Gypsy Night MarketIMG_2280

Come join me this Friday evening, December 6th, from 5:30-10-00p.m. at Honolulu’s “First Friday Art Event & Night Market.” I’ll be in the “Chinatown Courtyard,” located street level below the “Chinatown Artist Lofts” at 1126 Smith Street. Finish your Christmas shopping in one place! My current inventory of paintings, art prints, jewelry & more will be on sale for this one night event. I’ll also be having a drawing for a door prize. Just stop by & drop your business card or name & email in the box & I’ll let you know if you’ve won. You needn’t be present at the time of the drawing to win. We’ll also have live music, food & a *Secret Beer Garden* there. What’s not to like? For your information, I also accept the “ID Card” (Hawaii Isle Discount Card,) which will save you an additional 20% off all purchases! Not sure what to buy someone for Christmas or Hanukkah? Buy them a gift certificate for merchandise or one of my art workshops, parties or private lessons!

**Note: It’s a little tricky to find because it’s a courtyard, located between Smith and Maunakea Streets, with an entrance off either street. It lies with the square block between these two streets & N. Hotel Street & N. Pauahi St. (It’s not well marked, so if you can get within this square block, just poke around or ask where the Chinatown Artists lofts are.) One of the entrances is located catty-corner from the Maunakea Marketplace on Maunakea St. Whew! Trust me- that’s the hardest part, the rest will be fun! See you Friday! Thanks!

According to the dictionary, a shrine is:
1.) A place or object hallowed from its history or associations; as a shrine of art.

2.) A case, box or receptacle, especially one in which one deposits sacred relics.

3.) Ritual Altar: An altar that contains objects placed for specific intent which have deliberate symbolism. An altar created thoughtfully enhances the ritual’s meaning for the individual or group.
