Inspired by the international “Slow Movement”, Slow Art Friday does not replace First Friday, but provides an alternative, pedestrian-friendly experience keeping our money in our local economy. Don’t wait to “see if it works” or let this little revolution happen without you! Slow Art Friday is an answer for those who feel that First Friday is too hectic.

Linda Ching’s “AO, Ten Years of Light” is a self published collection of 80 of her photographic images that illustrate and celebrate Hawaiian mo’olelo. Each of Ching’s “painting through photographic light” is accompanied with text that shares the artist’s personal thoughts.
Peggy Chun Gallery, 1161 Nuuanu Ave; Opening reception for Evan Rapoport Photography, “Shutter Thoughts”. Show runs November 19 thru December 11. Evan met Peggy thru the company he works for, Archinoetics. Throughout Peggy’s illness, Evan brought technology to Peggy’s bedside that would allow Peggy to “paint” using her brainwaves. Thru this experience, Peggy and Evan formed a wonderful friendship and Peggy inspired Evan to pursue his passion of photography. The Chun family has made the decision to close the gallery, December 11, so Evan’s show will be the final show at the gallery, a poetic and appropriate finale for the gallery space. Please join us for a month of fun, great deals, great memories, and partying “Peggy-style”!!!! Slow Art Friday opening, 5 to 9pm, wine from our friends at Wine, the Experience.
