The One Night Stand June exhibit “COLOR THROUGH MY EYES” will feature artwork from both patients and former patients of the Louis Vuitton Creative Arts Program at the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific (REHAB). The artist was asked to choose one color and illustrate what that color means to them.  They were encouraged to let their imagination run wild, using different shades of that color to convey their point.  

The Louis Vuitton Creative Arts Program at the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific (REHAB) was established in 1994 and is supported by gifts from Louis Vuitton Hawaii. It has been supported by Louis Vuitton Hawaii since its beginning in 1994. 

This innovative therapeutic art studio compliments existing therapy programs and enhances the rehabilitative process for individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities
The Creative Arts Program is open to REHAB’s inpatients, outpatients and former patients only. It provides master instruction in the fine arts, art materials, equipment and space in the therapeutic art studio.
The program does more than teaching patients how to paint. It gives them a chance to work on rebuilding their strength and helps them to fight depression which is common in people who have experienced stroke and major injuries and illnesses.

Also, in the Courtyard for the first time will be PATIENCE BOERSMA whose designs are under the heading, 'Great Art Needs Patience'.   Her son provided an apron with that statement embroidered on it, which she uses whenever she is being creative by cooking, creating a piece of jewelry, at her sewing machine, or when painting with watercolors. Having grown up on the beaches of Oahu, she has a love of beachcombing for shells, bits of glass, and interesting shoreline finds. It was a silver jewelry making class that blended all of these together.  Six jewelry making classes later, she still combs the beaches and puts creations together for family and friends.   Another recent adventure of creativity and exploration has produced up-cycled and re-used handbags from Thrift store items.   Her husband has encouraged her to step out in public for the first time with her jewelry.

Returning to display his creative work will be BRAD NEAL with “more heteromorphic art from Brad.”  He plays in several mediums and enjoys the discussions that each oddity provokes. Ranging from portraits such as Redd Foxx on velvet to unconscious art using both hands simultaneously”

SUSAN RISSE is a mixed-media artist, currently living and working at Glitter Gypsy's Art & Adventures in Honolulu, Hawaii. Susan sees the World as her canvas, offering inspiration everywhere. She paints, sculpts, designs & creates one of a kind jewelry from both new & vintage elements, & leads Women's Creativity Workshops, both locally, as well as internationally.

CASSIE SAY and her mother, Yu Zhen Zhong bring an exclusive collection as a manifestation of their diverse background.  They have collaborated in a mother and daughter unison to create gifts and accessories to be unique and sophisticated with a focus creating gifts as special inside as on the outside.  The new yellow diamonds are rare and as beautiful as moonlight. Their authentic jade collection may establish good luck, prosperity, and health in 2012.

DOVER AND RAVEN ABRAMS will also return to the Courtyard from the Big Island with their Jewelry and unique paintings.

Most of the Chinatown Artist Lofts will be open for visitors seeking an art experience as well.  Go upstairs via the Smith Street door or the red stairs in the center of the Courtyard.  If you cannot navigate the stairs, there is an elevator for you to use.

The SECRET BEER GARDEN will be open again at the Gate as a  continuing benefit for The ARTS at Marks.

Entry into the venue is either from the Maunakea Street doors or through the Beer Garden at the Smith Street Gate.   Although it may look like a private party from the street, this One Night Stand is always open to the public.
