Susan Callahan Kang has jumpstarted a new gallery/salon called The Garage, in Honolulu highlighting local talent as well as notable artists from New York.   UH art professor Debra Drexler recently led a trip of MFA and BFA students to New York, where they met up with some New York talent to bridge the connection for The Garage.  New York artists include Liam Davis, Rob DeOude, Linda DiGusta, Enrico Gomez, and Michele Zalopany.  De Oude and Gomez have both exhibited internationally and published articles in well-known art magazines.  Liam Davis is a MFA alum from UH who is currently an artist and curator for Artifact Gallery in New York.  Michele Zalopany is a celebrated artist of Native Hawaiian decent given exceptional recognition in the 1989 Whitney Biennial.

Local artists featured in the exhibit are three 2013 BFA alums; Susan Callahan Kang, Jodie Chock, Nicole Naone, 2013 MFA alum JessicaOrfe, and Roland Longstreet, Nari Maeda, with Debra Drexler as the curator.  Drexler has exhibited at multiple galleries in Honolulu and New York and currently has studios in New York and Kailua.

Hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm to 6:00pm, and by appointment.
