Surfing Hawaii. Schaefer International Gallery

Dec 16, 2018 - Feb 15, 2019

This exhibition explores our most popular water sport, beginning with Native Hawaiian history and knowledge of he‘e nalu, and the evolution of surf culture in the islands today.

The story continues with the evolution of surf tourism and surf culture in the islands today, as seen with materials from archives, surfboards from collections, and vintage ephemera.

A group of accomplished artists from Hawai‘i, whose work often focuses on themes of surfing, have been invited to create two- and three-dimensional original contemporary works for the exhibit. They include Carol Bennett (Kauai), Pete Cabrinha (Maui), Peter Shepard Cole (O ‘ahu), Mark Cunningham (O‘ahu), Charlie Lyon (Maui), Wayne Levin (Hawai‘i), and Noble Richardson (Maui).
