More than 500 watercolors the largest display ever in Hawai'i are featured in the gallery. Artists in residence will paint on site and offer demonstrations on Saturdays, 2 to 4 p.m. Gallery hours: 3 to 9 p.m. weekdays, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Validated parking: $1 per hour.
"Live Fast, Die Pretty," is the word from Michael Paul, a UH-Manoa fashion design major who is producing a fashion show.
Fifteen students will offer as many as 20 designs for the show, including casual, hand-painted menswear that speaks to the trend for sleepwear styles. Also 1940s dresses, swimwear and original handbags.
The students also will participate in their annual senior show on April 27, but this show, with its club vibe and no-holds-barred approach to design, offers them a creative alternative.
The event, 7 p.m. April 10 at UH-Manoa's Hemenway Theatre, commemorates Gay Pride Day.
Guidebook takes on life's little tasks
For example: how to carve a turkey, get smoke out of a room, find a bra that fits, set the table for a dinner party, make cut flowers last, figure out how much to tip. It's very down-to-earth and helpful in its way, but nothing that the folks around the water cooler might not have come up with.
The clubs work much like book clubs. An official Web site features at least two new programs each month, along with program descriptions and questions to help get conversation started.
