University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Art Department

2005 Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition

February to April, 2005, Campus Center Gallery and Manono Campus Art Department Gallery

The 2005 Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition, presented in the Campus Center Gallery, University of Hawaiʻi, February to April, 2005, is a biennial juried competition which features artists from the cultures and nations of the Pacific Ocean. The exhibition is part of the Pacific States Series of national and international exhibitions presented by the Art Department and the Campus Center Gallery.

Richard Hunt is an internationally acclaimed sculptor from Chicago, Illinois. Hunt juried the 2005 exhibition and during his visit to Hilo, presented a slide-lecture in the Art Department Gallery which featured his work during his long career. Hunt is noted for his large environmental sculptures and installations. He has made prints for many years and a selection of Hunt’s lithographs were featured in the 2004 UHH National Invitational Works on Paper Exhibition in the Campus Center Gallery.

The juror selected 43 works from the more than 500 prints entered in the exhibition. Artists come from the United States (26 states), Australia, Canada, China, Japan, and New Zealand. Works in the exhibition utilize many different printmaking processes; intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, relief, monoprints, digital prints, and mixed media.

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.

Kudou Tadataka from Kanagawa, Japan, and Raine Vasquez from Indianapolis, Indiana, received Purchase Awards from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. Tadataka’s print, Town 4 - 10, is a color woodcut stencil and Vasquez’s print, Lessons in Gravity: Constellations, is a mezzotint. The prints will be added to the permanent collection of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.

The 2005 Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition is made possible in part through funding from the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts and the Student Activities Council of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.

Juror's Awards

Juror's Statement

I want to thank Professor Wayne Miyamoto and the Art Department of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo for inviting me to jury the 2005 Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition.

The work entered in the exhibition presented the juror with a vast array of styles and media almost as broad as the Pacific Rim itself. I was impressed with the way many printmakers have made use of traditional techniques to explore new content and the many ways other printmakers are crossing the digital divide. There were many instances where new and old horizon lines merged.

The sum of the jury process was to present a select overview of printmaking drawn from the work which was entered; and to provide the viewers of this exhibition with an experience of what is new and what is traditional and altogether, what is exciting about the art of making prints.
