The venerable Honolulu Printmakers, which makes its home at the Honolulu Museum of Art School, has a new executive director—Duncan Dempster—who is slowly introducing exciting new additions to the nonprofit group’s programming.
This weekend he introduces a new publishing project—the limited edition Director’s Portfolio. Dempster has chosen four emerging Honolulu artists to “suggest some possible directions for printmaking.” The selected artists are Drew Broderick, Ualani Davis, Marika Emi, and AJ Feducia. Each artist was chosen for the fresh perspective evident in their work, and their engagement with printmaking as a diverse platform for exploring ideas.
The portfolio contains four 8.5- by 11-inch prints housed in an envelope. And there are just 20 of them! Price: $100.
The portfolios go on sale tomorrow at the group’s annual Impressions Print Sale. Proceeds go to support the Honolulu Printmakers and the four artists. The sale really is a great place for holiday shopping—amazing works at bargain prices. And it’s not just works on paper, they print on all kinds of stuff. I got the coolest oven mitts at Impressions a couple years ago.
