Island Wide Huaka’i Juried Art Competition

Call to Artists Huaka'i Show.jpeg

Island Wide Huaka’i Juried Art Competition

The Waimea Art Council invites Hawaii Island Artists to Huaka’i Juried Art Competition Entries must be taken to the Firehouse Gallery between the hours of 11 am and 3 pm on June 25 & June 26, 2022. The gallery is located at 67-1201 Mamalahoa Highway, Kamuela. The Huaka’i show will run from July 1 – August 28, 2022 at the Firehouse Gallery in Kamuela. The theme Huaka’i has a depth of meaning far beyond its literal translation of ‘journey.’ In Hawaii, a huaka'i is often a voyage with a purpose, a journey to gain a deeper understanding of oneself, one’s culture, one's ancestors, one's soul. Artists are invited to travel on, with and through their imaginations. The esteemed jurors are Stephen Freedman, a third-generation potter/ sculptor and Philippe F. Nault, a well-known abstract painter and interpreter of Hawaiian culture. The jurors will award cash prizes totaling $1200. The Hawaii State Foundation for Culture and the Arts has been invited to the show to acquire works for the State Collection. The show is open to all Big Island artists 18 and older. Artists may enter a maximum of three pieces. The rules and entry forms are available online at www.WaimeaArtsCouncil.org/category/call-for-art/ The Waimea Arts Council is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the arts, the encouraging artists, and providing a forum for art-related community events.
