To all those who came out to the closing reception of “A Thirst For Saltwater” or supported this show in one way or another — mahalo nui, thank you!! This body of work has truly brought me life through the conversations and connections I’ve formed over the past few weeks it has been up. In addition, through many individual donations through the gilded oyster fundraiser project, we’ve managed to raise several hundred dollars to support Dig Deep Water’s water equity initiative at Navajo Mountain, UT. I am so humbled and overwhelmed by the response to this show and this fundraiser. In Hawaiian culture, we have a proverb: “ ‘A’ohe hana nui ke alu ‘ia / No task is too great when shared by all ” — I think this rings true here as well.
Mahalo, take care,
