Abstract Ceramic Sculptures by Stephen Freedman

“Paia Contemporary Gallery will present the abstract ceramic sculptures by master ceramist Stephen Freedman of Hawaii island during its December 2011 Exhibition. The show opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday and continues through Jan. 18.

The exhibition will also include new abstract paintings by Maui’s Akira Iha, Oahu’s Mary Mitsuda and Vancouver’s Scott Plear.

The abstract ceramic sculptures by Mr. Freedman have been featured in more than 100 exhibitions since 1983 and has been included in public collections such as the Getty Museum, West Australian Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Boston. The artist is also the chief editor of HI ART Magazine, Hawaii’s contemporary art publication. Many of Freedman’s concepts are rooted in his childhood in South Africa.


“My mother’s interest in pottery began in Africa, offering me medium; while my father, a biologist, worked with now mythological figures in the field of human evolutionary study,”?Freedman said in a release. “His pursuit of these evolutionary principles imprinted the way I subsequently perceive the world and my abstract ceramic sculpures.”

Paia Contemporary Gallery is located at 83 Hana Highway. For more information, call 579-8444 or visit”
