Summer Fine Art Festival at NTBG

National Tropical Botanical Garden and Women Artists of Kaua‘i
5th Annual Summer Fine Art Festival 
on Sunday, June 23, 2013 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 
at the Southshore Visitors Center
Come relax in a beautiful, tropical garden and treat yourself to a fun art festival where you can meet and talk story with some of Kauai's most prolific women artists.   Patrice Pendarvis, Donia Lilly, Helen Turner, Anna Skaradzinska, Rhonda Forsberg, Leslie Hagen, Keani Andrade, Lannie Boesiger  and Marionette Taboniar will be discussing their creative process and some may even demonstrate.   Plus, gallery quality art will be for sale in a variety of styles and mediums with a portion of the proceeds supporting NTBG.

In the morning, Dr. Matthew Miller will soothe us with his relaxing guitar music from 10 a.m. to noon, and then Kauai's own "Slack Key Lady", Cindy Combs, will be performing a special concert for us from noon to 1pm.  Paradise Grinds will also be on site with their delicious plate lunches, snacks, refreshments, and shave ice. 

The Southshore Visitors Center is located across from Spouting Horn at 4425 Lawa‘i Rd, Po‘ipu.  For more info call the Center at 742-2433.

The mission of the National Tropical Botanical Garden is to enrich life through discovery, scientific research, conservation & education by perpetuating the survival of plants, ecosystems, & cultural knowledge of tropical regions.

The Women Artists of Kaua‘i promotes the works of female artists on the island while raising funds for local charities on Kaua‘i. All works are original, consisting of paintings, prints, photography, drawings, sculptures, pottery, mixed-media, metal, glass, fabric and textile art, or digital art.

Carol Bevis

Untitled, Acrylic

Women Artists of Kauai proudly welcomes our new member, Carol Bevis!  Carol is an acrylics and mixed media artist on the north shore of Kauai.  Her mixed media pieces can incorporate found and recycled items including shells, beach glass, driftwood, old boards and frames.

Carol states, "My passions are exploring, expressing and creating, both the inner and outer worlds. When I am creating I am totally focussed and present with what is unfolding. Art is fun! A year and a half ago, I was walking past Wainiha and saw a "For Rent" sign next to Red Hot Mamas and thought, "I can come up with something for this." By the next day, the concept for 7 Artists Gallery congealed: a co-operative endeavor for emerging and under-represented artists on Kaua'i to empower and enable artists like me to focus on and live from our art. Currently, we are 11 women artists and the original vision continues."

Welcome aboard Carol!  For more of her work, please visit http://www.caroldianeart.com/
