Gallery Walk-through with Jodi Endicott: Thursday, September 18 / 5:00 pm

Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center accepts applications annually for artists to exhibit a complete new body of work. The Solo Artist Exhibition is one of the only exhibitions in the state of Hawai‘i that provides the unique opportunity for artists to be personally involved in all facets of exhibition planning and installation. It challenges artists to envision and produce an innovative and cohesive body of work to be shown in a professional gallery setting. The Huiʻs historical gallery is divided to accommodate two simultaneous exhibitions, cultivating an energetic conversation between both artists and spaces. This exhibition has advanced careers, spurred community dialogue, and continues to define our local visual arts movement.

This year, the Hui invites two exceptional individuals to tell their stories; Jodi Endicott (Oahu) will present “The Market,” which explores the stock market as a metaphor for the ups and downs of the human experience and the search for balance. Shane Robinson (Maui) will present “Iterations,” which uses the universal language of mathematics as a familiar foundation from which the viewer can connect with pieces of a more conceptual and minimal nature.

About our Jurors:

Glass:
Stephen Fellerman grew up in New York and attended Pratt Institute where he took a ceramics class and experienced working with his hands for the first time. Upon graduation, Fellerman headed west to Sausalito, CA to discover one of the most creative art centers in the country- a small glass studio (one of the few at the time). He watched others and absorbed a variety of techniques, then experimented during his allotted time. After a year in California, he returned east to Kent, Connecticut to open his own studio, becoming one of the first studio glass artists to make a living from glassblowing. Responding to a style resurgence, Fellerman specialized in Art Nouveau inspired pieces, and his reputation grew. By the early 1980s, with increasingly more artisans blowing glass, he began to branch out into more personal and original work. He had a passion for the process, and spent years refining its expression to “push the envelope” of his medium. Fellerman says he hopes to blow glass until his last breath. His works are part of the Corning Museum of Glass permanent collection, Corning N.Y.; The Chrysler Museum permanent collection, Norfolk, VA.; and the White House Collection, Washington D.C.; Queen Beatrice of the Netherlands, private collection.; and “North American Glass” Gilford Handicraft center, Gilford Connecticut; Hartford Square North.

Michael Mortara was introduced to glass as a student in high school and has worked in that medium for over 30 years. He began his collaboration in glass with his wife Misato Mochizuki while they were both studying glass in Hawaii. In 1998, they began building a studio on the slopes of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii and in 2000 they moved to Volcano and began producing their glass full time, producing both limited edition as well as one of a kind works. Known for the distinctive use of multiple color overlays on simple clean lined forms, the influence of the natural environment defines their style. Mortara’s work can be found in galleries through out the United States. In addition to private collections world wide, his work has been included in the Collections of Hawaii State Foundation of Culture and the Arts, Contemporary Museum of Honolulu, Hilton Hotels, the Four Seasons Resorts and the National Parks Service.

Christine Turnbull was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Growing up, she found herself captivated by the dynamic art scene and immersed herself in the creative arts. In 1994, Turnbull moved to Maui to start her career as a sculptor. Living alongside Steve and Bruce Turnbull, she began working in wood, stone, and clay. She then apprenticed artist Anna Good. During this time, Turnbull poured over every resource she could get her hands on from books, videos, seminars, intensive anatomy courses, and basic trial and error, to learn the intricacies of sculpting. With her keen eye for design and details, Turnbull’s talent in clay came about quickly and naturally. Today, her life-size bronze sculptures are displayed throughout the United States. Her work is part of the Witte Museum’s permanent collection in San Antonio, Texas. In 2014, her commissioned piece of King Kamehameha will be on permanent display in front of King Kamehameha Elementary School in Lahaina, Maui. She has acted as juror for the 37th Annual Na Mele O Song and Art Competition, taught private sculpting classes, and opened and curated her two galleries, Turnbull Fine Art and Turnbull Studios. She lives with her husband, Steve Turnbull, and their three children in Kahakaloa, Maui. Please visit her website for more information: www.turnbullstudios.org.

Metal:
Linda Yamamoto took several courses at Oregon State University and eventually graduated with a BFA and then an MFA from the University of Hawaii. She has taught sculpture courses at the University of Hawaii for the past 24 years and this experience has shaped her artistic vision. Yamamoto enjoys working in a series and an assemblage manner. She works primarily in cast and fabricated metals. Yamamoto has a library of molds that she has made from various “bric-a-brac, flotsam and jetsam and what have ya’s” that she has collected over the years. Many of her works are kinetic and interactive. She is very much interested in myth and symbols and the thought that she is part of a timeless conversation with artists past, present and future. She is constantly amazed by the way things change—and yet at the same time, stay the same.

