Special category for
BIG ISLAND ARTISTS ONLY:
EHCC will be adopting a satellite gallery at the Maunakea Visitors Center this year. 300,000 people pass through! A special category of up to a dozen works from Hawaii Contemporary Artists will be selected for inclusion in our premiere exhibition, a six month event at the Maunakea Visitors Center entitled "Ka Pāheona Mauna Kea a ko Hawaiʻi nei,” artwork of Maunakea, a local perspective.
Artwork for inclusion in the Visitor Center exhibition should be inspired by Maunakea; related to Wao Akua (the upland area usually reserved for spiritual and ceremonial purposes), Wao La'ala'au (the area utilized by Hawaiians for specialty hunting, gathering of bird feathers, and hardwoods for tools, Kilo Hoku (astronomy), etc. and should include a brief statement by the artist.
HI Contemporary Art show is not offering EHCC members an entry discount this year as we wanted to make the show as affordable as possible for the entire state of Hawai'i while also affording all participants a chance to have their work selected for the satellite gallery at the Maunakea Visitors Center. We plan on making member and non-member entry fees for later exhibitions.
