The Isaacs Art Center at Hawaii Preparatory Academy welcomes the Hawaii Wood Guild’s 2020 Masters Invitational Show. The free exhibition opens with a community and artist reception from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, and will run through Feb. 28.

The Isaacs Art Center has hosted the Hawaii Wood Guild’s annual Masters Invitational Show since 2009. This year’s exhibition will feature furniture, sculptures and wood art by noted island artisans — including Kelly Dunn, Scott Hare, Tai Lake, John Mydock, Michael Patrick Smith, and John Strohbehn — that reflects innovative materials and techniques. During the show, guild members will be available from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every Saturday to share their work and stories. All items in the show are available for purchase.

“We are looking forward to another stellar Hawaii Wood Guild show,” said Mollie Hustace, director of the Isaacs Art Center. “We are excited to have 22 noted artists participating with more than 54 exquisite works on display, and we invite everyone to enjoy these unique works of art.”

The Isaacs Art Center at Hawaii Preparatory Academy features some of the finest Hawaiian and Asian art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Proceeds benefit the HPA Scholarship Fund, which assists young people from Hawaii in realizing their educational goals.
