Wailoa presents photography by Ambrose


Wailoa Art and Cultural Center presents “Sidewalk Series,” an exhibition of photography by Liz Ambrose, through Jan. 24, with an opening reception slated from 5 to 7 p.m. today.

Ambrose established her roots in Hilo in 1986, after living abroad much of her life. She graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo with a fine arts degree and is currently pursuing her interest in photography.

“Searching for a new direction for my life, I spent a lot of time walking and looking down at the sidewalks and streets of Hilo. I found beauty in ordinary things that you see every day without really looking at them. Ninety-nine percent of these images were taken in the small downtown area of Hilo,” Ambrose said.

Wailoa Art and Cultural Center is a division of State Parks, Department of Land and Natural Resources. It is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and noon to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. For more information, call 933-0416 or email wailoa@yahoo.com.
