Art & Design
Coral Sea, from a previous show.
Today's art exhibit recommendation is the juried Honolulu Printmakers Annual Show at the Honolulu Art Academy. It is currently on view in the gallery right opposite the main entrance and shows a brilliant cross-cut of different printing techniques, subjects and textures from Hawaiian artists - and it is free!
Some of my favorites were a beautifully textured print in copper and dark blue called "Indigo" in the middle of the room, an enormous black print woodcut reaching from the floor to the ceiling, and a smaller print of a skeletol human hand called "tactile". But so many of the realistic or abstract prints are absolutely stunning, and it doesn't surprise me that while I was there today one lucky couple chose to purchase and take one of the art works with them to California as a momento. The museum employee took a photo of them smiling happily in front of the newly aquired print, I hope it brings them joy and happy memories for many years to come.
If you haven't visited the exhibit yet but are determined to go better hurry, the show is scheduled to end by this week-end on the 16th of March 2012!
