The subject of this year’s Art Maui Symposium is “The Art of Entry: Online Submissions and Opportunities in a Digital Age.”
Art Maui will bring together Inger Tully (Curator of Exhibitions, Contemporary Museum, Honolulu), Neida Bangerter (Exhibition Curator, Maui Arts and Cultural Center), Rui Sasaki (formerly Honolulu Academy of Arts), Ed Lane (Artist), and Gwen Arkin (Artist).
This group will discuss the ever-growing opportunities and challenges that are available to artists on Maui in the digital age. The panel will come from both the artist’s perspective as well as from the noted curators, with their thoughts and suggestions as to how this can help an artist grow a career as an artist. Art Maui will also have a workshop after the panel discussion which will walk artists through the online entry process for the upcoming Artists Of Hawaii 2011 Exhibition at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, which is now 100% by online submissions only. Computer and photographic details will be explored during this workshop, as well as providing a list of sites for online entries in all media for all attending the Symposium.
The Art of Entry Symposium will be held on Saturday, January 15, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Alexa Higashi Meeting Room at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
Mahalo and hope to see you there!
