August 1 – 26, 2016
During the month of August the Firehouse Gallery in Waimea will showcase Panoramic Views of Hawaii and other places. Hawaii Island provides a unique opportunity to artists. It has an unsurpassed variety of scenic wonders to photograph or paint and admire. From coral and black sand beaches, to upland pastures of Waimea, to verdant jungles where plunging waterfalls create their own rainbows. All of Hawaii Island’s paradise entices our local artists.
Several local artists are showcasing their panoramic creations. Janice Gail has been in Hawaii since 1986. She paints the incomparable island scenery with its flora and fauna as well as the beauty of our warm and welcoming people. One of her latest paintings is “Almost Home,” an oil painting depicting a cattle roundup.
Barbara Schaefer uses photography to capture Hawaii Island landscapes, sunsets, seascapes and more; Pat Dinsman uses photography or oil paintings to capture island images; and William Bishop has won several awards for his detailed images and sculptures. He dares to be different with his images of African animals. In addition to these artists, there will be many more members of the Waimea Arts Council showcasing their panoramic images.