Infinite Blue — A Community Art Making Challenge

October 6 – November 10, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, October 5th / 5-7pm / FREE
Juror: Rich Richardson, Executive Director of HAPA: Hawaii Academy of Performing Arts, Chinatown Artists Lofts & The Arts at Marks Garage

Artists were invited to creatively interpret “blue”, a primary color holding historical significance in art, culture, and politics. From religious figures like Mary and Shiva to Picasso’s Blue Period to Delta blues music, this hue invokes coolness and electricity, melancholy and serenity, and appears in shades such as cobalt, ultramarine, and those found in our islands’ water and sky. “Infinite Blue” will demonstrate our community’s sense of humor, mastery of skills, and diversity of expression and media.

Juror’s Statement:

It is such an honor to be invited back to the great art, atmosphere, and family of friends at the Hui! “Blue” is such a luxurious point of departure for creating art…I love somber art, and funny art. I like art that mixes mediums or cultural references. Uniqueness, simplicity and surprise are key. Focus and skill are good too. Above all, enjoy the process!

About the Juror:
Rich has a Masters degree in Creative Arts Interdisciplinary Studies from San Francisco State University, and has been a working artist in Hawaii for 18 years. He does curating, public relations, exhibit & performance programming. He was owner of pioneer Chinatown art gallery salon5, an adjunct Professor of Art at Hawaii Pacific University, and helped to establish First Friday Honolulu. Between 1994 and 1997 he was Exhibits Coordinator at Hui No’eau and recently received the Rotary Club Kalama Award with a proclamation from the Mayor of Honolulu for “Excellence in the Perpetuation of the Arts & Culture.”

2012 Hui No‘eau Annual Juried Exhibition

January 7 – February 19, 2012
Juror
: Allyn Bromley
This prestigious competition offers an opportunity to view current work of local & mainland artists in all media, including ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photography, jewelry, digital imagery, fiber, painting, and wood. Nationally renowned guest jurors include respected curators and artists from Maui, Hawai‘i and beyond, offering a different perspective for a unique show every year. Join the Hui in celebrating art and artists!

Juror’s Statement:

I am delighted to be offered the experience of jurying for Hui No‘eau. The work that I have seen there is of high quality and serious intent, and it is my pleasure to work with the Hui to select another exhibition of their best.

As an artist trained in an era of formalism, the fundamentals of art making are important to me. I respond to the elements and principles of structure, the varieties of expression, and the technical skills of the artist. More than that, however, are the unquantifiable components of a work, the sincerity with which the artist works, the ideas and selection of materials to express those ideas, and the obsession or passion of a work — those things interest me as well. Being a sole juror is a responsibility I take seriously. I look forward to my part in helping make this exhibition as successful as your past exhibitions have been.

About the Juror:
Allyn has lived and worked in Honolulu since the early 1950s. She earned a BFA from the University of Hawai‘i, and her MFA from the University of Colorado. She has done post-graduate work at Pratt Graphic Center in Manhattan, and at Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Washington. Allyn retired from teaching printmaking at the University of Hawai‘i in 2000 to pursue further explorations in the art of the print. Her current interests are in deconstructing the screenprinted format to recombine and reconstruct images in the third dimension.

Visualizing Green

August 27 – November 12, 2011
Juror
: Stephen Freedman

This themed exhibition welcomes artists to investigate and creatively interpret the many ways in which “green” appears in our world. Whether inspired by nature, the environmental movement, the emotions this color provokes, or any other inspiration, artists are encouraged to develop and express an authentic vision of what “green” means to them. Visualizing Green exhibits works that delve deep into creativity, engage the viewer in a thoughtful way, offer new insight, and demonstrate the profound importance and diversity of this omnipresent hue.

About the Juror: Stephen Freedman’s career has spanned four decades, creating and exhibiting sculpture for galleries, public commissions and solo museum exhibitions in the United States, Australia and Asia. He migrated to Hawaii in 1992 where he has been the proprietor of idspace, an alternative gallery, and co-creator of HI Art Magazine, an online arts publication, for the past decade. He has curated numerous exhibitions, published several books and written extensively on the arts for various publications.

Juror’s Statement: “At its best, art precedes thought. Pre-conscious elements assembled in prescient models anticipate scientific and social transformation. I look for art which is expressive of a point of view, and well-crafted, exhibiting innovation and relevance. I will seek that which strikes me as both engaged and personal.”

Exhibition Kitchen: The Art Show

Jurors: Tom Klobe & Marilyn Vierra // Bev Gannon
May 8 – July 9, 2010
The Hui used a very familiar place as the impetus for this exhibition, taking a playful swerve away from conventional working methods and encouraging unconventional pieces revolving around a theme well-known to all: the kitchen. This show dealt with creating pieces using items from a traditional kitchen both as material and as tools to create works. It challenged artists to experiment with different materials and techniques. The hope was to instigate artists to break away from their usual conventions of art making and approach the creative process in new and inspiring ways.
