Project Space Mural 2014 (Day One)

Project Space is a dynamic (June to September 2014) contemporary art opportunity. Taking place at Liberty Plaza in downtown Salem, Project Space offers juried exhibits by regional artists, studio space, in addition to performances and other events that encourage community dialogue.

Project Space is designed to bring out the experimental, the creative, the unexpected, the large, the small, the moveable and moving; embracing new avenues of expression.

Artists working in any media, including, but not limited to painting, sculpture, video, interactive media, installation, photography, performance, theater, sound and music, movement and dance are invited to apply to participate in the program. Approaches are fantastical, practical, high-tech, low-tech, humorous and serious. Exhibits rotate several times over the two-to-three month period, starting in June and ending in August. The specific schedule will be organized around the requirements of proposals chosen.

Day One:

Project Space 2014!

Aloha Friends!

I am very excited to announce that I'll once again be involved with Salem, Oregon's annual Project Space (Hosted by the Salem Art Association). The first time I worked with Project Space was in 2012 and I am happy to be asked back. I have been working on some ideas for a new series of murals that double as time lapse videos. I did some time lapse painting in 2010 with the Honolulu Museum of Art as their artist in residence and am excited to try an even larger scale project in 2014!

Here is the official Project Space Description from the Salem Art Association:

I am busy working on the plans for the series of murals I plan to paint there (so check back soon!) But until then here are some videos of my experience as Artist in Residence at the Honolulu Museum of Art in 2010.

New Drawing (Plus Preview)!

Aloha Friends!

I have been working on building back up a cohesive portfolio (which is difficult to do when you move from an island, then back to the island...) So here is the first drawing I've completed which will hopefully be the first in a series about Hawaii and more specifically the ocean and the earth between my two homes (Oregon and Oahu).

Aloha Everyone!

The last few weeks have been super busy! I am lucky enough to be working with some super cool ladies for this year's Vagina Monologues! I haven't done any theater in a while so it feels good to get back on stage. The show opens this week so if you are around, want to watch some amazing acting and contribute to a good cause come by and check us out! Better buys tickets soon, they are going quick! (Click on the image below to buy tickets) The Show runs April 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th. Thurs doors open at 7:30 pm, Sunday doors open at 3:30 pm!

Hope to see you there! Mahalo!




V-Day Honolulu 2014 is holding an open audition for benefit readings of Eve Ensler's award-winning play The Vagina Monologues on April 10-13, 2014. Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome to audition and no theatre experience is necessary. Scripts will be provided at the audition. Behind-the-scenes volunteer positions available for people who do not wish to be on stage or do not identify as a woman.

The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage, and excitement buried in women's experiences. This production is part of the global movement, V-Day, whose mission is to end violence against women. V-Day Honolulu 2014 is excited to present these works while raising funds to help end violence against women on O'ahu.   Email madeshaz@gmail.com

The Recycled Rain Project 2014

Aloha Friends!

I am pleased to say that I have been selected to be one of the artists participating in the Recycled Rain Project in Portland, OR! This will be the second year I have been involved with the Recycled Rain Project and I am stocked to be working with them again, even from a distance!


ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The Recycled Rain Project was founded to help bring awareness to local artists and the various water issues facing both our state and other’s abroad.

The Third Annual Recycled Rain Show will take place on May 10th 2014 at the Olympic Mills Gallery in Portland, Oregon. All juried artists will create original works with collected rainwater. While the subject matter in the paintings is varied, the over all concept is to bring to light simple ways that we can rethink the way we use water.

As part of the exhibit we will also highlight everyday things that individuals can do to make a difference. A portion of the sale of any works are donated to a water-based charity. We hope to do our small part to start a greater movement to help other’s realize what a precious commodity we have and ways that individuals can help make a difference here and abroad.

In our second cycle, we were able to add a children’s component to RR with the addition of RAINDROPS – a children’s gallery.  We are excited to say that we will be doing this again to help educate children on the environment and bring them closer to art!

This year we are excited to expand to add Featured Artists along with the Open Call portion of the show. These Featured artists are working artists in the Portland Area that have demonstrated a dedication to the environment as well as their profession.


Please visit their websites to learn more and get involved!
