Solve the art clues: Day No. 3 of quiz

Advertiser staff and news services

The state Art Museum at Richards and South Hotel streets will open Nov. 3. In anticipation, we're sponsoring a Who's That Artist? quiz. Those who correctly answer all five questions published here this week will be entered in a drawing for tickets to the first tour, 9:30 a.m. Nov. 3. Send all five answers in a single envelope, fax document or e-mail by Oct. 30. (Do not send the answers one at a time!)

Today's quiz question: This artist was born in 1941 in Surabaya, Indonesia, where she was educated in Dutch schools. She developed a love of figure drawing from private art tutoring her parents arranged while she was in the fourth grade. She moved to Hawai'i in 1967 and became recognized for her distinctive large-scale batiks of Hawaiian women. The artist used layers of torn Japanese rice and Thai mulberry papers with thin washes of watercolor between each to create a transparent and luminous surface.

Mail to: P.O. Box 3110, Honolulu, HI 96813. Fax: 525-8055. E-mail: islandlife@honoluluadvertiser.com.

Include name and daytime phone number. We will call if you win.

Answers Nov. 3 in the Island Life section.

Christmas secretary

Here's a way to add yet more meaning to the holiday chore of sending Christmas cards: The Institute for Human Services, which aids the homeless and needy, is not only offering greeting cards designed by watercolorist Peggy Chun, but will address, personalize and mail them for you.

The suggested donation is $10 a card (the cost of one night's food and shelter for an IHS guest).

Or you can just order the Spirit of Aloha cards for an appropriate donation.

Credit cards are accepted. Call 845-7150 to have an order form sent or faxed to you or e-mail cards@IHS-hawaii.org. Volunteers are needed to address cards.

Film festival tickets

The 2002 Hawai'i International Film Festival box office opens Friday at Dole Signature Theatres, at 734B Iwilei Road. Guides to the nearly 200 films in the festival — which takes place from Nov. 1 to 10 on O'ahu and Nov. 8 to 10 on the Neighbor Islands — are available at the box office and at Blockbuster and Starbucks outlets statewide.

Honolulu venues include Signature Theatres, the Doris Duke at the Academy, Consolidated's Waikiki 2 and 3 theaters, and the Blaisdell Center.

Admission: $7 general, $6 for children, military, students, and those 62 or older, with a $1 discount for showtimes before 6 p.m. Opening-night tickets are $10. No Internet ticket sales this year but phone charges are possible with Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Phoned or faxed orders must be picked up the next day at the box office; tickets will not be mailed. Reservations: 528-4433; fax orders (with credit card information), 525-5303.
