Critic's Choice

Mini-reviews of current exhibits by Advertiser art critic Virginia Wageman

Linda Hosek (Art Gallery, Hawai'i Pacific University, through Jan. 25). A reporter with KHNL-TV in Honolulu, Hosek is interested in storytelling — the focus of her journalism both on television and earlier as a reporter for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and other newspapers. Her photographs also tell stories or capture a moment in a story. Hosek is concerned with recording people's private moments in public settings. With superb attention to composition, she manages to frame her subjects in ways that bring a feeling of majesty to scenes that might otherwise seem mundane.
