The Academy Art Center at Linekona in Honolulu, Hawaii holds its Art Center Studio Benefit Sale simultaneously with the World Art Bazaar, on the second floor of the Center from November 23 to December 12, 2010. It’s open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am-4:30pm, Sundays 11am-5pm.

Every summer, Academy Shop Manager Kathee Hoover spends a month on the road visiting vendors across the country in search of treasures for World Art Bazaar. This year, along with the things regular customers have come to expect—vintage lacquer-ware, Chinese antiques, and African masks—are whimsical, Fair Trade contemporary items to brighten up your home, accent your newest outfit or give as singular gifts.

Items for sale include ceramic works by Steven Glass, resident potter at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and internationally known Karatsu potter Takashi Nakazato along with items by noted local artists.

Artists associated with the Center’s ceramics and metal studios donate beautiful, one-of- a-kind objects they have made at the center to raise money for the upkeep and improvement of the two facilities, which serve the local art community and serve to preserve fast-disappearing traditional crafts in a big-box retail world. Visitors will find ceramics and jewelry, and new this year will be fused glass and basketry pieces.  Whether you’re looking for something made locally or internationally, there’s plenty of fine art and craft to be had by the discerning shopper.
