Merger Upheaval Impetus for "CathARTic!"

ShareThisDuring the first week of May, layoff notices were issued to over 500 employees of Hawai`i's largest newspaper, the Honolulu Advertiser. Since then, the Advertiser has merged with the Honolulu Star Bulletin. Some former employees have been hired by the new Star Advertiser, while others are forging lives elsewhere. HPR's Noe Tanigawa takes you to an art exhibit by former Honolulu Advertiser employees.

"CathARTic!," a show by former Honolulu Advertiser employees, continues at the Louis Pohl Gallery through July 17th. There's jewelry by Beverly Creamer, furniture by Chris Oliver, colorful new work by Paula Rath and the new mu`umu`u note designs by Wayne Harada. This Friday, all the artists, except Harada who is travelling, will gather for a Friday with Friends from 5 to 8 pm at the Louis Pohl Gallery.
