Inspired and Fired Art Show
MAC News Release
The Molokai Arts Center (MAC) will present an exhibition of new works by local artist Kathleen Mendes from Oct. 5-18 at the He `Ike Lihi Showroom. Called “Inspired and Fired by Kathleen Mendes,” the exhibit will feature ceramic pieces composed with a variety of techniques, including slab, coil, and wheel.
When Molokai’s master potter Dan Bennett opened his studio doors in 2007 to those eager to explore ceramics, Mendes had the opportunity to pick up a ball of clay and turn it into a useful object. Since then she has been working with this medium, discovering all the exciting possibilities it holds for the artist. As a member of the Molokai Arts Center, Kathleen has been fortunate to continue developing her relationship with clay as a means to create art.
This is Mendes’ first solo show, and the MAC’s first solo show of a member artist.
The public is invited to join the artist at an opening night reception on Oct. 5 beginning at 5 p.m. The He `Ike Lihi Showroom is located at the MAC in Kualapu`u, behind Coffees of Hawaii. For more information call 567-9696 or see our website, molokaiartscenter.com.
