"Soul of Artists: Inaugural International Online Exhibition"
Lihue, Kaua'i

An artist asked me how do I find these venues and I said I really don’t know. Besides invitations, calls for entries just pop up and capture my interest. I don’t know why things happen but I do pay attention.

I was born and raised in Honolulu. I came to the mainland for college in Boulder and ended up living in the SF Bay Area when I was 19. I became a printmaker after undergraduate years at California College of the Arts (formerly California College of Arts and Crafts). I started showing in galleries and museums in my early 20’s. One of the places where I showed was the Honolulu Academy of Art as a contemporary printmaker being part of the USA 1976 Bicentennial traveling exhibition. Was nice to be home. That was the last time my art was shown in Hawaii… until now.

Soul of Artists is a juried international virtual exhibition based in Lihue, Kauai. As far as I know, I am 1 of 17 finalists in their inaugural exhibition. Both “Mooring 19” and “Mooring 29” will represent me online; however, both are “Not For Sale” as they were previously purchased at other venues. Prints are available.

The Soul of Artists is a 2023 organization that helps expose artists and creates support to artists via grants and online exposure. Being selected opens up the Pacific Asian culture/countries to my art that I would never have imagined as my art is mainly shown on the mainland and parts of Western Europe.

The Soul of Artists is a mission driven organization which provides a forum for “amplifying exceptional living artists both known and not-yet-well-known.” They provide both financial support through private donations and amplification by internet exposure.

The Soul of Artists team is highly educated in the arts, with an extensive background in visual arts, art history, literature, film and theater.

According to their website, they honor the full range of human expression, are very open-minded and there is no subject or theme that is excluded from consideration.

This exhibition runs online from April 15, 2024 through March 4, 2025.

"Finding the Familiar"
Marinwood Community Center
San Rafael, Ca.

“Mooring 16” has been invited to the Annual Marinwood Spring Exhibition: “Finding the Familiar” happening on April 27 from 3pm - 7pm at the Marinwood Community Center. This is a one day event with over 40 2D/3D artists juried by Suzanne Long a Bay Area ceramist, teacher and curator. A percentage of the sales will support the Marinwood Community Center.

In the 1950s and 1960s, suburbia came to Marinwood. It was brought partly on the shoulders of modernist builder/developer Joseph Eichler. His highly recognizable and stylish homes can be found throughout Lucas Valley and Eastern Marinwood. The Lucas Valley community center and pool were also constructed by Eichler as a centerpiece of the neighborhood.

Marinwood Community Center is located at 775 Miller Creek Rd, San Rafael, CA 94903
