Call to Artists: ‘Apo A No‘eau: A Celebration of Hawaiian Craftsmanship

Receiving Day: Tuesday, May 25 / 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Juror: Denby Freeland

‘Apo A No‘eau (grasp until mastery) is an exhibition honoring the hana no‘eau (arts) of Hawai’i. Artwork should feature or draw inspiration from traditional Hawaiian handmade forms such as lauhala, kapa, wood working, feather work, ‘ohe kapala, or any other aspects of Hawaiian material culture. A celebration of craftsmanship and culture, this exhibition will showcase a combination of invitational and juried works in all media.

The theme of this exhibition is based on a vision born in the dreams of kumu hula Devin Kamealoha Forrest who composed the words: “Nalu a ulu kau, ʻapo a noʻeau” (Meditate until inspiration hits, then grasp the knowledge until mastery). We hope this theme provides inspiration to explore and honor the many handmade forms of Hawai‘i. View prospectus & learn more here.

Rose River Memorial Project

May 15-Sept. 4

The traveling art installation project commemorating the hundreds of thousands of lives lost to COVID-19 is making its way to the Hui Noʻeau. Last year artist Marcos Lutyens had an idea for a tribute to victims of the pandemic in the form of red felt roses. The result was the Rose River Memorial. The art installation will be shown at the Hui with over 500 felt roses made by Maui community members and will be on display from May 15th to September 4th, 2021. Ultimately the roses made for the Hui’s installation will be gathered and mailed to be included in the large exhibit in Washington D.C. in 2022. Learn more about the Rose River Memorial here.
