Ethereal Experiences for October

Last month I had the please of jurying the Art Kauai exhibition which was a fascinating experience (you can read more about it here). As part of my service I had to give a "lecture" to the Kauai Society of Artists and one of the things I felt called to share was that, 'The job of an artist is to make us feel'. It's something that's easy to lose sight of as an artist working alone in a studio, but that's the gift art gives us when we discover works that resonate for us. It's one of the things I enjoy witnessing every time I'm in the gallery. 

Thinking about how I wanted to make you feel during fall–this time of transition–I thought about slowing down and gazing. Each of the works in our Ethereal Experiences show asks you to do just that. They shimmer and shift in the light – reminding us to slow down and feel (ideally wonder and awe). There are more pieces in the physical show than are available online so I hope you get a chance to stop by to experience it for yourself.

Plus, I'm happy to share an exciting opportunity to support local woodblock printmaker, Andrea Pro, in her project to document and support the endemic Wiliwili tree and the Waikoloa Dryland Forest Initiative. We'll be having a solo show for her project next May.

Wishing you a marvelous fall season!
