Livingston Galleries celebrates: Livingston Galleries is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Fred Livingston and gallery director Beth Wotkyns have managed to keep the gallery alive, and continue to show the artwork of 80 well-known Hawai'i-based artists. The gallery is at the Crouching Lion Inn, 51-666 Kamehameha Highway in Ka'a'awa. Call 237-7165.
Winning student artist: Also celebrating is Micah Kaulula'au, a sophomore from McKinley High School who won "Best in Show" at the Art Competition for the First Congressional District sponsored by Kamehameha Schools. Kaulula'au and his teacher, Rene Kitagawa, will travel to Washington, D.C., to attend the National Arts Reception in June. His artwork, a luscious pastel portrait entitled "Aunt Antoinette Pomaikai'i," will be displayed in the hallway of the Capitol for one year alongside other student works from across the nation.
Noted artist in town: The Honolulu Printmakers is playing host to noted visual artist Lynne Yamamoto June 10-21 for an intensive installation-based workshop. This is a rare opportunity for Hawai'i's visual artists to work with a nationally recognized artist (with local roots.) Space is limited. Call 536-5507 for more information.
Grant for Alliance: The Hawai'i Alliance for Arts Education has been awarded a grant of $105,000 over the next three years. The grant is the result of a new program by which the Atherton Family Foundation offers general operating support to key intermediary organizations. The Alliance serves as an advocate and information source for arts programs throughout the state. The money will be used for a new support position and workstation.
