Foyer Art Gallery Exhibit

Twenty-two pieces of Hamilton Kobayashi's latest impressionistic oils, capturing the life of our ocean and the grace of palms, grace our foyer Art Gallery until November 21.

Hamilton Kobayashi graduated from the University of Hawaii with a degree in Fine Arts.  His pursuit of art was put on hold as he raised his family and established his picture framing business in Kaimuki.  His association with renowned artist, Satoru Abe, his mentor and close friend, has renewed his passion for art.  He has started painting again.
