Award-winning wave photographer celebrates the opening of his first Hawaii gallery
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 February, 2011 : - - Haleiwa, Hawaii -- Clark Little has a rare talent for capturing some of natures most beautiful moments, often risking his safety in the process. The award-winning photographer, who brings a unique perspective to the magnificence of our oceans waves through shorebreak photography, today announced the grand opening of his first gallery in Hawaii, Clark Little Gallery Haleiwa.
Although the gallery recently opened its doors in January, the official Grand Opening is scheduled for Saturday, February 26, 5:00-9:00 p.m., during the monthly Haleiwa Art Walk. The public is invited to celebrate an evening full of art, live music, food, giveaways, a raffle, and a silent auction of Clarks work to benefit the Kokua Hawaiʻi Foundation, Mauli Ola Foundation and Waialua High School.
Clark will be on hand during the evening to talk and sign books. Food and beverages will be provided by Lulus Waikiki, Primo Beer, Barefoot Wine, Waialua Soda Works and smartwater. The elegant 1,000square foot gallery, designed by Hawaii fashionista Deb Mascia (Mu'umuu Heaven), is situated in the center of Haleiwa town, just minutes away from the beaches where Clark captures most of his powerful images.
On exhibit are a wide variety of open and limited editions, comprised of underwater seascapes, turtles in the surf and Littles signature shorebreak waves on mediums including glossy prints, giclee canvas, plexiglass, and aluminum. These presentations showcase the breathtaking photographs naturally brilliant and impressive colors.
Not to be missed are three photographs recently honored by the prestigious Windland Smith Rice International Awards, one of which garnered the 2010 Oceans Photography Award. Clark was also one of six photographers from around the world awarded the distinction of Highly Honored Photographer of Endangered Species for his photography of the endangered Hawaiian green sea turtles. These winning images can be viewed at the gallery before they are exhibited at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC from mid-April to September, 2011.
Clark Little Gallery Haleiwa is located on the North Shore of Oahu in the Haleiwa Town Center, 66-165 Kamehameha Highway, Haleiwa, Hawaii 96712. For more information call 1-808-626-5319
