Honolulu Museum Of Art School Holiday Sale


Nearly 100 artists affiliated with Honolulu Museum of Art School are putting their products up for sale — both to raise funds for the school, and to help customers find one-of-a-kind gifts.

The more than 2,500 pieces are from classes that include metalwork, ceramics, glass fusion and weaving. Glass sculptures, jewelry, baskets, plants, vases and more will be featured. Plus, new items will be added daily.

Participating artists include Amber Chesebro, Bryan Choi, Daven Hee, Jere Matsumoto, Joel Park, Bud Spindt, Liz Train, Jon Vongvichai and Cynthia Wigg.

Artists will donate 30 to 100 percent of their proceeds — which will help fund the school’s classes.

The sale launches with an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 25 and runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Dec. 7 (closed Thanksgiving Day).

Also new at Honolulu Museum of Art Shop, as well as Spalding House Shop, is a collection of paint-dipped canvas zippered clutches (like the one pictured above) in a variety of colors and sizes, and hand-blown perfume bottles.
