Exhibition Overview

The Honolulu Printmakers encourages all printmakers in Hawai‘i to submit prints for its juried Annual Exhibition, held at the Honolulu Museum of Art School Feb. 21 to March 15. The exhibition is themed "85" in recognition of the group's 85th anniversary.

Framed prints will be accepted on Feb. 15, 2 to 6pm at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. See submission details.

Exhibition opening reception: Feb 20, 5-7pm

Juror and visiting artist: Hiroki Morinoue
The internationally known Hawai‘i Island artist was born and raised in Kealakekua, where he still lives today. The innovative printmaker applies and introduces new techniques while including techniques from western and Japanese traditions. Over his career Morinoue's work has  evolved from the realistic portrayal of nature to the abstraction and mystery of their interlocking forms.

2013 Gift Print: Margo Ray
Raised in Waimea cowboy country on Hawai‘i Island, Margo Ray collages the personal narrative of an intruder in a secret garden. Gathering artifacts, photographs, and tourist memorabilia, she creates an iconography of orchestrating the countervailing influences of Hawai‘i's polyglot cacophony of cultural voices.
