Hawaiʻi Nei Invitational Exhibition
July 13th – August 25th

 Exhibiting at the VAC gallery in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.

The Volcano Art Center (VAC) is proud to announce the Hawaiʻi Nei Invitational Exhibition.

The multi-media exhibition showcases seven outstanding artists who were selected from the Hawai`i Nei 2023 Art Contest celebrating Hawai`i Island’s native species held at Wailoa Art Center.   The artists including Jane Bonus, Yumi Doi, Makoa Freitas, Ethan Froney, Mark Martel, Rayme Yang-Kaula and Mariana Zopel were invited to explore the basic design element of Lines in their new works of art created specifically for this exhibition.  

As a graphic element lines can be used to define shapes and figures, and also indicate motion, and emotion.  In the visual arts, lines are made when you draw or paint marks on a paper or canvas, or when material such as wood, glass and metal are carved, bent or shaped. Lines are also made by photographers or filmmakers when they choose how to angle their cameras or compose their image.

Visit VAC Gallery to see how the artists creatively incorporated lines in their selected medium to represent Hawaiʻi’s native species or landscape found within Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. The public is invited to meet the participating artists at the opening reception from 2-4pm on Saturday, July 13th.  The exhibition may also be viewed online at www.volcanoartcenter.org
 While the exhibit and reception are free, park entrance fees apply.  The exhibit will also be available for viewing on VAC’s website upon opening. For more information please contact Emily C. Weiss at (808) 967-7565 or email sales@volcanoartcenter.org
