Exploring the fine artistry and aesthetic beauty which emerged from work in the coffeeland of Kona, this exhibit elevates the utilitarian through the presentation of original art and objects inspired by coffee culture and heritage. Objects typically prized for their function, many which were essential for coffee work and life, are celebrated here for their exquisite craftsmanship and design elements. This diverse arrangement of works includes lauhala, calligraphy, woodcut, sculpture, sashiko, photography, textiles and more. This event has been generously supported by the Hawaii State Foundation of Culture and the Arts and a donation “In Remembrance of Saburo and Kikue Yamato.  A gift from Ethel, Ted and Kelly Toki”. Additional support was provided by Kona Frame Shop.
