Honolulu Art Exhibit Features Photos of Xavier High School
January 25, 2011
HONOLULU – Photographs of life at Xavier High School will be featured at an exhibit at Honolulu’s oldest fine arts gallery. The images, by photographer/writer Floyd K. Takeuchi, are from his recent book, “School On The Hill, Micronesia’s Remarkable Xavier High School.”
The exhibit at the Gallery at Ward Centre opens on January 29, 2011, and will run though February 24. An opening reception will be held at the Gallery from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29th.
“I want to invite all members of the large Xavier community in Hawaii to stop by and see the show,” says Takeuchi. “No matter when they attended the school, I think they’ll see a bit of themselves in many of the photographs that will be on display at the gallery.”
Takeuchi spent a total of four weeks at Xavier in 2010, as a guest of Director Fr. Rich McAuliff, SJ. Takeuchi was able to attend classes, follow students during their free time on campus, and went with students and staff on off-campus outings, including the Class of 2010’s senior retreat at Pisar Island.
“School On The Hill” features 159 photographs and essays that focus on what makes Xavier both unique and an educational and leadership success story. The book is available for sale at the online bookstore, Lulu.com. Copies of the book will also be available for sale at the Gallery at Ward Centre during the exhibit of Xavier photographs.
For those who are unable to make the upcoming show, an expanded exhibit of “School On The Hill” photographs will be held from May 1 to July 3, 2011, at the Honolulu Club. The exhibit space at the Honolulu Club exhibit managed by the Gallery at Ward Centre, which is a cooperative owned by 15 fine artists.
The public is invited to attend either or both exhibits. There is no admission charge for either exhibit. Parking is free at Ward Centre. A parking fee may apply at the Honolulu Club, which is located at the corner of South King Street and Ward Avenue.
