Mahalo to all of our O’ahu ‘ohana who came out to celebrate and support last Friday at the fundraiser at the MAMo Gallery for PEWA!
Artists Carl Pao and Solomon Enos working together inspired a collaborative consciousness expressed as PEWA. This “butterfly patch” commonly associated with the repair of a beloved ‘umeke, is an old symbol of connecting, a healing tool to bring flesh together, a link between man and gods, a rejoining of precious wood. The connection is in itself, a thing of beauty.
Beautiful art and beautiful company–we owe a heartfelt mahalo to artists Solomon Enos, Carl Pao, and to Maile Meyer, Dana, Na Mea, Pa’i Foundation and the rest of the MAMo folks for their support.
You can go and check out PEWA at the MAMo Gallery in Chinatown for a few more weeks!
