ART EXHIBITION: WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES JANET TRAN
June 30 -- September 9, 2016
Public Reception: Thursday, June 30, 2016 / 6-8 pm
Parc Promenade Gallery, Waikiki Parc Hotel
Because of Honolulu's recent rapid urban growth, Janet Tran became interested in how the built environment influences human experience. She bases her works on recognizable structures, forms, and elements drawn from architecture, but jars our expectations by using unconventional materials ranging from leaves to cardboard. In this exhibition Tran playfully continues this investigation by merging modular modernist sculptures with plush.
Tran was recently awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Department of Art + Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM).
Guitarist Aaron Cardenas will provide music at the opening reception. Cardenas, received his Bachelor of Music degree from UHM's Department of Music, and will be attending Yale University's graduate program this September. He has studied with guitar virtuosos Benjamin Verdery, Frederic Hand, Carlos Barbosa Lima, and the Brazilian Guitar Duo's Douglas Lora and João Luiz.
