New art at Aupuni Place

Text Summit Staff

Art and karaoke will be a winning combination at the space formerly occupied by Na Mea Hawaii at the ewa end of Ward Warehouse.

The Aupuni Place gallery and workspace will have two exhibit openings on Thursday, May 17, plus karaoke courtesy the Super Awesome Art Squad. Just inside the gallery's entrance is a collection of paintings under the title subject of Urbanity Honolulu. Landscapes by Tommy Hite, Andrew Yamauchi and Shingo Yamazaki reflect the chaotic, moody, mundane, scenic, and surreal of life in the city. The reception will be from 5-7 p.m. offering light pupu and drinks. The exhibit will be up to June 4.

And just outside the art squad's space are two paintings by Alina Kawai. The weather-contrast works of Emptying the Pocket blurs the line between certainty and dream, creating an alternate reality. Make sure you also check out the Super Awesome room as you sing to your heart's content. Kawai's paintings will be on display through next week to May 23.
