PREIS Honors 2013
Allyn Bromley, Preis Honoree 2013
Hawai‘i Arts Alliance celebrated its 32nd annual Alfred Preis Honors event on January 18, 2014 at the Kahala Hotel & Resort. Beloved Hawai‘i printmaker and arts educator, Allyn Bromley, received the Alfred Preis Honor for her lifetime support of the arts and arts education. The evening began with print demonstrations by the Honolulu Printmakers, as well as the musical talents of one of Allyn’s favorite groups, Hui‘Apuakea. Guests also enjoyed the display of prints donated by Honolulu’s top printmakers for the Drawing for the ART$, which raised close to $10,000 for arts education programs on the islands.
The dinner began with a beautiful oli aloha by Meleanna Meyer, and welcome remarks by Alliance Board Chair Gordon Wood, CEO Marilyn Cristofori, event Co-Chairs Indru Watumull and Susan Palmore, as well as returning emcee, Leslie Wilcox. After the dinner, guests waited with bated breath as Committee Chair Anne Swayne picked names for the Drawing for the ART$, and the delighted winners got to take home prints from artists such as Ken Bushnell, Hiroki Morinoue and Sally French.
