Downtown Art Center at 1041 Nuʻuanu Ave. Second Floor, in the Chinatown Gateway Plaza, is thrilled to host ‘A Century Plus Two,’ an exhibition of the watercolor paintings and fun, quirky, ceramic work of 102-year-old Hawaiʻi artist Esther Nowell, in its Performance Space gallery.

She has been an illustrator for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, an arts educator, role model and inspiration for many generations of local artists, the President of Hawaiʻi Potter’s Guild, a children’s storybook illustrator, and an innovative artist and craftsperson, best known for her unique techniques of working with clay, and for her watercolor art.
