Paul Mullowney is the director of print making and runs Hui Press. This excerpt from the Hui site: “As part of a newly created Artist in Residence Program, HuiPress was launched in 2004, taking fine art printmaking on Maui to a new level. Nationally & internationally recognized mid career and emerging artists are invited to work with Master Printers and University Interns in an environment designed to support creative expression in printmaking. Our aim is to foster experimentation, innovation, and collaboration, while pushing the boundaries of traditional print media.”
Illustrator and artist Marcos Chin was on Island for some R and R so he, his friend Mikey, Ellen Weinstein and I wandered over to the art opening. The exhibit was a collaboration of work done by students and actual Swoon artwork. It was a bit hard to tell which is which in some of the photos. It was a great night and the place was packed with lots of youth who enjoyed the spotlight.
