The Windward Wanderers have wandered into the Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden gallery and set up an art show.

The annual exhibition, “Wandering with the Arts,” is open now through Feb. 27 in the park visitor center, featuring the group’s best “en plein air” creations. The Wanderers meet each Wednesday morning at a different scenic locale in Windward Oahu to enjoy it together and paint on site. They also bring their own lunch and review each other’s work.

The show offers the best efforts of 15 members in a multimedia display. Several are active in the Hawaii Watercolor Society, while others specialize in pastels, gouache, acrylic and oils. Still more create wooden turned bowls and ceramic pieces.

All artworks on display will be for sale.

The park is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. For more information, call 254-2757, or call the park at 233-7323.
