Formerly called the "Distinguished Artists of Hawai'i Series," previous participants in this distinguished series have included Tadashi Sato (1992), Marian Freeman (1993), Toshiko Takaezu (1993), Masami Teraoka (1995), Shige Yamada (2000), Richard Nelson (2004) and most recently, Darrell Orwig (2011).
As an educational institution, the hui presents this public exhibition as a way to inspire emerging artists, increase awareness of the artistic history of our community, and share the story of the center's history and contribution to our community.
"This place is a little miracle," said Owen. "Having spent more than a third of my life at the hui teaching, learning and creating, it's such a delight to be invited for a retrospective exhibition. For so many years the hui was my studio--this is my artistic home."
