Windward Artists Guild is holding its 57th annual Member’s show at the Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden Gallery October 2 – 28, 2016. Please join us at our reception Saturday, October 8 from 5:00 – 7pm.
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!
All Windward Artists Guild Members are invited to participate in the upcoming 57th Annual Member Show during the month of October at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden Gallery at the end of Luluku Road in Kaneohe. Please download the prospectus below:
Aloha WAG Members! As part of the Coral Reef Symposium, WAG will have an art booth with no commission (hence, the literally priceless opportunity) where you may sell art to the conference-audience (which will be marine biologists and other ocean specialists). We are having a booth either June 22, 24 or possibly both.
2. All art offered MUST be ocean or beach-related subject matter.
3. All art must be able to be packed in a suitcase or able to be taken to the post office or UPS to be mailed to the customer’s address within 48 hours of sale. Prices for shipping need to be able to be estimated on the spot.
4. There is no commission. This is a WAG member perk.
More details will be forthcoming, but you need to email windwardartistsguild (at) gmail.com if you are interested ASAP.
