After nearly 10 years of service, Honolulu Printmakers Executive Director Duncan Dempster is retiring.

Honolulu Printmakers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a space for local printmakers to create and display their art.

During Dempster’s time as executive director, he helped move the studio out of its longtime home at the Honolulu Museum of Art to Chinatown.

He kept the organization afloat during the pandemic when artists could not use the studio or display their work.

Dempster steps down in late May.

Honolulu Printmakers will hold a virtual meeting in April to vote on a new slate of officers and directors.
