Artist2Artist-a presentation about entering Mālama Wao Akua

NEW event connecting artists to artists about submitting an art piece into Mālama Wao Akua

Have you always wanted to enter East Maui Watershed Partnership and Viewpoints Gallery’s native species art exhibit Mālama Wao Akua (MWA), but had a hard time understanding the eligibility requirements and how to find out what is native to Maui Nui??

We heard you so we got 2 artists that are also volunteer conservationists to help explain it in a way you can understand. Join renowned artists Jupiter Nielsen and Mike Neal as they discuss their journey entering MWA and share their own personal research and images of native species including native plants and native honeycreepers found on Maui. We will have MWA entry forms, examples of places and books for your your OWN research, and staff members to ask questions about entering the exhibit.

Jurors for MWA ’14

We are excited to announce the jurors for this year’s show. We use a blend of art and science.


Abbey studio shotArt based juror:

Abigail Romanchak received a BFA and MFA in printmaking from the University of Hawaii, Manoa. She has held teaching positions at Punahou School, The Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center, The Maui Arts and Cultural Center, The Contemporary Museum and The Honolulu Museum of Art. In 2007 Abigail moved home to Maui to assist master printmaker, Paul Mullowney at Hui Press. Currently Abigail is producing new bodies of work for upcoming group and solo exhibitions and also teaching art at The Maui Arts and Cultural Center.

Abigail has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Hawai’i, nationally and internationally.  Her work belongs to many public and private collections including, The Australia National Museum, The White House, The Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Hanapi Foundation, Jon Hara Associates, Inc. Architects, The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii, The Four Seasons and The Ritz Carlton. Most recently, Abigail received the Ellen Craig Choy Award, as most outstanding artist, in the 2010 Biennial IX at The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu.

Abigail sees her prints as a way to empower and assert a Hawaiian sense of identity and to perpetuate Hawaiian culture through art.  She believes that native cultures are jeopardized once they stop speaking to people in the present day.


Jordan2Science based juror:

Jordan Jokiel is the Program Manager of the Leeward Haleakala Watershed Restoration Partnership. Since graduating from the University of Hawaii in 1993, Jordan has worked with a number of conservation agencies throughout Hawaii, including the University of Hawaii, the Division of Forestry and Wildlife, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and The  Nature Conservancy.  From 2001—2009 Jordan was with the East Maui Watershed Partnership where he managed the field crew and then became Program Manager.  It is an honor to be jurying this show with my wife and  friends and colleagues at EMWP.
