Shane was chosen as one of two Hawaii artists for the annual Solo Exhibition at the Hui Noʻeau here on Maui. He represented the “emerging artist” category and was honored to join established Oahu artist, Jodi Endicott, who showed her installation, The Market. The show is open from August 15 – September 18; we hope you can see it! Scroll down to view photos from the opening reception.
We encourage you to join the Hui as a member – this nonprofit arts organization puts on outstanding art shows throughout the year, hosts amazing visiting artists, and delivers the best art classes on Maui for children and adults. Learn more about Hui membership here.
Shane created a scale model of the room that houses his exhibit. One of the striking features is a series of windows that let in amazing light. Typically they are covered with a false wall, to make more hanging space available. To preserve the natural light, Shane built a series of portable stands that create extra hang space, take advantage of the light, and draw people into the room that is on the far side of the gallery. His love of being hands-on for the entire process was both tested and rewarded!
Artist Walk Through, Saturday, Aug 30, 1-2 pm
Shane will be in the gallery to discuss the creative process that went into the resulting three distinct bodies of work he included in the show. This is free and open to the public — we hope to see many of you there.
