Something different for First Friday…

Hilo Fine Art Center is proud to announce that this month we’re doing something a little different for First Friday. 
We’re doing nothing.
More specifically, we are closing at 6 o’clock to go see Arthur Johnsen’s important exhibit at the EHCC/HMOCA. Arthur is one of Hawai’i’s major talents and is holding a retrospective in the Central Gallery there. It will be a beautiful room.
There is a small bit of controversy surrounding the show. Some will argue that Arthur is not nearly old enough, and certainly not dead enough, for a retrospective – but none will argue that he lacks the chops.

We will also be attending the Big Island Plein Air show at Wailoa Arts & Cultural Center. Forty artists from all around Hawaii Island will be exhibiting recent work. We look forward to viewing at least 600 pounds of landscapes there! (Mahalos to Leslie Sears for the cat herding.)

It’s a great month for Art in Hilo, and a good time to play a little hooky.
See you at the openings!
