Exhibition Overview

Spearfishing Omilu Ulua sums up Edward Clark’s life in relation to art and ecology. The artist believes that Hawaiian spearfishing is the pinnacle of sustainable fishing. Learned from our ancestors, it remains our optimal future of sustainable fishing practices. Clark is struck by the relationship between marine life and the process of making hot glass. “Glass is fragile, like our environment, yet it has the strength and ability to endure for ages.” 

Join the artist on a journey that will demonstrate the importance of Hawaiian spearfishing culture and glass to societies past, present, and future. The installation focuses on spearfishing and explores its relationship to the modern fishing industry and the marine environment. Visit with Clark as he combines the culture of glass and spearfishing on a grand scale.

Work with the artist in the Surface Gallery on these weekend dates:
January 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31
