Merrie Monarch is happening again in less than a couple of weeks. Hilo's biggest event. It's also the world's premiere hula competition and it happens right here. So finally the gallery got it and decided to hold a hula art show and opening. Duh, we're so brilliant sometimes... The opening was well attended because we also got it together to send out emails to let people know (finally all those years of filling out our guest book paying off for the guests--they heard from us). Here is my painting for the show. We also had actual hula dancers perform. Ehulani Stefany's dancers and even Ehulani herself doing the some modern hula (called ‘auana). A fun-filled evening at the Arthur Johnsen gallery. Go to the gallery blog to see photos from the opening (and Arthur's paintings).
