MARY KIM / GGOT BYEOL: LOVE OF TWO STARS

Abstract painting by Mary Kim
August 26 – September 20, 2019 / Commons Gallery
This exhibition by painter Mary Kim explores the relationship between elements of nature and the complexity of human emotions. It draws its inspiration from The Cowherd and the Weaver Girl (牛郎織女), a Chinese folktale dating back more than 2600 years. The forlorn lovers of this bittersweet story are only permitted to meet once a year. Their tears of joy when they meet, and those of sadness when they part, are the source of rain in the human world.

ATTRIBUTE : EDWARDS + PORTNER + SOLIVEN

Christopher Edwards artwork detail
September 1 – October 18, 2019 / The Art Gallery
One of the most common questions asked of artists is what inspires our work. To address this head on I have invited three Hawai‘i-based artists to create new projects that combine their own artworks with the actual sources of their inspiration.
