Cove Gallery A Local Showcase

The Koolauloa art community has another place to call home with the recent opening of New Cove Art Gallery at Turtle Bay Resort. Featuring the work of area artists, the rotating exhibits include paintings, drawings and photography that highlight the area’s natural beauty.

Seascape artist Steven Power is host artist and teaches classes from noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, focusing on the fundamental tools and techniques of drawing. Fee is $75 per person. Personalized sessions also can be arranged.

“We are all artists, but we have to become familiar with the tools that are available to us,” said Power.

“This gallery not only gives Turtle Bay guests a unique opportunity to learn more about the works of North Shore artists, but also to explore their own creative talents in one of the most breathtaking and inspiring places in the world.”

Recognized as one of Hawaii’s most popular fantasy seascape artists, Power draws inspiration from his travels, surfing and living in the area. The gallery features his newly released aluminum open-edition signed and embellished prints, lithographs and accessories.

The exhibitors include:

* Daniela Antar Power, whose work on canvas and aluminum features portraits of musicians and other contemporary representations.

* Surf and ocean photographer Vince Cavataio offers open-edition prints on aluminum, and mini prints.

* Sean Davey is a 30-year veteran surf photographer whose work has been featured on more than 140 magazine covers.

* Lynne Boyer is both a open air and studio oil painter who draws on her experience as a world champion surfer, as well as her love of nature.
