  • Oh, my! ART!
    • Long Lost Art by MaryAnne Long
This is my most exciting art happening yet - Wahi Pana, A Sense of Place.  I will be in this special exhibition AND master of ceremonies for its opening reception on June 1 at Honolulu Museum of Art School Main Gallery.  Honolulu Museum of Art (HoMA) is the most prestigious art museum in the whole Pacific.  HoMA houses great works like Van Gogh, Gauguin, Renoir, Monet, Picasso.

Here is the painting I did for it. I focused on the Na Koloa (ducks) who have made the marsh their habitat.

HoMA talks about our exhibition in its blog: http://blog.honoluluacademy.org/creating-art-for-wahi-pana/?utm_source=wordfly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Enewsletter%3AMay27%2C2019&utm_content=version_A&promo=5581&fbclid=IwAR319WBDXOjmEzMzFCzQwN07cpCgFQ4NuYX6BYgOyrIsPlIZ-RyVfq3LKSY


I also wrote about it in my newspaper column:

Can you tell I am excited about this!!!

Mahalo, Dennis, Nolan, and Patricia

The opening reception for our Wahi Pana exhibition was so exciting.  It was very well attended (200+) and got lots of rave reviews for the artwork.

I had so much fun and met so many nice people.  I botched a couple Hawaiian names but will be a better announcer next year.  These men are about to do a sacred chant (oli).

Keep it up, Mea!
Warhol said: Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
