The Waimea Arts Council will present Squared Away at the Firehouse Gallery from March 26 to April 24. The upcoming show is a departure from past Waimea Arts Council traditions. Curated by Jaclyn MacKinnon, Squared Away aims not to follow a specific theme in the content of the works submitted, but rather to create a strong visual effect in the gallery as a whole, making the exhibition itself an artistic endeavor. The parameters of the show are simple: square canvases. With no size limit or subject constraints, it offers artists a chance to try a new medium, style or subject. Imposing the unusual square format forces the artist to frame his work in an untraditional manner.
The WAC will have an opening reception on Friday, March 28, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Firehouse Gallery, and will serve pupus, wine and Big Island Brewhaus beer compliments of the council.
