The New Black: Black & White Photography Exhibition is now on display at Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center in Makawao. It will run through May 3.
In our modern world of fast moving images and bold colors, we seldom take a moment to pause and look deeper at the form and rhythm of the world around us. The goal of this unique juried exhibition is to challenge artists to take this pause and explore beyond the realm of color into shades of gray from the deepest blacks to the brightest whites.
Hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Hui is at 2841 Baldwin Ave. in Makawao. For details, visit www.huinoeau.com.
Art lovers and recycling advocates are invited to participate in the annual Art of Trash 2013. Each year, show organizers hope to push the artistic envelope to relay messages of stewardship.

Exhibit organizers will receive work between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on April 13 at Maui Mall, in the space next to Thailand Cuisine. Entry fee is $10 per piece.
