For Immediate Release

The 2005 Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition is currently on display in the University of Hawaii at Hilo Campus Center Gallery until April 2005. The exhibition is a biennial juried competition, which features artists from the cultures and nations of the Pacific.

Richard Hunt, internationally acclaimed sculptor from Chicago, Illinois, juried the 2005 exhibition. Hunt is noted for his large environmental sculptures; his lithographs were featured in the recent UH Hilo National Invitational Works on Paper Exhibition in the Campus Center Gallery last fall.

Hunt selected 43 works from the more than 500 prints entered. The artists in the exhibition represent 26 states and Australia, Canada, China, Japan, and New Zealand. Works feature intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, relief, monoprints, and digital prints.

Hunt selected work by Daniel Britton, Arizona; Gene Chu, Ontario, Canada; Donald Furst, North Carolina; John Graham, Ontario, Canada; Stan Kaplan, New York; Wilfred Loring, Kansas; Elise Nicol, Maryland; Thom O’Connor, New York; Boyd Saunders, South Carolina; Francisco Souto, Nebraska; and Ashley Towne, Illinois, for Juror’s Awards.

Chu’s lithograph, The Dark World, Furst’s mezzotint, In the Light, and Nicol’s etching, While You Weren’t Looking, received Purchase Awards provided by Graphic Chemical and Ink Company of Villa Park, Illinois. The Purchase Awards will become part of the Graphic Chemical and Ink Company’s permanent international collection.

A catalog featuring reproductions of the work in the exhibition will be available in late spring. The 2005 Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition is made possible in part through funding from the Hawai`i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts and the UH Hilo Student Activities Council.

The Campus Center Gallery is open weekdays, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. For additional information regarding the exhibition, please contact Professor Michael Marshall, Gallery Chair, at 974-7524 or .
