Samimi and Dempster to exhibit next week
From 5-7 p.m. June 13, Kahilu Exhibits will host an opening reception and walkthrough for two solo exhibitions with artists Kamran Samimi and Duncan Dempster. Both exhibits, UNEARTHED and smallclusters, will run from June 13 to Aug. 18 at the Kahilu Theatre.
In UNEARTHED, Samimi will be exhibiting a combination of sculpture, photography and printmaking in the Simperman Gallery of Kahilu Theatre. Growing up in Laupahoehoe, Samimi creates works of art that are both a tribute and a response to the rich landscapes found throughout Hawaii.
Duncan Dempster is a Honolulu-based artist and teacher working primarily in print media. For smallclusters, Dempster says this work is “an attempt to balance literal perception with psychological responses to the landscape.”
His work will be on display in the Hamakua Gallery of Kahliu Theatre.
