It is that time of year again when the Hawaii Forest Industry Association holds its annual Hawaii's Woodshow. There is nothing finer than a display of wood artistry and craftsmanship showing the varieties and rich and warm colors of Hawaii woods combined with their utilitarian functions taken to the level of art.
My apologies to the artists whose pieces did not make the video. I attempted to shoot the show during the opening night reception and found myself competing with a very appreciative audience for a good look at the best pieces. And the video does not do the show justice. These pieces are much better live at the show. Please visit the Honolulu Museum of Art School Gallery at Linekona on Victoria Street.
Kudos to the Hawaii Forest Industry Association for producing this annual event with co-chairs Marian Yasuda and Andy Cole. The show continues to showcase the artistry and craft of the participants and the encouragement to harvest Hawaii wood in a responsible and ecological manner. It is especially exciting to see the new participants right alongside the Career Recognition exhibitors.
Many thanks to Charley Myers for the use of his music on this video.
