Tiffany’s Art Agency presents printmaker Andrea Pro

Tiffany’s Art Agency presents printmaker Andrea Pro for a collector’s reception from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday at the gallery in Hawi.

Hawaii’s native environment is a key inspiration for Pro. Last year, her work caught the attention of the owners of Big Island Bees in Captain Cook, and she was commissioned to create three new images that you’ll soon find available on various items in their museum/gift shop.

Her latest work features the beloved honey bee collecting nectar from the three specific flowers Big Island Bees creates its amazing varietals of honey from — ohia lehua blossoms, macadamia nut flower and wilelaiki blossoms on the Christmasberry tree.

The event is free.
