Hawaii Craftsmen calling for entries

The Hawaii Craftsmen 47th annual Statewide Juried Exhibition is Oct. 10 to Nov. 1 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. Artists from all islands can enter traditional or nontraditional, functional or nonfunctional craft with a fresh approach in categories of clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood or mixed media. There is $2,500 in cash prizes.

To make it easier for artists to enter, there are three locations islandwide for intake. Final jurying begins at 10 a.m. Sept. 30 at the Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. Selected Big Island entries are shipped to Oahu.

West Hawaii artists may submit entries from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Donkey Mill Art Center, 78-6670 Mamalahoa Highway, Holualoa. Volunteers are needed to help with intake. Call Kate Jacobson at 987-9196

Hamakua Coast entries will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Hugh Jenkins and Stephanie Ross Honokaa Glass Studio. For directions, call 775-1167 or email hujenkins@hawaiiantel.net.

Prior to drop off of artwork, entries should be wrapped securely for transport to Volcano. Large pieces need to be taken directly to Volcano for the Sept. 30 jurying. All others will be transported by volunteers in the artist’s original packed boxes. Any artist who will not be present for jurying and pickup of work should include necessary instructions with their pieces. Online registration and the full prospectus are available at hawaiicraftsmen.org.
