Volcano Art Center’s Rainforest Gallery at Niaulani will soon serve as host to an inspiring new collection of artwork titled “The Garden Within.” Created by Volcano artist Phan Barker, this contemporary multimedia exhibit will be on display Saturday, May 4, through Friday, May 31, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 from 4 to 6 p.m. Phan will lead an exhibit tour beginning at 5 p.m., offering insights into her technique, process and inspiration. The artist will also be available every Tuesday in May from 10 a.m. to noon.
“The Garden Within” features abstract fiber sculptures, quilts and paintings made of silk, thread, beads and wood meant to illustrate the beauty found internally as one tends to soul searching and spiritual discovery.
Originally from Vietnam, Phan has been an active member of the Volcano community since 2000, considers Hawaii to be a healing refuge, and feels blessed by the sacred energy she feels on the Big Island.
The Rainforest Gallery at Niaulani is located at 19-4074 Old Volcano Road in Volcano Village. For more information, visit www.volcanoartcenter.org or contact the gallery directly at 967-8211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
