I’m sure you’re dealing with your own changes—social distancing, wearing masks in public, and spending a whole lot of time at home, among other things. Hopefully you and your family are staying well, catching up with old friends, and finding some joy through this interesting time.
Bigger changes occurred than I was expecting.
Today my lease for the Hawi gallery is up. After paying full rent for two months while being closed due to COVID-19, and the day after our stay-at-home-orders were extended through May 31st, I was faced with a rent increase and a longer term lease. That just didn’t feel right.
It’s time for a change of venue.
Creating a safe space for you to enjoy and explore art is important to me. Serving our amazing community of artists is important to me. Being open to the public no longer feels appealing—especially since my elderly father lives with us.
The gallery will continue to be available online, with new works and shows continually being added (see below). Plus, you can experience the work in person in my new private office/gallery in Hawi by appointment. We're aiming to have it ready by the end of the month!
To help provide a visual experience that gives you a sense of scale, I’ve created my first virtual art gallery show for our Island Life exhibit.
I am also pleased to announce that financing is now available on my website.
Plus, I've had the pleasure of curating my first real estate listing. Click here for details.
As we pivot to the many changes happening around us, I want you to know how excited I am about these new opportunities. I so appreciate your continued support and look forward to sharing our new location with you when the time is right.
Stay well and keep finding those moments of joy.
