Once again Windward Artists Guild has placed a show at Pauahi Tower's gorgeous second floor space which is covered in beautiful travertine stone and topped by soaring coffered ceilings. The spacious venue allows WAG artists to show their large works which offer a valuable interior design option for offices and homes and the chance to collect major works from talented local artists. All works are for sale and 15% of those sales are donated to Windward Artists Guild whose mission since 1960 has been to stimulate the visual arts on Oahu. We will use the proceeds to fund our education grants, workshops, and to help sponsor art events that are beneficial to the community. The Ultra Exhibit is on the second floor (up the escalators or elevators). Show Dates: August 4, 2018 – January 4, 2019 Pauahi Tower is open from 6 am – 6 pm on weekdays, Saturdays 8 am – 2 pm; Closed Sunday Location: 1003 Bishop St, Honolulu, HI 96813 Parking entrance is on the left at approximately 1080 Alakea Street (Bishop Square Parking), or you may park in public parking at Alii Place across the street if you prefer a more affordable option with a small walk.

UPDATE: We have additional display space for small pieces. Feel free to enter works under 24″ too… We can pretty much take anything up to 10′ now that the extra small works space is confirmed. If you have already entered and want to add an additional piece and pay via Paypal, you may send the $5/piece to from your Paypal account using the “Send money” feature, or mail a check for the additional to the same address in the prospectus. This is an opportunity to be juried in to an amazing display space (Pauahi Tower’s gorgeous travertine lobby with soaring ceilings and a beautiful, spacious Koa display case) and to place your work on display for a longer term exhibit with the goal of selling some of our member’s larger pieces. There are no awards, but the proceeds benefit our educational grants. We are looking for original work that is for sale only. The larger the piece is, the more likely it is to be selected for display (up to 10′ in the largest dimension is acceptable). We can take some smaller works, but this will be competitive. 3D work is welcome and has unusually good display cases with glass protection – 3D work 48″ and less recommended. All work must be corporate-friendly (meaning no controversial, religious, political, etc… art). Please visit the exhibit page below to download the prospectus - entries are due 2/24/18.http://windwardartistsguild.org/wag-ultra-show-i/ (which will only be available until the show is hung)
