Kona Frame displays Izumi’s acrylics


Jason Izumi will show his recent works in acrylic, both on paper and canvas, at the Kona Frame Shop through March. The paintings depict seascapes and tide pools of the Kona Coast, from Honaunau to Kiholo Bay, and have a timeless, ethereal feel.

Izumi, a lifelong Kona resident, began to paint full time in the 1980s while attending the Pratt Institute of Art and Design and Columbia University. He has had numerous gallery exhibits on the mainland and in Honolulu, and has received multiple awards of excellence and best in show honors. His work is in the collections of the Daytona Museum of Art and the DeLand Museum of Art, both in Florida, as well as the Ogunquit Museum of Art in Maine. A number of his pieces are also in the Mauna Lani Resort collection.

The Kona Frame Shop, in the Old Industrial Area, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday; from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday. For more information, call 329-1722 or visit konaframeshop.com.
