Hawai'i in watercolor, pastel, collage, sculpture

By David C. Farmer
Special to the Advertiser

The Louis Pohl Gallery continues to present lively and popular exhibitions, at least judged by the considerable size of the crowds and sales at a recent First Friday event.

"Venting II" by Deborah Pacheco, watercolor and pastel, is among works in a variety of styles and media portraying Island subjects, by five artists at the Louis Pohl Gallery on Nu'uanu Avenue.

Frances Hill, a resident artist at the gallery, shows a new collection of large abstracts using watercolor, pastel and collage.

The husband-wife team of Jinja Kim and George Woollard are showing together for the first time their collaborative mixed-media house forms, created from materials found on their Palolo Valley property, where they have spent the last five years building a home in the lush rain forest at the back of the valley.

Deborah Pacheco and Arlene Woo, working primarily in watercolor and mixed media, display a variety of styles and local subjects, including volcanoscapes and dancers.

Playful and light, this exhibition merits a quick look just for fun.
