During the show, guild members will be available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday to share their work and stories. All items in the show are available for purchase.
“We are looking forward to another stellar Hawaii Wood Guild show,” said Mollie Hustace, director of the Isaacs Art Center. “We are excited to have 22 noted artists participating with more than 54 exquisite works on display, and we invite everyone to enjoy these unique works of art.”
The Isaacs Art Center at HPA features some of the finest Hawaiian and Asian art from the 19th and 20th centuries. Proceeds benefit the HPA Scholarship Fund, which assists young people from Hawai‘i in realizing their educational goals.
