Cynthia Schubert holds Kalapawai Solo Show

Cynthia Schubert has a solo show happening October 8 - November 11 at Kalapawai Cafe (750 Kailua Road, Kailua). The cafe serves great food and often features WAG artists.  Spencer Chang was featured in August, and Wendy Roberts and Marti Rounds displayed work in July,  and Sherree McKellar was the first in the new show schedule in June, kicking off a new format of monthly art displays by talented local artists that is managed on a volunteer basis by Sherree McKellar.  Many thanks to her for finding and scheduling the talented artists who show at Kalapawai! You can expect a steady stream of excellent shows under her guidance.

WAG in MidWeek

The awards given by WAG were covered in the Midweek paper. Here is the link to the newspaper article again for those who want to see all the photos and read more: http://midweek.com/pdf/Windward/2017/0308/ Please view page 4 to begin reading the article. It looks like the screenshot below... [caption id="attachment_532" align="aligncenter" width="248"] WAG in Midweek[/caption] 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!

57th Annual Member Show is on display

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!
