Puff by Lyn HoweWe are proud to have included in our collection, "Puff" a magnificent bronze and concrete sculpture by Lyn Howe.

Thank you to R. Janis Parker for the donation of her original work, "Lehua Dance." This work is a 19cm x 7.6cm bas relief ceramic, finely textured and hand painted. It is a fine addition to our collection.

"Man Sits With Shell As Wild Woman Leaves" was graciously donated by the artist, Suzanne Dix.

Thank you to the Davey Family Foundation for the generous donation of the Sudlow painting, "The Violinist", oil on canvas 30cm x 40cm. The subtle gray tones of this fictional portrait contrast wonderfully with the warmth of the violinist.

An anonymous benefactor has also donated three original works by Hawaiian print maker, Dan Hoskins. These fun works are a fine addition to the museum collection.

Stephen Freedman and Jamie Stokes have donated, "Dilapidated" a unique stoneware sculpture and "Fractal #7" a stunning porcelain and stoneware work.
