Our virtual tour of Hawai’i continues.

On Thursday, September 8th, 7-9pm, Volcano Art Center presents Patrick Ching’s “Inspiration of a Hawaii Wildlife Artist.”

Patrick is one of our favorite artists in the world and we would love to check out the Volcano Art Center whose tagline ‘Where People, Art & Nature Meet’ ticks all the boxes. Art and nature meet people and place. This is the place where I’d love to hangout.

I’ve met Patrick once in Henderson, Nevada (the famous 9th island and the Ho’olaule’a Pacific Islands Festival) and was immediately inspired by his vision and his art. His expertise includes wildlife painting, painting classes and kids’ books. I don’t buy many new dead trees anymore, but this was the exception and I would do it again and recommend it highly to anyone with toddlers. (Which reminds me … I wonder how much it costs to send a book to the Seychelles. But I digress.)

The Volcano Art Center is a place I would love to visit. Google says: “In an old converted house, this visual-art center sells an eclectic range of local artists’ work.” Pics

Location: 19-4074 Old Volcano Road Volcano, HI … How does one get there?

And if you, like me, cannot be there in person, celebrate by liking and sharing some of the following links. A little encouragement goes a long way on the social web.

Honu And Hina: A Story Of Coexistence – Patrick Ching

This story focuses on the unique situations we now are presented with, as threatened and endangered Hawaiian sea turtles and monk seals inhabit beaches where they have not been seen for hundreds of years. The story pose questions to our younger generation as to how they will coexist with these precious creatures of the sea.
