Five years ago, a group of Princeville artists started an event that has become the Fine Arts Exhibit.
North Shore artists will be sharing drawings, paintings and more at the Fine Arts Exhibit with a gala opening from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Princeville Community Center, 4334 Emmalani Dr.
The public is invited to attend the exhibit that is open to North Shore residents, who will show their oil and water color paintings, tile mosaics, sculpture, metalwork and other projects.
The only requirement is that the artist is a local resident and the work they show has not been exhibited.
“It’s just a fun way to exhibit your art on the North Shore. It’s not judged and there are no prizes awarded,” said April McGinnis, administrator for the event. “Some of the pieces range in size and we can fit quite a bit into the room.”
There are usually around 30 to 35 artists and each year, a few more new artists are invited to show their work.
The Princeville Fine Arts Committee decides on the submissions. This year, the committee will accept artwork from exhibitors between 9 to 11 a.m. Friday.
Last year, artist Ruben Wacker submitted a wooden hand-carved model of a “Gentleman’s Racer” motor boat that was popular in the 1930s. He has completed construction of a full-size working replica of the sleek speedster and it will be on exhibit outside of the exhibition.
“He actually built the life-sized boat from the model,” McGinnis said.
This fifth annual event is sponsored by the Princeville at Hanalei Community Association.
