Go Ahead and Sink

January 23, 2011

An exhibition of recent works entitled, Go Ahead and Sink, by Allison Uttley Bianco will open at the HPU Art Gallery on Sunday, January 23 and will run until Friday, March 4, 2011. 

           Go Ahead and Sink pictures unfortunate ships being swallowed up by the ocean.  This exhibition deals with natural perils and their absurd relationship to personal nostalgia.  Since the fragile vessels share names with family members and friends they become linked with memories and history.  The drawings represent frozen moments just between floating and sinking where sinking always wins, but the hope for floating remains.”

            The Hawai‘i Pacific University Art Gallery is located on HPU’s windward Hawai‘i Loa campus, 45-045 Kamehameha Highway, in Kaneohe.  Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Admission is free and the public is invited.  For more information call: 544-0228.
