Nearly a hundred artworks by 72 Kaua‘i artists will be on display in the annual Kaua‘i Society of Artists’ Membership Show 2007, which opens with a reception on Saturday, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Kukui Grove Exhibition Hall in Lihu‘e. The show will continue through April 20. The opening reception is free to the public, and will feature an awards presentation. The juror for the exhibit was Toni Martin, a professor of art and director of Gallery ‘Iolani at Windward Community College, O‘ahu.
Since receiving entries last Saturday, volunteers with the Kaua‘i Society of Artists have been busily installing the show and preparing for the exhibition opening. The exhibit features 98 artworks selected from 139 entries, and a wide range of artistic styles, approaches, and subject matter are represented.
The exhibition hall is located in Unit B-6 of the Kukui Grove Shopping Center (near Radio Shack), and will be open free to the public daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and until 8 p.m. on Fridays. For more information call John at 821-8022 or visit the KSA Web site at www.kauaisociety-ofartists.org.
