Hawaii Artist Collaboration Charity Auction Set for Saturday, October 29 in Kailua-Kona

One of Hawaii Island’s many annual special events– one of my favorites, the Hawaii Artist Collaboration – returns this year following a two year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2022 invitation-only artist collaborative marks the ninth year that more than 35 artists from throughout Hawaii Island, Oahu, the U.S. mainland, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand will come here to create unique pieces of art in just four days during the week of October 24. In previous years, more than 80 original works of amazing, one-of-a-kind art were made by artists of various media teaming together to share their skill and experience with each other. One of the goals is encouraging the artists to venture outside their normal area of expertise. The artwork produced will be offered for sale at the silent and live auction hosted at the Hawaii Island Community Health Center pavilion from 4pm to 7 pm on Saturday, October 29. Proceeds help fund supplies for art teachers and their programs at Hawaii Island schools, and provide funds for future events.

Holualoa artist Tai Lake is the enthusiastic co-founder and cheerleader for the Hawaii Collab and he had this to say recently, “It’s wonderful to see so much support surrounding the return of this event. Artists representing about 14 different media all have jumped in to pick up the spirit of collaboration right where we left off. Once again this year, jewelers, blacksmiths, woodworkers, painters, sculptors and more are all coming together to create works that no one person could imagine alone.”

The Hawaii Artist Collaboration connects artists from around the world who are all masters of their craft and who are committed to sharing their experiences to help others get inspired and on their way. The auction itself – featuring live and silent auction bidding – is a not-to-be missed event if you’re looking for original art for your new home or you’re simply interested in meeting the artists, viewing the art, and making some new friends on Hawaii Island.
