Art Day

I took a few hours off from correcting papers to support the arts (in a small way) and purchase holiday presents. We started out at the student art sale in the Art building at UH Manoa. They had some great pottery by Daven Hee, and many affordable pottery works, glass pieces, and lithographs. We also got some funky art jewelry and textiles upstairs. The show still runs on Sunday from something like 10 to 5. Daven told us that he is helping to start up a gallery that will open by the 11th at 438-A Uliniu Street in Kailua. He is one of my favorite ceramicists.

We also made it for the first time to the Honolulu Printmakers Annual Benefit Print Sale, and spent about $200 there. This show continues until the 4th at the Linekona Academy Art Center.

While at the Honolulu Academy of Art, we truly enjoyed some of the bizen and tamba ware in the "YAKIMONO: 4000 YEARS OF JAPANESE CERAMICS" exhibit. Some of the works dated back to the Jomon Period, although our favorites were from the Muromachi era. There was also an interesting exhibit of modern Korean ceramics. We also enjoyed lunch at the Pavilion Café, which is always a treat.

Earlier in the day, Noriko and I also met Brandon Hayashi to discuss her talk and booksigning next summer at the JCCH. The rest of the day has been devoted to reading student papers. Some are actually quite good.
