article top

Lineage, a new exhibition curated by Erika Molyneux, sponsored by the Honolulu Printmakers and hosted by UH Mānoa Hamilton Library, showcases artists who have made significant contributions to the strong printmaking tradition of Hawaiʻi. The exhibition is a genealogy chart or family tree of printmakers, emphasizing the relationships connecting various generations of artists.

The exhibition will be in the Hamilton Library Alcove from January 7 – May 27, 2013 (Mon.-Thurs. 8 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri. 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun. 12 p.m.-10 p.m). An opening reception will be held on Sunday, January 13, from 2-4 p.m.


Print artists in the exhibition are recognized for either their teaching, scholarship of printmaking tradition, the construction of community-access studios, facilitation of visiting artists, financial support of other printmakers & printmaking activities, or the creation of culturally significant and widely influential artworks.

The Honolulu Printmakers is the oldest nonprofit printmaking organization of its kind west of the Mississippi River and is one of Hawaiʻi’s oldest art organizations. Started in 1928 by Huc Lucquiens and Alice Poole, the organization promotes the appreciation and understanding of printmaking and print production. The Printmakers is supported by members, community corporations, state and private foundations. Honolulu Printmakers provides the local community with a variety of programs and services, including: exhibitions, community-access print studio, limited print editions, lectures and technical workshops with visiting artists, and leadership stemming from our officers and board of directors.
