An opening reception for the annual juried Kaua’i Society of Artists Small Works show was held recently at the Kukui Grove Center exhibition hall. Visitors had a chance to browse works ranging from turned wood bowls, marquetry, pastels, oils and encaustic (a wax-and-paint process) to mixed media, photography, pen and ink, clay, acrylic and more. The show continues through Jan. 28. The gallery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays until 8 p.m.
