WOW! & Then: Art over the decades by WCC faculty

Gallery ‘Iolani celebrates Windward CCʻs 50th anniversary with Wow! and Then, an exhibit showcasing art over the decades by past and present WCC art faculty.

Artists include Snowden Hodges, Mark Hamasaki, Paul Nash, John Morita, Jordan Souza, Rebecca Horne, Kapulani Landgraf, Shigeru Miyamoto, Miki Cook, William Zwick, Toni Martin, Bryce Myers, and more!

“This exhibition celebrates current and former faculty of the fine arts program at Windward Community College. These extraordinary artists/teachers created a legacy of teaching beginning art students toward viable art careers throughout the state, country and even in other countries. Many career artists who began art studies at WCC include local and national studio art teachers and working artists in all Hawaiian Islands. Some are designers, painters, ceramic and glass artists, photographers, gallery directors, as well as an illustrator in Portland, a painter in Paris, a contemporary artist in NYC. In 2017, former student Sean Yoro, was recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of 30 under 30 successful national artists.”
