Up close and personal with art

First Photo: Haiku’s Tara Klitchman inspects a piece of glass artwork by Michael Worcester on Tuesday while taking in the Cutting Edge / A Contemporary Glass & Metal Exhibition at the Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center at Kaluanui. Today is the last day to see the juried exhibition before it makes way for the Paniolo Country exhibit, scheduled to open May 24. Klitchman said she dabbles in drawing but is not ready take on molten glass or welding steel. “I’d like to watch it happen,” she said.

Second Photo: Barclay Hill’s copper and sterling silver piece titled “Deadhead” is a playful take on a jack-in-the-box theme.
