The Volcano Art Center announces the return of the Tiny Treasures Invitational Exhibition to its gallery in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park from Sept. 21-Nov. 3.
The multi-media group exhibition will be open to the public from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, with an opening reception slated for 5-7 p.m. Sept. 21. While the exhibit is free, park entrance fees apply.
This year’s exhibition will also celebrate VAC’s 45th anniversary. The art center was officially incorporated on Oct. 21, 1974.
Invited jewelry artists including Daniel Rokovitz, Stone O’Daughery, Kristin Mitsu Shiga, Pat Pearlman and Amy Flanders will present their unique, hand-crafted designs, some embellished with sapphires, to help celebrate this milestone event. Their works will be highlighted against wood designs of Karen and Mark Stebbins of Big Island Engraving.
Also on display are small works from the annual Volcano Art Collaboration, which took place in June at VAC’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. That event was attended by nine participating artists including Rose Adare, Nash Adams-Pruitt, Lisa Louise Adams, Ed Clapp, Amy Flanders, Bill Hamilton, Liz Miller, Joe Laceby and Erik Wold.
In the spirit of the collaborations event, the artists created multiple unique mixed media pieces incorporating wood, glass, metals and ceramics. Visit this unique collection of small works of art and help VAC celebrate its many years of providing art and culture to the community.
