LIHUE — Patrons of the Lihue Public Library will have an opportunity to view prints from Slovak photographer Filip Kulisev, starting tonight when the library hosts an opening reception from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
“These prints were recently exhibited at the Hawaii Convention Center on Oahu during the World Conservation Congress of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature,” said Karen Gally of the Lihue Library. “The exhibit is being brought here in collaboration with Hui O Laka, Kokee Museum.”
Among the exhibit are several pieces featuring Kauai as well as pieces featuring Africa, Antarctica, the Arctic, Asia, Australia, Europe and all of the Americas.
“He comes here quite often,” Gally said of Kulisev. “He is friends with one of our residents and when he is here, they go out to look for things to photograph.”
Kulisev told the organizers that he has found interesting themes and scenery in Hawaii.
“I’m glad to present my work to the highest forum of the conservation experts in the world,” he said. “Through my work, I do my best to show people the beauty, which we could lose by our inaction to preserve and conserve our precious planet.”
The exhibit is open during normal library hours, Mondays through Fridays.
