Opening Reception Friday, May 6th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Donkey Mill Art Center (DMAC) is proud to announce our 1st Biennial Juried Statewide Exhibition 2016, WOOD INK FIBER, open to artists working in Hawai’i in the medium of woodblock printing. This exhibition will be featured at DMAC May 6 to July 9, 2016.

The woodcut print is as old in the islands as the patterns that decorate pre-contact kapa cloth, and as new as patterns carved into plywood with a rotary tool. The use of wood, pigment, and paper in many traditions continues to be a vital art form. The focus of this exhibition will be to explore woodcut printing as currently practiced in Hawai’i.

Artists in Hawai’i working with the medium of woodblock printmaking—either western style or Japanese Moku Hanga—were invited to submit up to three prints. All artwork was to be original and created after January 1, 2015. Submissions must not have been previously shown in other exhibitions, galleries, or online. University students were encouraged to apply.

The work to be included in the exhibition was be selected by the juror, John Buck, on March 18; artists were notified via email on March 23, 2016. The Donkey Mill Art Center congratulates the following artists whose work was selected:

Meredith Yasui
Edd Ikeda
