New Art Cooperative in Kohala!

Jessica Andrews, Reporter

The Kohala Artists’ Cooperative (a project sponsored by the Kohala Resource Center) has slowly made it’s way into the community and made home in the Old Bozo’s Gas Station (across from the Kapa’au Post Office).

Eight community artists have stepped forward to secure the lease of the space and each represent several different art forms, photography, theatre arts, metal working, jewelry, glass, metal working, and industrial design.  They each share a belief that the Art Co – op should be a space of vibrant variety and artistic space that welcomes the community and provides inspiration and opprotunity for expression across multiple art forms.

They offer classes, each for $5 per person and gallery space (members only – easy to become a member).
