Every generation has a story to tell that is unique to them. Windward Community College’s Gallery ʻIolani presents Brave New World, a new exhibition displaying the work of seven artists, who got their start at community colleges and are in their 20s and 30s, March 29–May 5.

The featured professional artists are Alina Kawai, Erin Marquez, Kana Ogawa, Bronson Shimabukuro, Daniel Stratis, Chiho Ushio and Andrew Yamauchi.

“I am so inspired by the sincere work of these young artists, most who started in a community college environment, then studied at UH Mānoa, and are now working toward professional art careers,” said Toni Martin, Gallery ʻIolani director. “Emerging artists often do not have this opportunity to exhibit in a premier gallery such as Gallery ʻIolani.”

Meet the artists

  • Artist talk: April 28, 3–4 p.m.

The artist talk and exhibition are free and open to the public with free parking.
