAnne Long, Roger Tinius, and Wendy Roberts spent a couple of hours selecting awards, which was certainly a tough task – there were many talented artists in the display. The representatives from the board chose 12 young artists to award $50 each in order to encourage their development as artists.
Don Johnson gave out a special award to an incredible fashion piece in his wife’s honor, and he and MaryAnne Long matched WAG funds to assure we could grant more awards for encouraging our next generation of artists. Thank you Don and MaryAnne for the generosity extended to our next generation of artists!
Watch the newspaper for an upcoming article about our awards for the recent student show at Hawaii State Art Museum. WAG board members Don Johnson, Suzanne Barnes, MaryAnne Long, Roger Tinius, and Wendy Roberts spent a couple of hours selecting awards, which was certainly a tough task – there were many talented artists in the display. The representatives from the board chose 12 young artists to award $50 each in order to encourage their development as artists. The show was wonderful and had many different media types. Our award choices included paintings, graphite drawings, ink drawings, multimedia, a ceramics piece, a watercolor, an etching, a photograph, and a video produced by 5 students that made everyone a little teary-eyed. It was all pretty amazing! Photos may be able to be posted later, but may spoil the surprise if posted online right now.

Below is a preview/overview of the show. The works are beautiful especially in person, and each piece is carefully placed in order to harmonize with the art next to it. Cynthia Schubert (who organized the exhibit and directed the placement of art on the wall), MaryAnne Long (who assisted the entire day), and the members who helped hang the art did a wonderful job. Thank you to all our excellent volunteers and to the members who are displaying their talents. WAG hopes our visitors enjoy the show!
