He Ho’ala Ana/An Awakening:

Kapa by Marie MacDonald, November 20, 2008-January 18, 2009, Gallery 22

A “Can’t Miss” event for all of us kapa makers!  Marie MacDonald, author of the acclaimed books, “Ka Lei: The Leis of Hawaii” and “Na Lei Makamae”, co-authored with Paul Wessich, presents her first kapa one woman show at the Honolulu Academy of arts. Mere words fail to define the many talents of this awesome lady but there is a great write up about her at the Academy website.  Please put this event on your list of things to do!
