55th Annual Members Exhibition

HoomaluhiaGardensThis year’s exhibition is currently being held from October 4 – October 24, 2014 at the Gallery at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens (located in Kaneohe at the end of Luluku Road).  The gallery is open from 9 – 4 daily and visitors can not only see the show, but wander through the phenomenal gardens which are the inspiration for some of the paintings in the show. There is no cost for entry into the gardens or gallery.  The curator for the show is Antoinette (Toni) Martin who worked hard to select the pieces for the show which consists of 64 works from 41 artists.

“My congratulations to to all Windward Artists Guild artists in this 55th Annual Membership Exhibition. The quality of the entire exhibit is outstanding.  As a curator, I find that selecting awards to recognize only a few artists is very difficult among examples of such high quality craftsmanship.  However, exhibitions and their audience look forward to selective acknowledgement of individual works. Therefore, I designated Award of Merit exemplifying examples of an artist’s integrity toward subject and materials, resulting in a personal voice.”
