For more than a decade, small decorative art have been featured in art galleries and fairs in major cities such as New York City, Chicago and Santa Fe. And finally, this movement has reached Hawaii’s shores.
The Fine Art Associates, a local art consultation firm, will be showcasing unique, one-of-a-kind decorative arts and design — like the blue glass ball in curve, above, by Tonia Moreno — in the first-ever mini-SOFA show and sale in November.
The show — which runs from Nov. 11 to 13 at the Fine Art Associates showroom off Ward Avenue — will feature the diversity of art created by Hawaii artists expressed through small works. No piece will be larger than a foot in height, weight or depth. (SOFA stands for Small Objects and Functional Art.)
“We have no shortage of world-class artistic talent in Hawaii,” said Lauren C. Faulkner, owner and art consultant. “Mini-SOFA is an opportunity for us to share more affordable contemporary art and design, finely crafted, sometimes whimsical and often inspiring work by artists of Hawaii and introduce this work to more of the community in a fun and accessible way.”
Public hours for the exhibit are noon to 6 p.m. Nov. 11 to 13, The Fine Art Associates showroom, 1020 Auahi St. in the Ward Industrial Plaza. For more information, call (808) 591-2489.
