Celebrating Lehua Island through Art
Forestry and Wildlife is partnering with Island Conservation and the Kaua’i Society of Artists to host an art show focused on the natural beauty, native species, and the powerful mana of Lehua Island. This is a show with the intention of sharing an Artistʻs Perspective on Lehua Island, educating the public about Lehua, and raising funds to support the ongoing restoration work on this beautiful island.
The Entry Day for all art submissions is Saturday, Aug 6, 2022. Artists of all ages and experience are encouraged to create and submit Lehua-inspired art based on the entry guidelines detailed on kauaisocietyofartists.com.

Exhibition dates for the Lehua art show are August 12th through 19th with gallery hours daily from 12 PM to 6 PM. We are also going to be holding a silent auction during the Gallery Opening Reception on August 12th, 2022 from 5 PM to 8 PM.
