Currently organized under the banner of the Kohala Artists' Cooperative (a sponsored project of the North Kohala Community Resource Center), this collaborative represents many aspects of art: fine arts, photography, jewelry, metal working, glass, industrial art, building and design and theater arts.
Founding artists Catherine Morgan, Isaiah Price, Camille and Brian Dugan, Eric Le Vine, Anna Flint, Kristan Valensky and Jack Boyle share the belief that the cooperative model of combining resources and talents are the engines of art.  They are excited to open this space up to our community for artistic use and classes for all ages.   
Plans include a cooperative gallery supported by members, six individual mini studios, a "Maker's Space" where resources, tools and knowledge are shared, and a multi-purpose open space for theatrical productions, classes and events.   
You are Invited
Come celebrate their bold vision at the Open House and Fundraiser on Saturday, July 28th at 4:00
"We hope that you will come and Envision with us and enjoy dinner, live music and Fill up on Art! We are putting out the call to all of our community to donate whatever you can for our "open market" fundraisers throughout the year. We are so excited to be repurposing this historic building for our long-awaited Community Arts Center!  See you there!"

Call for Artists, Educators Activists & Scientists

Kohala CoLab is negotiating the use of two bus stops, one in Hawi and one in Kapa'au, as seasonal canvases for public art and educational temporary installations.
8 artists and exhibitors wanted
The project goal is to select 8 displays that will each be up at a bus stop for 3 months, to create a year of changing exhibits that inspire and inform local residents and visitors.
The competition will be juried, and each exhibitor will be required to propose and install a safe, interesting, and changing exhibit.
All ages welcome.
