‘Apo A No‘eau: A Celebration of Hawaiian Craftsmanship

‘Apo A No‘eau (grasp until mastery) is an exhibition honoring the hana no‘eau (arts) of Hawai’i. Artwork features and draws inspiration from traditional Hawaiian handmade forms such as lauhala, kapa, wood working, feather work, ‘ohe kapala, and other aspects of Hawaiian material culture. A celebration of craftsmanship and culture, this exhibition showcases a combination of invitational and juried works in all media. The theme of this exhibition is based on a vision born in the dreams of kumu hula Devin Kamealoha Forrest who composed the words: “Nalu a ulu kau, ʻapo a noʻeau” (Meditate until inspiration hits, then grasp the knowledge until mastery). Artists were invited to use this theme as inspiration to explore and honor the many handmade forms of Hawai‘i.
