EHCC hosts small local artists. Great place to see a local play at a great, reasonable price. Recently had a Hawaiian quilt show, with master quilters answering questions. Free.

Local art and artists works shown in juried environments. There are some shows that are outstanding: Spring (May) and Fall (November) Art Show and the Young at Art in March come to mind. Great gift shop too.

Every exhibit I've seen there has been wonderful but it is also a small venue, so it doesn't take long to visit

I vist the East Hawaii Cultural Center as frequently as I can to view the work of local artists. It is a wonderful experience and reveals the stunning talent we have on the Big Island.

Went to the exhibit opening for three local women artists and the gallery was full of people, laughter, live music and great art and the next day was treated to a performance of Turkish mystic music, dance, poetry and slide show in their upstairs theater. Then next weekend is their Aloha Saturday Hawaiian Festival and that night a Talent Contest.
