See Fine Works of Art at First Hawaiian Center's Exhibition Space Through June

Duncan Dempster’s “Rhombus” (2018), screen print on plywood

Allow art into a weekday while enjoying a respite from the bustle of downtown at First Hawaiian Center, which hosts three shows in the Honolulu Museum of Art’s on-site exhibition space. To behold Duncan Dempster’s bright, playful work in mixed media, Emily McIlroy’s huge textural paintings, and wood art from the Hawaii’s Woodshow Artists group is to beckon beauty and aesthetic pleasure into the everyday. In presenting this work outside the confines of the traditional museum setting, HoMA creates space for art in the quotidian—one might pop in for 10 minutes, or wile away an afternoon. Through June 14, Mon.-Fri., 8am-4pm, free, Downtown Honolulu, O`ahu
