Kahilu Exhibits will present Hānauna Kapa from January 31 to March 10, 2019 in the galleries of the Kahilu Theatre. The exhibit will feature the artwork of Roen Hufford as well kapa artists curated by Hufford- Bernice Akamine, Geno Bergmann, Pomai Bertelmann, Lanakila Mangauil, Yvonne Yarber-Carter, Keoki Apokolani Carter, Pualani Lincoln-Maielua and Keali’i Bertelmann. Also on exhibit will be small works by students of Roen Hufford, kapa making tools by Frank McClure and photographs by Tami Kauakea Winston.
Hānauna Kapa presents the regrowth and process of kapa-making, from its traditional roots to the contemporary artists on Hawai’i island who create kapa today. The discoveries, experiences and creative growth of the community of contemporary kapa makers demonstrate that the creative spirit of the past is still very much a part of the fabric of Hawaiian life today. “We at Kaihlu Theatre are proud to be exhibiting the important work these kapa artists and cultural practitioners working in Hawai’i today,” says Margo Ray, Kahilu Exhibits Coordinator.
