Opening Tonite At The Hui Noeau Visual Arts Center In Makawao:

Exhibition Dates: May 8, 2010 - July 9, 2010

Hui No`eau Visual Arts Center is using a very familiar place as the impetus for this exhibition, that takes a playful swerve away from conventional working methods, encouraging unconventional pieces revolving around a theme well-known to all: the kitchen. This show deals with creating pieces using items from a traditional kitchen both as material and as tools to create works. It will challenge artists to experiment with different materials and techniques. The hope is to instigate artists to break away from their usual conventions of art making and approach the creative process in new and inspiring ways.
