First Friday FEAST Exhibition Opening pARTy & LIVE Concert

June FEAST Exhibition, The Finch Will Flourish Opening pARTy followed by LIVE Dance Concert with Jaramak & Good Foot!!

Born from the community support generated at the May 10th FEAST, Boz Shurr, art educator, muralist and illustrator living and working on Oahu, cultivated the JuneFEAST exhibition, The Finch Will Flourish to focus on transforming public and private spaces into places that feel safe and inviting. This show At Marks Garage is in collaboration with Hawaii FEAST to benefit Child & Family Service, which provides safe spaces for transitioning, women, children and families. 

When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of ebullient times ahead. Finches are singers, storytellers and act as omens of changing tides and bright days on the horizon. Birds can also be a symbol of flight and freedom, a colorful transition when darkness turns to light. Through the process of natural evolution, often caused by factors outside their control, some species must struggle, change and consistently build through unpredictable circumstances to find their safe spaces. As they gather their resources they create their havens; their nests and their futures. The work in these murals represent and celebrate this growth change. When the finch sings, it is a beckoning us to unleash our own song. 

The exhibition runs June 1st-15th and open to the public Tue-Sat 12p-5p. 

Good Foot has put together this special show to bid bon voyage and good luck to their good friend, Kapono Ciotti, the lead drummer and bandleader for Jamarek. This show is also special because it is happening at the Arts at Mark's Garage and it's on a First Friday! To make the night extra special there will be a view 'teaser' sets of Jamarek drummers and Good Foot horns during the open (and free portion) of the evening from 530-9pm.
