“It’s a great honor to celebrate the first anniversary of our Hawai‘i gallery,” says Arturo Torrez, Park West Hawai‘i director. “Our gallery welcomes art lovers of all levels and ages to browse works by some of the greatest artists in history. We have masterworks by Salvador Dalí and the largest collection of Picasso’s ceramic works on display anywhere in the world.” Park West invites special guest artists every month into the gallery for complimentary live painting demonstrations and meet-and-greets that included James Coleman, Marko Mavrovich, Allison Lefcort, Daniel Wall and Alexandre Renoir, to name a few. Also monthly is its complimentary wine tastings where guests can learn to pair wine with fine art. A highlight of the year was the inaugural Made in Hawai‘i artist competition where entries from across the state were accepted in search of the next upcoming artist. Visitors can view the winning artist O‘ahu local Chris Sebo’s (seboart. com) work all year long. “We are grateful to have been graciously welcomed by our Hawai‘i ohana,” says Torrez, “and we look forward to continuing to provide a unique art gallery and museum experience unlike any other on the island.”
