Kahilu Theatre Galleries are free and open to the public Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1 pm - 5 pm Kahilu Exhibits will presents a solo exhibition, Thresholds, Journeys with Fibers and Fronds by Lynn Martin Graton, from April 22 to June 21, 2021 in the Simperman and Hamakua Galleries of the Kahilu Theatre. The exhibit features both woven textiles and coconut fiber basketry. In the Simperman Gallery, Graton is expanding upon traditional loom weaving techniques to create textiles that echo ancient traditions of meditative scrolls and fabrics that define sacred spaces. In the Hamakua Gallery, the exhibition features traditional coconut basketry Lynn learned over four decades ago from master weavers on the remote islands of Micronesia, Fiji, and Tahiti. There will be a virtual gallery walk-through with the artist available for free on Kahilu.TV. Lynn’s journey in crafts began in the 1970s when she received a Bachelor of Arts in Ceramics & Sculpture and Arts Education at the University of Guam. During those years, she learned traditional basketry and floral techniques from master weavers from the islands of Micronesia. After receiving a Master’s in Pacific Island studies with a minor in fiber arts from the University of Hawaii Manoa under scholarship from the East West Center, Lynn spent her career as a folklorist and arts administrator working for state arts agencies in Hawaii and New Hampshire.
