Nicole Naone and Ashley Huang Spark New Art Enthusiasm in Waikiki

Nicole Naone

University of Hawaii College of Arts and Sciences graduate Nicole Naone launched the Waikiki Parc Hotel's Parc Promenade earlier this year.  Using fiberglass, bronze, and repurposed woods, Naone created a beautiful piece of art drawing from multiple inspirations.  Her aim was to represent local art values and inspire the local art community to continue to grow and flourish.  Her installment at the Parc Promenade ended in October but fellow alum Ashley Huang has just installed a new exhibition entitled "Bamboo Forest."

"Bamboo Forest" will be on display until February 28th 2014.  Huang's inspiration for the piece came from personal life experiences.  In describing her art Huang said, "Each ceramic bamboo culm represents my relationships with significant people who have influenced me throughout my life."
