Wanna see some art? There are 2300 pieces by 320 artists at this year’s Art Gallery at the Punahou School annual Carnival to raise money for their various programs.
The Art Gallery proceeds go to support the scholarship fund with 50% to the school fund and 50% to the artist and they claim is the largest single art sale in Hawai’i in total dollar amounts. The carnival, itself, is the largest high school carnival in the country. It’s so big, it is a moneymaker for a nearby private school, Maryknoll who charges for parking for event goers. So, you can add to your art collection while doing two good deeds at once–donate to a scholarship and support a local artist.
Since the goal is raise money–‘best-selling’ artists are given the choice to enter more pieces but entry level is 3 pieces per artist. I have 3 pieces in the show this year–Ko’olau landscape “Windward Breezes”, North Shore landscape “Makaua: Hidden Valley” and a new piece–an underwater scene “YVR: Passing Through”
The Carnival features the usual tivoli style rides by E.K Fernandez, food booths, entertainments, etc. Read a yelp! review here.
