The Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center presents a retrospective by Darrell Orwig, one of Maui's most distinguished artists. For nearly four decades, Orwig has shared his enthusiasm for life in his paintings that speak to the relationships between manmade artifacts and natural places, as well as the nature of photography and its accessible role in our lives. Survey the scope of his work, with paintings and drawings from 1970 to 2010, when "Darrell Orwig:?Waltzing With Time and Place" opens Saturday.
A reception is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, and the show continues during gallery hours through April 22.
The Hui No'eau retrospective series was designed to acknowledge the contributions of individuals who have made a profound influence on local art and to share their work and ideas with the community. Previous participants in the series have included Tadashi Sato (1992), Marian Freeman (1993), Toshiko Takaezu (1993), Masami Teraoka (1995), Shige Yamada (2000) and Richard Nelson (2004).
