Ice Cream Party 2015: Oh Sweet Goodness!
Arts at Marks Garage • on view through March 28

Ceramic magician Daven Hee has organized a fun exhibition at Arts at Marks Garage, featuring many artists associated with the Honolulu Museum of Art. See new work by Kenny Chen, Daniel Harano, Daven Hee, Ashley Huang, Kelsey Hughes (our Art School registrar), Calvin Lac, Emily Lee, Lisa Shiroma (a museum art instructor and volunteer), Lauren Trangmar (in the upcoming Artists of Hawai‘i 2015), Jon Vongvichai (our ceramics program manager) and Shannon Web that examine the phenomenon of Frozen Cow as a delectable interpretation of the desire to possess the temporary.

Through personal musings of memories and process, the artists offer representations of dreams and nonsense that resonate with the child in each of us and challenge us to question our lactose intolerance. The mixed-media collectibles embody idiosyncratic views of living in the present, yet the familiar imagery allows for a connection between melted ironies of cuteness and sprinkles.
