WHO/WHAT: 34th Trash & Treasure fundraiser fair organized by TEMARI, Center for Asian and Pacific Arts.
Nearly 50 creative artists will offer up for sale their works of wearable art, gift art, practical art, fancy art and art for art’s sake. This TEMARI tradition dates back to the organization’s early days on 10th Avenue in Kaimuki, where the belief that “one person’s trash is another’s treasure” first took root.
In addition, non-profit organizations will be in the patio offering unusual gifts with White Elephant collectibles. From noon to 2 p.m. there will be demonstrations and other activities. Hui O Laulima will demonstrate how to make nuno zori (rag-woven slippers); Moiliili Senior Center will demonstrate how to make magazine paper flower pins; The Autism Society will present a silent auction and a keiki art activity; and the Asian Affairs Council will offer a folding paper activity for keiki.
WHEN/WHERE: Sunday, Oct. 4, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Manoa Grand Ballroom, Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i. (8-9 a.m. early opening for TEMARI and JCCH members only: membership card helpful, but membership lists will be available at the door.)
