Our Fifth Anniversary Bash this Friday
Hard to believe we've been on Waianuenue Avenue as long as we have. It's a tiny gallery on a very noisy street with ambulances screaming up and down on their way to the hospital up above Rainbow Falls (Waianuenue = water of the rainbow, get it??). But the very things that keep us small and humble are also the strengths that have allowed us to stay open while businesses have come and gone throughout downtown Hilo. We are more or less a co-operative group where everyone showing on the walls shares time working at the gallery. So if you walk in you are going to meet a creative spirit no matter what day it is. Now we are even open on Saturdays, thanks to the generous willingness of Deborah Beaver, who uses the time to actually paint in the shop. We are also very excited about the participation of our new friend and ally Everett Charters, who is a technogeek, very intelligent, and with great ideas on how to improve our website.
Members of the A J Gallery will be celebrating our 5th anniversary with a special opening this Friday, September 3, from 5 to 7 PM. Come join us for music and pupus!
