Japan, Paris meet at Academy: Exhibit offers Western art from Japan

Five years ago George Ellis, former director of the Honolulu Academy of Arts, came up with the idea to bring Japan and Paris together in Hawai‘i. In an art exhibition, of course. It would show European paintings purchased in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Japanese collectors and Japanese paintings influenced by the Europeans.

Grace convinced Tom to help her take refuge in the town, but she revealed neither what she was running from nor who was looking for her.
