HPU, Garden Showcasing Art

Two Windward art galleries have exhibits open now, offering area residents displays of printing and painting.

Satoshi Takahira’s “My Process: Looking & Printing” is on view at Hawaii Pacific University’s Kaneohe campus gallery until July 13. According to Takahira, all the activity is gone in a single moment after transferring the image to the paper. This is why he takes a special approach to printmaking based on an old Japanese proverb, “A moment is in everything, and everything is in a moment.”

His method of print-making is very technical and experimental, and he devotes a lot of energy to his passion.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday, with admission and parking free. For more information, call 544-0228.

Aloha Ho’omaluhia XXVIII is open through May 27 at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden. The mixed media show has been a yearly event since 1984 when a group of artists responded to the construction of H-3 with the intent of sustaining the equilibrium of the garden.

Participants this time are David Behlke, Calvin Collins, Lynn Cook, Jodi Endicott, Ka-Ning Fong, Ailed E. Garcia-Saavedra, Chris Gargiulo, Linda Hutchinson, Carl Jennings, Diana Jeon, Katherine Love, Toni Martin, Neghin Modavi, Elizabeth Nakoa, Diane Nushida-Tokuno, Carol Sakihara, Joseph Stanton, Russell Sunabe, Sharon Sussman, Liz Train and Debbie Young.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. For more information, call XXVIII curator Sarah Bremser at 734-9377 or visit alohahoomaluhia.com.

An additional show is in the park’s lecture room, with works on view by Beatrice Hunt’s students at Windward School for Adults.
