“Once again, artists are in the vanguard of public awareness. I believe they were among the first to experiment with recycling on a personal level. (Art supplies can be expensive!) With this in mind, I invite Big Island artists and outsider artists to enter up to 3 pieces for this juried exhibit. I will select works best representing the concept of art from trash. Originality, creativity and craftsmanship count. Large, three dimensional pieces are encouraged”
“25,000 years ago, on the banks of the Danube River in Austria, a woman looked down at her own body and constructed a model reflective of her perspective. This was the Venus of Willendorf. Lumpy, faceless, almost monstrous, she stands in stark contrast to the male-oriented, refined, idealized female form omnipresent in Western art history.”
This exhibition features women artists whom we've asked to share their perspectives through artistic expression. This exhibit is a collective voice of women for women.

FROM THE CREATOR and Chairman, Stephen Freedman
A few generations ago our professions left us with surnames such as Fisher, Carpenter, Barber, Shoemaker, and Potter. Those trade names – now all nearly extinct lines of work, reflect an estrangement from our human nature, and the products of our labor. The joy we once derived from all of those natural activities, the vocations which supported our hunter-gatherer ancestors, have been specialized and sent to factories, or outsourced to other countries.
Join us for the exhibition opening, First Friday November 3rd @ 5:30PM!
