This curated exhibition, Kona People, pairs artists with Kona farmers to create works which convey the spirit of "Kona People" through explorations in portraiture. From paintings to digital media and drawings, artists employ a variety of processes to capture connections between these farmers, the aina and their work. In this collaborative project, farmers and artists share stories, lessons learned from the land and visions of the future.
Featured artists include Adare, Noel Badges Pugh, Naehalani Breeland, Aspen Dewey, Ronit Fahl, Amanda Lillibridge, Mary Lovein, Miho Morinoue, Brandon Reis, Virginia Small, William Wingert and Hana Yoshihata.
