The Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present a new exhibit titled “Paper Water Wind” over the next month featuring a group of artists, including Zenobia Lakdawalla of Maui, selected from local and national outlets to explore the concepts of water and wind through the primary medium of paper.

The exhibit runs today through August 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Schaefer International Gallery in Kahului. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, as well as before some Castle Theater and Yokouchi Pavilion shows. Free entry.

“The artists’ newly developed works will reveal the many iterations of paper – an extremely versatile medium with dimensional potential – going beyond the framed art format and unfolding and altering its properties in transformational installations”, according to the press release. “Each artist has channeled these themes of water and wind through a distinct approach, whether activating these elements in their working process, representing them through nuanced rendering, or evoking their rhythmic qualities in sculpted forms. .”

Lakdawalla uses printmaking processes to layer patterns onto sheets of paper, which she then reworks into prints and dimensional shapes to reflect wind or water.

Erin McAdams from Wisconsin and Deborah Nehmad from Oahu collaborated using the waters of their respective locations to create ink drawings and then translating them into photoetched prints.

Fellow Oahu artists, Janetta Napp and Keith Yurdana, will also showcase their work that embodies other natural elements, such as energy, wind and water.

New York artist Wes Bruce will return to the Schaefer International Gallery as artist-in-residence for this exhibition, according to the press release. Here he will build and lead a series of workshops for adults and students titled “Confluence: The Healing Depths of Water, People, and Language” for two weeks in July.

This Paper Water Wind exhibit is presented by the Maui Arts & Cultural Center and sponsored in part by the Maui County Office of Economic Development and the Hawaii Tourism Authority through the Community Enrichment Program.
