The Waimea Arts Council’s Huaka’i show will run from July 1 through Aug. 28 at the Firehouse Gallery in Waimea.
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.
Entries must be taken to the Firehouse Gallery between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. June 25 and 26. The gallery is located at 67-1201 Mamalahoa Highway.
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 $1,200.
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 waimeaartscouncil.org/category/call-for-art/
