Friday, July 10th Opening Reception at the Wailoa Center

The Wailoa Center will host three exhibitions organized in conjunction with the 2015 University of Hawaii Summer Art Institute – Hilo program beginning July 1st with a formal opening and reception for Summer Ai visiting artist James L. McElhinney and students on July 10th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. All exhibits will close on July 30th and are free and open to the public, light refreshments will be served.

The Main Gallery will feature "Representational Art in the 21st Century” an international juried presentation of original works on paper that apply new and traditional approaches to media that embody divergent responses to “terrain and the figure, reflecting this moment in time”. The Juror, James Lancel McElhinney is a visual artist, writer, educator and oral historian who trained at Tyler, Skowhegan and Yale and has, at various times in his life, lived and taught in many parts of the Lower Forty-Eight States. His work has been featured in more than forty solo exhibitions from New England to Colorado and from Texas to Ireland. He presently teaches at the historic Art Students league of New York, where he is also Special Consultant for Academic Affairs and Outreach. He has published two books on drawing with Sterling Publishing. His third book is on painting, and due to be published by Ten Speed Press in 2016.

Also on display in the Main Gallery, will be a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Japan Enameling Artist Association. The Japan Enameling Artist Association (JEAA) began as the Japan Enameling Craft Association (1966). JEAA reorganized as the present body in 1977, and was approved as a “public interest incorporated association” by the Japanese government in 2010. The JEAA holds annual exhibitions and hosts international exhibitions in Japan and abroad. The association is also engaged in publishing and holding lectures that endeavor to promote internationally, the art of enameling and artistic exchange. An ancient form of this craft has been practiced in Japan since the late 7th and early 8th century AD. Modern enameling can be traced from the Meiji period and development of sophisticated techniques shared by artists from both Japan and Europe. Also known as “Plique-a-Jour”, the basics of this transparent enameling with silver frame process will be conducted by Mr. Sukemasa Matsumoto, Vice President along with other members of a visiting delegation of Japan Enameling Artist Association members. The enameling workshop will take place on Monday July 13th from 12 noon to 4:30 p.m. on the Hawaii Community College campus. Registration for the no-cost session is required and limited to the first 15 confirmed participants. For additional information contact Professor Michael Marshall at mdmarsha

The Wailoa Fountain Gallery will feature works by SAiH visiting artist Marrin Robinson. Robinson’s selection will feature a series of “plein air” mixed media watercolors. Robinson splits her time between studios in Vermont and Kansas. Her works have been inspired by the deserts of Egypt and monuments of Petra as well as by the Badlands in South Dakota and the rocky shores of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Robinson currently teaches at the Kansas State University, ??? Art Department. Her previous residencies include The American College of Greece, The Colorado College, The Ragdale Foundation and year Fulbright grant support to paint in Portugal. About her work Robinson comments: “My recent work has been inspired by the large skies above the Flint Hills and the tall grass prairie of Kansas. But while my paintings start with the landscape -they are less about a particular geographic location and more about a state of mind.”

Wailoa Center is a Division of State Parks, Department of Land and Natural Resources. It is free and opened to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Center is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and State Holidays. For additional information please call 933-0416 or email wailoa
