Our friend Kamea Hadar, artist and one of the lead directors of the annual POW WOW event in Hawaii, will be opening a show next week at Cukui in San Jose, California. Entitled Face Value, the new canvas paintings continues his dynamic exploration of the human form. As with much of his work, there are subtle cultural references that come from his roots in the Aloha State that can be seen when one looks closely. The opening is on August 16th from 7-10 pm – stop by if you are in the area.
