A CHANGING SITE: LOOK FOR NEW INSTRUCTIONS FOR FRAMING AND SUBMISSION
The site is going to change as the show approaches – slowly changing from education to preparation and finally presentation to the public. We are officially now in the art preparation phase where artists are well under way on their pieces with a deadline of April 5 for submission. To help you, we just released guides for framing and submission. Framing takes a while, especially if you opt to order online, so we have those instructions ready for you now so you can place orders in advance of the exhibit. These instructions are time-sensitive, so in place of perfection, we have opted to release them and issue revisions. Please take a look now so you have an idea of what to expect but check back for a more complete version at the end of March for submission – we are hitting some snags with online payment that we will iron out.
Accordingly, to prevent the menu from becoming a nightmare, the links on the menu are being moved to help simplify the interface. Now some of the pages we created to help you with education and creation days have moved to the “Archive” – you can still see them, but they are neatly stored under a nice drop-down menu heading. If anything is there, it is still good information, but it is no longer top priority.
MAHALO TO ART CREATION DAY PARTICIPANTS
Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the art creation days and to learn the history of the wahi pana locations. Special thanks to the extra effort of our island neighbors who have added the inter-island participation to this exhibit and events. This has been very exciting and makes the islands feel more unified.
SEE THE PREPARATIONS UNFOLD ON SOCIAL MEDIA
I would encourage you to pay attention to Instagram and Facebook. There have been many wonderful Facebook and Instagram posts. Search for the #wahipana and #associationofhawaiiartists tags (click on them inside Instagram or type them into the search bar, or look at the Facebook page for Association of Hawaii Artists to see many – but not all – of the posts). I am still playing catch up with posts – I have more than 20 more to go from the March 8 – 10 weekend! Posting these photos has been a lovely experience – to review them each and see the pieces unfolding from so many artists with different styles is a dream come true. There is so much energy in these works of art!
