The Donkey Mill Art Center (DMAC) proudly welcomes the 10th annual faculty and student exhibition entitled “Technonatura”, with an opening reception March 6 from 6-8 pm and remaining on view through April 30. This exhibition provides an opportunity for members and non-members to view the current studio investigations of our staff, guest artists and selected students; allowing our patrons from the community to experience the creative possibilities that DMAC has to offer.

“Technonatura” focuses on exploring ideas of nature and industry, featuring the intricate works of artists in residence Johanna Mueller and Jason Walker. The artistic intention of this exhibit is to contemplate the intersections of ecology, technology, culture and human intention. This theme, which will be explored and expanded throughout the entire year of 2015 at DMAC, provides a forum for artists, students and community members to gain a deeper understanding of how artists create a personal language in order to interpret and articulate their understanding of the world. This exhibition is made possible in part through the Laila Art Fund and Hawaii Community Foundation.
