TRASH ARTISTS call open!

Statement of Juror Ira Ono:

“Once again, artists are in the vanguard of public awareness. I believe they were among the first to experiment with recycling on a personal level. (Art supplies can be expensive!) With this in mind, I invite Big Island artists and outsider artists to enter up to 3 pieces for this juried exhibit. I will select works best representing the concept of art from trash. Originality, creativity and craftsmanship count. Large, three dimensional pieces are encouraged”


  • INTAKE: September 29. All entries must be the original works from artists living on the Big Island & not previously shown in a juried exhibit. A maximum of 3 works per artist may be entered at $5.00 per entry.

With this exhibition we hope to educate and increase the understanding of the island’s socioeconomic landscape and eco-system, to encourage artists and viewers to re-think the shop and drop mentality, and to stimulate our brains and hearts to find ways in which we may lower on carbon foot print for our islands. Remember- you're not a hoarder, you're a Trash Artist!
