2016 - Social Change through Art
Date: January 1 - December 31, 2016
(Normal Business Days)
This year The Donkey Mill Art Center will be investigating Social Change Through Art by way of educational programs, exhibits and events for adults and children. Through the language of art, we hope to create cross-cultural dialog that focuses on inclusion and confronts the alienating assumptions which reinforce a sense of separation between ourselves and others.
We are currently developing projects for the coming year with emphasis on community collaboration.
Creative dialog, experiential learning, exhibits, lectures and artist-talks will focus on themes which call attention to current issues and challenge long held beliefs. We challenge our local artists and art educators to demonstrate the use of art as language that can lead to shifts in perception, awareness and action, through their own work as well as in their work within the community. We welcome project proposals and idea sharing. Contact Anne for more info. email@example.com
WOOD INK FIBER Exhibit
Date: May 6 - July 9, 2016
(Normal Business Days)
Opening Reception: Friday, May 6 from 6pm - 8pm
The Donkey Mill Art Center is proud to announce our Inaugural Biennial Exhibition, WOOD INK FIBER 2016, a juried exhibition open to all artists working in the media of woodblock printing in the state of Hawai’I and open to the public for viewing in our current galleries in Holualoa, Hawai’i, May 6-July 9, 2016.
The woodcut print is as old to these islands as the patterns that decorate pre-contact kapa cloth, and as new as patterns carved into plywood with a dremel tool. The use of wood, paper and pigment, informed by numerous traditions continues to be a vital artistic form. The primary activity of this exhibition will be to explore these various forms as they are currently practiced in the State of Hawai'i.
