Ponder the treasures that Hawaii’s forests produce
Hawaii’s forests will receive some welcome attention during an upcoming display of amazing works of art created entirely of wood.
Previous works have included everything from ornamental pieces to musical instruments and furniture. The heirloom-quality works are crafted from Hawaii-grown woods, including kamani, koa, macadamia and mango.
Entries will be judged by a panel of three experts: Craig Mason, a well-known woodturner from Oahu; Craig Nutt, a furniture and sculpture artist from Nashville; and Tiffany Shafto, curator of Tiffany’s Art Agency on Hawaii Island.
The exhibit continues through Oct. 11. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free.
The art school is at 1111 Victoria St. in Honolulu, three miles from Waikiki.
Guests will also be able to learn about the responsible forest management initiatives stewarded by the Hawaii Forest Industry Assn., which sponsors the show.
