Exhibit: He Makana: The Gertrude Mary Joan Damon Haig Collection of Hawaiian Art, Paintings, and Prints

October 15-December 23, 2017; Opening Reception Saturday, October 14

Schaefer International Gallery; Tue – Sun 10am - 5 pm (Also open before Castle Theater shows and during intermission)

He Makana, meaning “a gift,” is a distinguished collection of paintings, prints, and traditional art forms of Hawai‘i from the 1930s-1970s, that capture the history and nostalgia of old Hawai‘i. Among the treasures to be seen are paintings by three giants of early-20th century island painting: Lionel Walden, D. Howard Hitchcock, and Madge Tennent. This exhibition was gifted to the state of Hawai’i, and is traveling to the Schaefer International Gallery from the Art in Public Places Collection, courtesy of Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.

This exhibition is from the collection of Gertrude Mary Joan Damon Haig and offers a nostalgic look back into the history of a quickly changing bygone era of old Hawaii. Within the collection is a group of small objects designated “Traditional Arts of Hawai‘i.” These pieces are now virtually unattainable: ancient ko‘u calabashes; native Hawaiian feather works, including an ahu ‘ula cape; Ni‘ihau shell leis; and a Hawaiian flag quilt circa 1898. Of the traditional arts, Hawaiian feather work remains unsurpassed in its stunning beauty and originality of concept. These items are rare and unique to Polynesia. Both feather garments and leis were strictly reserved for the ali‘i (chiefly class), until the great period of cape-making ebbed at the time of Kamehameha I’s death in 1891. The four ‘umeke bowls, carved of ko‘u wood, but largely plugged with gum from the breadfruit plant, are also extremely rare today.
