Temple for the Wandering Souls
Paintings and installation on silk 

by Phan Nguyen   

EHCC Central Gallery, September 6-27

Opening reception for all 3 galleries - September 6, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Phan was born in a Catholic village north of Hanoi, and went south with her family at the time of the partition of 1954.  She came to the United States in 1969 and eventually settled in Kona, Hawai'i.  On returning home after recent visit from Vietnam, Phan developed a series of works about her unresolved feeling for her motherland and how people's lives had changed as a result of the war.  This exhibition started out with the idea that a unique constellation of qualities characterize each of our souls.  Phan set out to explore her own soul print.  Her chosen medium: silk and simply carved Koa branches.  As important as her medium was her method: intuition, insight, fragments of memories, recalled dreams, and the resurrection of shadowy impressions from her childhood Vietnamese village all guided by her along the nebulous trail to her soul.

 


Reflections

by John J. Mydock

"The true nature of our creative mind is like a mirror of intimate reflections," says Mydock.  This exhibit includes ongoing Spirit Shield Series of mandalas, fine woodworked framed mirrors, and Mydock's unique style of airbrushed automotive paint on these and a custom motorcycle built by Ellsworth Fontes.

ROBIN MILLER

MONOTYPES - ONE OF ONE

July 5 - 26, 2002

Central Gallery

 

Narrative, eclectic, challenging and often humorous, these monotype prints draw on a variety of contemporary sources for inspiration.  Here, the object of making the print is a running commentary on society, morals, mythology, politics, history and biology.  With affection and tongue in cheek, even life in Hawai'i, with all its joys and oddities, is examined.  Miller shows a retrospective of 10 years of printmaking, along with recent work.  At the opening reception the public is invited to make a monotype and experience firsthand this intriguing painterly printmaking method, in which each print is an original, not part of an edition, truly One of One.

 


MARIE FONTANA

July 5 - 26, 2002

Mauka Gallery

 

Her artwork reflects her frugality: Humble and often recycled materials and homemade paint are combined to express social concerns, especially the threatened environment.  Fontana uses surface treatments such as crackle and rust, which hint at decay, in an effort to nudge the viewer, to provoke an emotional response (she spent the last few years exploring ways to make the cracks wider and deeper.)  Her work has been recognized with many awards locally and overseas.  Marie Fontana's solar-powered home and studio on 11 acres in Kapoho provide a setting in which not only to create, but also to practice what she preaches.

July 5 - 26, 2002

14TH ANNUAL YOUNG AT ART EXHIBITION

MARCH 2-29, 2002

This is a very special annual exhibit that many in our community look forward to.  The anticipation of viewing the best creative student art from our island schools is well-rewarded every year.  Through the labors of 69 teachers from 32 public, charter, private, and home schools, 750 creative efforts of their students (K-12th grade) were submitted from as far away as Kona, Kohala, Na'alehu and Kau.  A heartfelt thanks goes out to these teachers.  Without their dedication, overtime unpaid work, transportation costs, and often out-of-pocket expense for supplies, this exhibition would not showcase the artistic excellence of our Big Island youth.

The most difficult job in the eyes of many is that of jurying this huge show.  This year three well known Big Island artists, Elfie Wilkins-Nacht, Monika Mann, and Chiu Leong, had the privilege and difficulty of selecting the works to be displayed and awarded.   A total of 194 individual works were selected to be part of this exceptional show.

In a special opening on March 2nd, the Hilo High School Jazz Band under the direction of Armando Mendoza opens the Awards Ceremony with the music starting at 9:40 a.m.  The Awards Ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and the public is invited to view the colorful, exciting, spontaneous creations of our youth.  Following the Awards Ceremony there will be Dancing in the Park.  The Big Island Dance Council will showcase youth performances as well as ethnic dancers.
