KSA Small Works Show to kick off

The Kauai Society of Artists will accept submissions on Saturday for this year’s annual Small Works Show, which will run from Nov. 22 to Jan. 3.

“This show is good for people who are new to art or maybe don’t feel as comfortable to enter a show, but we have many professionals who enter work, too,” KSA Show Chair Katy Zeidner said. “I have a soft spot for small works, because that’s where I started painting … years ago. I think just the opportunity to show a little bit of your work gives a well-rounded presentation of what you and other artists can do.”

The show is open to Kauai residents, who are KSA members and over 18 years old. Non KSA members can become a member on Saturday, when they submit their work, Zeidner said.

Artists are allowed to submit up to five pieces in any medium in the exhibition for an entry fee of $8 per work.

Each submission must be no larger than 16 inches in any direction and made within the last three years. Previous works submitted in past shows or exhibits are not eligible for submission.  

“It’s not a juried show, so most pieces — unless there’s some basic problem with it like it doesn’t fit our parameters — will be exhibited,” Zeidner said.

Judges Banana Patch Studios owner Joanna Carolan, Angela Headley of Angela Headley Fine Art in Hanapepe and Ray Nitta of Westside Woodworks in Kekaha will present small awards prior to the show’s opening night on Friday, Nov. 22.

KSA Secretary R. Eve Solomon said last year’s show featured 165 small works by 40 individual Kauai artists.

Solomon said they are hoping to attract at least 50 to 65 artists this year.

Entries will be accepted from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
