2013 KCC Summer Art Exhibition (Jun 3-8)

Kaua`i Community College students from Painting, Drawing, Graphic Design, Photography, and Video Production classes held a soft opening of their exhibition of works at the Kukui Grove Shopping Center in Lihue, June 3rd. They invite the public to visit the exhibit.

The show is being held June 3 - 8, 2013, in the Kaua`i Society of Artists Gallery at Kukui Grove Shopping Center. The public is also invited to the Artist Reception on Friday, June 7, at 6:00 pm.

“This is the first time holding an exhibition outside of the Kaua`i CC campus. Students are able to not only exhibit, but also sell their artwork. The goals of Kaua`i CC’s art programs are to give those students hoping to move to a four-year education a great start, or to give those who are looking to expand their skill set the skills they need,” explained Mathew Fulmer, Art instructor at Kaua`i CC.

The Kaua`i Society of Artists generously donated the gallery space and waived commission fees to support Kaua`i CC students’ endeavors. The exhibition exposes the College’s art programs to those who may not be aware of the diversity of courses available at KCC.

“This exhibition is a great opportunity for both the students and the Kaua`i community to view a wide range of finished works. The students have the opportunity to see their work on the walls of a gallery, or on a big screen, and feel the pride of accomplishment that goes with a public display. Holding the exhibition at Kukui Grove Shopping Center opens the display to the whole island, including visitors. In addition, the community gets a window into the creativity being nurtured at the College, witnessing the new, home grown talent that is blossoming there. It encourages potential Kaua`i CC students to develop a vision of what they could be learning at Kaua`i CC. Truly a WIN-WIN event for everyone,” commented Gary Ellwood, Digital Video lecturer.

Angel Camarillo, a Kaua`i CC student who is pursuing a degree in Graphic Design, has some of her works on display and is has volunteered to be one of the exhibit sitters. “I want to get a feel for what I want to make sure of what I will pursue in life," said Camarillo about the choice she made to study at Kaua`i CC. Studying at Kaua`i CC also works for her because she wants to “be closer to home and see my sister and brother grow up,” she said.
