Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao will have a grand opening reception at 6 p.m. Friday for a show entitled Color. Light. Space. The exhibit, which runs through Dec. 5, is the culmination of an ambitious one-year project designed to promote visual literacy.
Eleven Maui artists were selected to participate in a series of documented seminars focusing on each of the three areas (in the title of the show) to encourage new challenges and insights.
Proof of their efforts will be made evident in this exhibition with works executed in various media such as watercolors, oils, quilts, works on wood, pastels, kiln-formed glass and hand-made books.
“Cradle in Gold” by Diana Lehr is part of the “Color. Light. Space.” exhibition at Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao. Video-lecture sessions will take place simultaneously with the show.
In conjunction with the show, a series of educational presentations led by Dick Nelson, the seminar facilitator, will be take place at Viewpoints Gallery in November and at UH-Maui College in January.
The launching of these presentations will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at Viewpoints Gallery on Sunday, Nov. 4 with the opportunity to meet the artists, listen to their impressions and see a sampling of the video-lecture series.
All events are open to artists and the general public.
