One year contract available for the winner of the “Made in Hawaii” artist contest
HONOLULU (KHON2) – There are only a few days left to submit entries for the “Made in Hawaii” Artist Contest in Waikiki.
The Park West Gallery is offering a one-year contract to the winner of its competition.
Receive news wherever you are with KHON 2GO, KHON’s morning podcast, every morning at 8 a.m.
Submissions must be sent by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 11. Park West is looking for three works to showcase the artist’s message and creativity.
“Basically, we’re asking for three different images that you think speak the best about you and your style. And these images can be anything from sculpture to painting to collage; these fundamental forms of art that we know, we want to be able to see them.
Arturo Torrez, Artistic Director of the Park West Gallery
Submissions don’t have to be in the same style – artists can choose what they want to submit.
Applicants must submit a photo of their work to Park West and a panel of art experts will then select the semi-finalists. But art lovers, don’t worry, you are part of the competition too.
“But ultimately the winner will be chosen by the people,” Torrez said. “We’re going to reach out to everyone in Hawaii, all art lovers, and we’re going to ask them to come and see the art and vote on who should be the winner of the ‘Made in Hawaii’ art competition.
The winner of the one-year contract will have the incredible opportunity to showcase their work in Park West, where the community can see and – if the artist is lucky – buy their art.
“The Park West Gallery has been around for 52 years, we’ve helped over three million collectors collect art,” Torrez said. “And that’s what we want to do: bring Hawaiian art to the masses, bring our expertise, and showcase the collection of fantastic artists who I know are here in Hawaii.”
Applications can be submitted by email to [email protected] and more information on eligibility can be found on the Park West Gallery Website.
Park West is located at Waikiki Beach Walk, 226 Lewers St. Suite L118, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
