ART EXHIBITION: WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES DANA BREWER

February 9 -- March 31, 2017

Public Reception: Thursday, February 9, 2017 / 6-8pm

Parc Promenade Gallery, Waikiki Parc Hotel


Dana Brewer's sculptures are highlighted as part of an expanded arts partnership of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM), the Halekulani and its sister hotel, the Waikiki Parc.

Dana Brewer was born and raised in Washington State, for the most part, in the countryside where she developed a love for nature and for the beauty of the large oak and pine trees that surrounded her. In 2011, Brewer attended the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) to pursue a career in interpreting. She decided to try glassblowing. Although she had always feared heat she was somehow drawn to the molten glass and kilns. As her fears subsided, Brewer discovered that heat, gravity, and breath can unite to create the most elegant, nature-inspired forms. In May 2016, Brewer received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a focus on glass from the Department of Art + Art History, UHM.

Brewer states, "I feel an unspoken kinship with trees and nature. For me, the easiest way to get lost and found at the same time is in nature. Art is my way to praise nature, to continue the conversation and recognition of the vital connection between an individual and nature, and to emphasize the importance of the creation and protection of nature above its desecration."

Her recent group exhibitions include Vision: 2016 Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition, The Art Gallery, UHM; Viscosity (2015), Commons Gallery, UHM; and Hawai‘i Glass Artists juried exhibitions Translucent (2016) and Hot. Glass. (2015) at The Arts at Marks Garage, Honolulu.


Guitarist Christopher Hopper will provide music at the opening reception in this series of up-and-coming young artists' exhibitions at the Waikiki Parc. In 2016, he received a Bachelor of Music degree in performance from the Department of Music, UHM. He has also studied with guitar virtuosos Carlos Barbosa Lima, and the Brazilian Guitar Duo's Douglas Lora and João Luiz.
