The MANA Invitational Art Show is now open at the Wailoa Art Center in Hilo! (Directions here.)
This free public exhibition runs through April 29, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (As the center sometimes has to close early, please arrive by 3:00 p.m. to ensure the gallery’s doors are open.)
Photos of the exhibition’s opening celebration are pictured below. Enjoy!
Twenty-six Hawaiʻi artists are sharing their manaʻo (ideas and thoughts) and mana (spiritual life force energy) through their artworks. Three of Catherine’s oil paintings are included. Woodworks by four Kupuna Kane (honored male elders) are also on display at the Center’s Fountain Gallery.
Designers Nelson and Kainoa Makua of Na Makua are the organizers and creative inspiration for the show, with support from the State of Hawaiʻi’s Wailoa Art Center and the Hawaiʻi Island Art Alliance.
E komo mai! Visit the show and take some time to linger among these evocative works.
