March 26 – April 20
During the month of April, the Waimea Arts Council presents “Squared Away” – a departure from the usual format in that all pieces on exhibit are in a square format. In addition, this show was opened up to participation from non-members, as well as members of WAC.
Curated by Jaclyn MacKinnon, the show aims not to follow a specific theme in the content of the works submitted, but rather to create a strong visual effect in the gallery as a whole, making the exhibition itself an artistic endeavor. The parameters of the show are simple: square canvases with no size limit or subject constraints. It offered artists a chance to try a new medium, style or subject. Imposing the unusual square format forces the artist to frame his work in an untraditional manner.
The show will be kicked off with an opening reception on Friday, March 28 from 5 to 7 pm at the Firehouse Gallery where pupus, wine and Big Island Brewhaus beer will be served.
In the Back Gallery, take a look at our mini-show about “All Things Green” – come see what our artists came up with when given the challenge to bring in artwork that spoke to the subject “Green”.
