Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao will present the Color+Form show Friday through Jan. 28.
The public is invited to the gallery for the opening reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday, when you may meet the artists.
Watercolorist Ian Tremewen thrives on painting landscapes that range from the rainforests of Hana to the north shore beaches to Upcountry.
Upcountry Farm Patterns by Ian Tremewen will be at Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao until Jan 28.
Honolua Bay oil by Carleton will be on display at Village Galleries in Lahaina through Jan. 23.
"I use the landscape to generate different interpretations," says Tremewen. "I like the idea of deconstructing what I see and then reinventing it in my language. I'm always seeing patterns in the landscape, which gives my artwork an original and contemporary edge."
Diana Lehr puts her emphasis on more traditional landscapes, often influenced by the weather.
"Lately, I am delving more into various elements, including tide pools and active lava fields," Lehr says. "My interest in the interplay between fog and light, water and light, air and water, cloud and earth, etc., are themes in my paintings."
Featured artist Jazz Glickenhaus likes to focus on abstract and realism in his koa sculptures, finding a point in the middle, where these two styles meet.
"I have come to realize that this often allows for a broader interpretation on the part of the viewer," he says.
Glass artist Karuna Santoro is into the medium's fragility and strength, vibrant color and translucency, and its unforgiving, unpredictable nature.
"My love for kiln-formed glass started 13 years ago and reflects my fascination with different properties of the medium," says Santoro.
Gallery director is Oliver Perz. Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Location is 3620 Baldwin Ave., Makawao. For more details, call 572-5979.
Also in Makawao, Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center announces two opportunities for artists to exhibit works.
From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, you may submit artwork for the 2014 Hui No'eau Annual Juried Exhibition. Curated by Oahu-based artist Wendy Kawabata, this prestigious show is open to artists working in all media. It will be on view from Jan. 11 to Feb. 13.
Prospectus and entry forms are available online at www.huinoeau.com/exhibitions.
Entries must be submitted in person (no photos) on receiving day to be eligible for the show.
In addition, now through Jan. 20, the Hui is accepting applications for the 2014 Solo Artist Exhibition.
"This exhibition will challenge both emerging and established artists to exhibit a complete new body of work as a solo artist. As one of the only exhibitions in the state that provides the artist with the opportunity to be personally involved in all aspects of planning and installation, the Solo Artist Exhibition advances careers and continues to define Maui's visual arts movement," says Lana Coryell, the Hui's exhibition coordinator.
For more details, call 572- 6560, ext. 22 or visit firstname.lastname@example.org.
Village Galleries in Lahaina will launch a two-person exhibition of recent works by Michael Clements and Carleton (who goes by one name).
The public may come and enjoy the gala reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and meet the artists. Or you may visit the gallery to see the works until Jan. 23.
"We cordially invite you to celebrate the new year as we open our 2014 season," says gallery Director Anne KenKnight. "Carleton's oils capture Maui's light and seem to glow from within. And, Michael's thoughtful pastels give us a glimpse of our island home from many perspectives.
