Restraint and Revolution: The Art of Adare
Restraint and Revolution is a cutting edge portrait show of counterculture icons, painted here on the Big Island by artist Rose Adare. Using corsetry as a symbol of Restraint and Revolution, Adare’s infamous models include professor Kimberly Dark of the University of Hawaii at Hilo, a national LGBT speaker; Native American rock legend Buffy Sainte-Marie; Big Island body-mod artist Kala Kaiwi and many more.
Now at the East Hawaii Cultural Center and bound on an international art tour, Restraint and Revolution hits Kona-side at the J+ Gallery at 76-5892 Mamalahoa Hwy. in Holualoa. The grand opening is at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, with a gallery talk at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
“A wonderful party. I have not seen that big a turn out for artists at the EHCC,” reported Jim Rhodes, a board member of the East Hawaii Cultural Center in Hilo.
“Done in a fluid style that is loose and painterly but without sacrificing detail or nuance. Adare is classically trained, but the art is anything but old fashioned.”
