Finding the Forest

Maui Arts and Cultural Center
Schaefer International Gallery
January 27 – March 30, 2013


“The forest is a refuge, resource and inspiration. The Maui Arts and Cultural Center invited accomplished artists and craftsmen from around the state to see how they would perceive and express new ideas on this theme, encouraging investigation of contemporary art-making from conservative to complex. The exhibition outcome will raise public awareness and spark dialog with traditional and non-traditional works in painting, sculpture, furniture, installation, film and poetry.” – Neida Bangerter, Exhibition Curator
