Culinary collection

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Proof positive that one man's trash is another man's collectible: Big Island collector Peter Underwood has been amassing early plantation artifacts for many years and will display more than 50 vintage metal and porcelain ginger graters at the Hawai'i All-Collectors Show today through Sunday at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. The earliest graters were hand-formed from scrap metal; later ones were imported from Japan.

Digital dentist

The artist formerly known as Disco Doc is heading out on a promotional tour of Europe to promote his digital artwork, global cyberculture and, he hopes, the aloha spirit.

Rodney Chang, a Honolulu dentist known in art circles as Pygoya, will be on hand for exhibitions in Austria, Hungary, France and Germany, starting in November.

Local residents may know Chang for the discotheque waiting area in his office. He has, by the way, been invited to dance at a Frankfurt dis-co that is featuring his work.

Swap your stuff

Have a lot of stuff but not a lot of room? Clean out your closets and head to the Gentry Waipi'o Shopping Center to get a booth for the Community Swap Meet on Aug. 9. The event will be held at the shopping center, right across from the Central O'ahu Regional Park.

Applications are available through Foodland stores and at any store in Gentry Waipi'o Shopping Center. Deadline to register is Monday. Booths are limited and assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. For more information, call Sherry Goya at 288-2590.

Wizardly treats

Here's a chance to play dress-up and win a treat when you attend the opening performance of "The Wizard of Oz" at 8 tonight at Diamond Head Theatre.

Those who don costumes as Dorothy, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion or the Scarecrow, will win a treat at the box office.

Audiences will have a chance to meet Kim Anderson (below) as Dorothy and Tracy Yamamoto as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, as they greet patrons after the matinee performances this Sunday and again July 26-27 and Aug. 2-3. Information: 733-0274.
