November 6 - December 21 2008

A popular exhibit demonstrating how artists creatively handle the challenge of space and scale dictated by the size of an ordinary shoebox. Featuring dozens of small sculptures by artists from Hawai`i and around the world, organized by the University of Hawai`i Art Gallery. The 9th International Shoebox Sculpture Exhibition is organized by The University of Hawaii Art Gallery and supported in part by a grant from the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.

Artists: Landscape

Joe trudges through cow pastures, old sugar mills, under waterfalls and into volcanoes, painting the many scenic treasures of Maui with great enthusiasm.

Margaret Bedell is now a plein-air painter and directs a life-drawing workshop in Kihei

Diana Dorenzo is a gypsy. Art is her language and her palette is one of powerful atmospherics, a tempest of bold strokes and rich colors revolving around a calm eye of nuance and mood.

Kari McCarthy was already an established—and award-winning—graphic designer when she began to study fine art. In 2003 she was invited to join an artists’ collective, and has since become one of Maui’s preeminent colorists.
