VOLCANO, Hawaii: The Volcano Art Center is “calling all artists!” for its second gallery in Volcano. The new gallery will be outside the national park, where the original gallery still resides, at Niaulani.

Welcome to the new Rainforest Gallery at Niaulani

Volcano Art Center (VAC) is pleased to announce the grand opening of a second gallery location in Volcano Village. The Volcano Art Center Rainforest Gallery at Niaulani is set to open July 2012 and is currently accepting new artists who wish to display and sell their work on consignment.

“We are excited to provide the opportunity for even more local artists to gain international recognition,” stated VAC Gallery Manager Emily Catey.

Since 1974, the VAC Gallery inside the national park has been dedicated to its mission to develop, promote and perpetuate the artistic culture, environment and heritage of Hawaii’s people. Currently representing over 300 local artists and displaying an extensive collection of fine arts and handcrafts inspired by Hawaii, VAC has earned its reputation as the “Best Gallery in East Hawaii.”

“Sharing the beautiful work of our artist ‘ohana with over 75,000 visitors annually is a great honor, but we can’t wait to do more,” said Catey. “VAC is proud to become known for increasing public awareness of arts and culture while enriching our own community.”

Artists interested in displaying their work at the new gallery are invited to send a biography, images of their work and a $5 non-refundable application fee to Volcano Art Center, PO Box 129, Volcano, HI 96785.
