Thursday, May 17th at 7pm
In conjunction with her fine art exhibition currently on display at Volcano Art Center Gallery, Carol Araki Wyban will present a slideshow and lecture on “Fishponds of Hawai‘i” on Thursday, May 17, 2018 from 7 – 9pm at Volcano Art Center Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village.
The lecture will include images from her exhibition as well as photos of modern activity at Hawaiian fishponds. The mixed media, fine art exhibition at VAC Gallery presents ancient Hawaiian fishponds as cultural treasures and a form of Hawaiian excellence. Pen and ink drawings, original paintings and illustrations by Wyban share a deep understanding of types of different ponds, technology, legends and fish. Carol will share her inspirations for the exhibit and experiences working with Hawaiian fishponds.
This event is free, although a $5 donation to Volcano Art Center is greatly appreciated. For more information on the lecture and exhibit, please call VAC at (808) 967-8222 or visit www.volcanoartcenter.org.
