Queens’ MarketPlace adds new tenant

Olivia Clare Boutique, the newest member of the Queens’ MarketPlace ohana, will open its doors this month at the Kohala Coast resort shopping center.

Featuring Hawaii-made fashions, accessories and products for the home, this new store represents four generations in the creative life of owner-operator Audrey Frydenlund.

After learning the art of jewelry-making, Audrey expanded her passion into a cottage industry, a press release announcing the opening stated. Her Etsy shop did so well so fast that she was able to branch out into a premier brick-and-mortar store in Hawi, with her mother Kathryn. Audrey named the shop for her daughter, Olivia, and her grandmother, Kathryn’s mom Clare.

This new location showcases Frydenlund’s original gemstone, pearl, seaglass and other jewelry; aloha wear for men, women and children; bath and body products; and fragrances made from island ingredients among other products.

Keck scientist takes on new director role

W. M. Keck Observatory congratulated Keck Observatory chief scientist Anne Kinney on her appointment as the director of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), the largest department at the National Science Foundation (NSF).

In her new role, Kinney will not only lead federal investments in astronomy, but in chemistry, physics, materials science, and mathematics as well.

“We are thrilled for Anne; to be a part of the NSF leadership team is an extraordinary opportunity,” said Keck Observatory director Hilton Lewis in a press release. “While we will certainly miss Anne’s leadership at Keck, we are proud that someone from the Keck Observatory will play such an influential role in advancing the United States’ scientific aspirations.”

Kinney has been Keck Observatory’s chief scientist since August of 2015 and has made significant contributions to the observatory’s mission. Most notably, she has been instrumental in strengthening the powerful synergy between Keck Observatory and NASA.

“It has been a huge honor to work with Keck Observatory’s scientific community,” she said. I have so much admiration and respect for the employees who work tirelessly around the clock to make sure each astronomer has a successful night of observing.”
