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.

The show was juried by William Zwick and features a wide array of styles and genres from talented Oahu artists.
After a whirlwind of activity setting up the show, we are pleased to say that there were a lot of amazing pieces entered in the latest Windward Artists Guild Exhibit. The overall caliber of work is very strong this year.
Here are a few photos for a glimpse of the show, but it doesn’t begin to capture every piece, or the beautiful details of each work. Don’t miss the chance to see it in person!
Windward Artists Guild is holding the 56th annual member exhibition coming up in October at the Gallery at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens (45-680 Luluku Road, Kaneohe). Intake for the show is October 3, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. (No late entries – please be on time to prevent disappointment).
We have a new venue and a new show opportunity coming up. Our first 2015 juried Windward Artist Guild exhibition will be displayed at PLACE. A Design Atelier by Philpotts.

This 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.”
