The Mendonca Building's Courtyard will be open in May with a mixed plate.    Featured will be an informative display from the State Center for Nursing  as well as canvas and knit art, body painting and fine jewelry by local artists.

        An elaborate display by the Hawaii State Center for Nursing will be set up in the corridor by the Maunakea entrance to usher in NURSES WEEK.  Come and see what they are offering to address best practices and quality of care.  They will have teams to present their projects by using large format posters and discussion.  It will be informative and interesting and you even may want to join them in the solutions!!  To make it even more interesting, they will be offering refreshments!
CHRIS STEITZ is a local, but global artist originally from the south east of Oahu.  His art has driven him through every inspiring nook and cranny of Oahu along with places like Ireland, Brooklyn, Prague and Standing Rock North Dakota- to live with the Native American Sioux Tribe. Chris will be displaying a custom Organic American Apparel Tee-Shirt Design created in Brooklyn, NY. Along with this will be original wood block paintings, canvas work, and skateboards, all showing wacky characters and abstract universes.  Given the right circumstances (a model), he will also be doing some body painting on site for the Courtyard visitors.

      STUDIOBIJOUXHAWAII will be represented by owners, Bill and Kihwa Gosline with a sample of work from their studio in Kaimuki.  They are also known for their Open Studio and Children’s jewelry classes.   Kihwa was raised in Kyung Ju, South Korea, renowned for the beauty of the jewelry it produced.  Growing up in this environment, KiHwa was heavily influenced by these treasures from the past.  She moved to Japan and graduated from the prestigious Hiko Mizuno College of Jewelry.   Determined to learn more, KiHwa made the move to the United States to continue her study of gemology in San Diego and eventually to Hawaii.  
Returning with her amazing Knitware, will be BAERBEL “Gigi” MILLER be reintroducing some of the great new fashion hits from Europe...”pompom scarf’s” Hawaii. They are seen all over Paris and the rest of Europe as well.
