Tim Burton Film Festival and Art Sale

Tim Burton's films don't all take place around Halloween, but they're still creepy enough to get you in the spooky mood. Here's your chance to see Beetlejuice, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Edward Scissorhands and Corpse Bride on the big screen in a (supposedly) haunted theater. Hawaii Theatre, $7–$12.

There will be booths of local artists selling fun and scary things just in time for Halloween! I'll have my own booth so I hope to see you there!

THE 46TH ANNUAL AHA CONTEMPORARY SHOW 2017

THE 46TH ANNUAL AHA CONTEMPORARY SHOW 2017

Exhibit Open to the Public Monday, August 21 through Friday, September 15, 2017
at 1132 Bishop Street, Lobby Level, Honolulu, Hawai’i

 

 

The Association of Honolulu Artists was established in 1926. The Honolulu Art Academy did not exist at that time. With the exception of the Bishop Museum, there was no focal point for the arts. That year a small group of friends eager for cultural exchange gathered to discuss the arts and establish themselves as a membership organization devoted to the support and promotion of the growing arts community. This core group came to be known as “The Association of Honolulu Artists”.

By the 1930’s, the population of Honolulu had grown to a city of over 200,000 residents and the new prestigious Art Academy was visited by almost 50,000 people. AHA was gaining recognition and news coverage on their regularly held art exhibits. Gathering momentum, the periodic art shows that they sponsored grew more frequent and much broader in scope throughout the next few decades. Cash awards for first place winners were replaced with war bonds during the turbulent war years.

Celebrating its 88th Anniversary in 2014, AHA is not only the oldest but also the most diverse art organization in Hawaii. It has had an enormous impact on the public’s enthusiasm and appreciation for the arts. The name was changed from the Association of Honolulu Artists to the Association of Hawaii Artists in order to encompass all islands in the State of Hawaii. After almost eight decades, we are still a vibrant art force in Hawaii. We promote the multimedia arts and its artists members and we build on a foundation where artists of all media can come together for comradeship, education, showmanship, and moral support. We encourage the expression of our diverse cultural heritage and explore themes that reflect the islands’ current issues. We have two jury shows every year along with additional exhibitions that are hosted with the city and the business community. We work to promote art education and growth through AHA’s educational programs, scholarships, workshops and group demonstrations.

Hawaii has a high percentage of the population that characterizes themselves as practicing Artists. Some artist members are professional artists, others practice art as an avocation and serious interest, and some are beginning artists and students. We are accessible. We encourage work in all media and of all interested artists. We enthusiastically invite you to join AHA whether you are an artist or a patron.

Amze’s work has been widely exhibited and evokes a sense of magical/minimal realism informed by architectural illustration, comic books, cartoon language, information graphics, news footage, consumer packaging, and instruction manuals. An Associate Professor at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, Amze is one of the three co-founders and co-editors of printeresting.org, an influential printmaking blog started in 2008.

2017 Gift Print Artist: Sally French Every year since 1933, the Honolulu Printmakers has commissioned a local printmaker to produce an edition of prints that the organization makes available to its members and the public to raise funds for its activities. Kauai-based artist Sally French is known for her dark humor and exploration of diverse materials. Originally from California, French came to Hawaii in the 1970s and set up a studio that she has maintaned for over 30 years. Having worked and taught throughout the U.S. and completed multiple mural commissions, she is currently focusing on the monotype process, as well as on hosting artist residencies at her Double Dog Dare studio.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. School groups are encouraged to visit and may arrange in advance for a guided tour.
