Through community partnerships and a collaborative focus on both performing and visual arts, Marks has built a reputation for being both adventurous and edgy, and it has helped create an aesthetic and socioeconomic renaissance in downtown Honolulu, a synergy of economic opportunities improving the social infrastructure while honoring its cultural diversity.

Marks partners include shops, restaurants, and other businesses, four visual arts organizations, and eight performing arts organizations:

• Hawaii Watercolor Society
• Hawai‘i Craftsmen
• Pacific Handcrafters Guild
• The Lizard Loft,
• Hawaii Academy of Performing Arts
• Hawaii Shakespeare Festival
• Meader Arts,
• Orig Media, LLC
• Smash Box Productions
• Tim Bostock Productions and
• Upside-down Dance.

With about 2,000 visitors per month, Marks is an increasingly important organization creating venues and opportunities for emerging artists to meet new artistic challenges and to further their careers and powering the first Friday experiences that are drawing crowds to downtown Honolulu--and not just on Friday nights.

Exhibition schedule
Oct. 10-21: HAWAI‘I ARTS ALLIANCE PRESENTS: UNDERAGE THINKING VI
Lets face it, elementary school students do the best art, and kids who do art in school stay in school longer. Despite federal policy, these kids from eight of the most arts-integrated schools in the state will become more creative and productive citizens. Some great work by Chinatown students from Marks’ After School Arts program as well as from Kihei, Kula, Voyager, Montessori of Maui, St. Ann’s, Island Pacific, Prince Jonah Kuhio, and Waiau schools.

Oct. 14: FRESH FACE OF NUUANU

Special hands-on workshops and reception

Oct. 24-Nov. 25 HAWAII GLASS ARTISTS
The huge amount of light pouring into Marks should make this one of the best looking shows of the year, with delicious translucent colors from martini sets to conceptual and sculptural works. Visit hawaiiglassartists.org for a prospectus or more information.

Nov. 3: First Friday Glass blowing demonstration

Nov. 28-Jan. 6 THE SUN NEVER SETS
Susan Maddux and Margo Ray. Two women travel far, far away, only to find themselves making art about Hawai‘i. Margo Ray was born and raised on the Big Island but composed the installation ‘Splendid Isolation’ Montreal, Quebec. The installation features a life sized water tank and concerns ‘ post-colonial’ island culture. Susan Maddux was born in Honolulu and has been away for over 15 years, now living in Brooklyn, New York. She creates an ‘intuitive narrative’ based on personal and exotica icons of her native soil. “If you get far enough from home, you’ll be on your way back home.” Visit galleryartist.com/susanmaddux/or margoray.com/contact
