JUNE 21, 2021 - SEPTEMBER 26,2021

HAWAII'S CONNECTION TO 1960s ROCK ICONS
June 21-July 18, 2021
The 1960s were a time of great conflict, change, and joy. Exploding from the music scene were singular icons, some now past, some still rockin’. Four photographers with Hawaii connections captured some of the best images of the era, many of which are being offered for the first time.
Dealer, curator, and photographer, Michael D. Horikawa presents his ortho litho film prints of rock gods in performance at Hawaii venues.
Hawaii-born graphic designer and digital art innovator, Neal Izumi, presents his black and white images of the end of the sixties at the famous Altamont concert.
Hobbyist David Reed Minoru Hori presents rare color prints from his vast collection of captured moments.
This exhibition is dedicated to photographer and video pioneer Jim Wiseman, whose photos of Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, and more, have been exhibited at galleries and museums around the globe. Framed prints are available in very limited quantities.
THE PUREST LANDSCAPE ON EARTH
July 24 - August 22, 2021
The human form is one of the truest, purest landscapes on earth and Hawaii’s artists have been creating works of art inspired by the body for as long as the islands have been inhabited. This collection of images ranges from the 1960s to the present and covers a wide range of styles and media.
George Woollard offers his watercolors influenced by the great masters of Europe, where he both studied and taught. Kim Taylor Reece’s photographs celebrate women and highlight the beauty of their form in natural outdoor Hawaiian settings. Hank Taufaasau’s stylized oil paintings are bold depictions of Polynesian women that capture the movement and vibrancy of the times they were created. John Wehrheim chronicles the clothing-optional Taylor Camp in intimate black and white photographs. Louise Mendoza’s photographs display gentle eroticism, abstraction, and modernity. Pascha Brown’s original silver gelatin prints are masterful studies of light and form.
