Virtual Tour of “Hana No’eau Hana Hou” at Hopkins Center for the Arts
Local Hopkins artist J.W. Green had just hung his artwork for his show called “Hana No’eau Hana Hou” at the Hopkins Center for the Arts when the building closed to the public because of the novel coronavirus. The show’s title means “art again,” inspired by Green’s time in Hawaii.
You can see the works on the ground floor and through the windows of the building facing Main Street. Visual arts manager Jim Clark gave CCX News a tour.
J.W. Green’s work includes painting and drawings. The show was originally scheduled to conclude at the end of March, but was extended due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
“It’s a wonderful splash of color and vitality during this challenging time,” said Clark.
Test Your Knowledge of Hawaiian Flora
There are 21 works on display done by Green at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
“A mix of paintings acrylic on canvas as well as some pen and ink drawings. Many of which have a partner or analog in color as well, said Clark. “A nice variety of sizes and different types of flowers for the botanist out there. Or, as an amateur botanist you might test yourself on your knowledge of Hawaiian flora.”
Many pieces are for sale. Clark says send him a request and he’ll let you know. His email at jclark@HOPKINSmn.com or you can call 952-548-6489 and leave a voicemail.
