Unfortunately I will be volunteering at the Day at Queen Emma event but would be seeing Babs’ latest effort if I could. What about you?
While known for her work in glass and sculpture, the “Reflective Elements” showing will showcase another aspect of Bab’s talent: her ability as a jewelry marker. The works that she creates are innovative and combine different textures and elements including beads of different sizes to create one-of-a-kind pieces. To see what will be shown in this exhibition click here.
You will have an opportunity to meet Babs and her fellow artists at a gallery reception Saturday, October 1 from one to three p.m. For directions to the Gallery click here.
Can’t make it on Saturday? The show remains open until October 27. Try to catch it when you can at the Gallery at Ward Centre. New paintings by Susie Y. Anderson will also be on display.
Note: Mark Mitsuda is the glass blowing instructor at Punahou School. Many of you who are Punahou parents (Babs and myself included) may remember him from those open houses where he quickly blew a glass ball or two to demonstrate how comfortable he is with the medium.
