New exhibit at Contemporary Cafe focuses on figures

HONOLULU (KHNL) - A new art exhibit at the Contemporary Museum Cafe shines a different light on human expression.

The exhibition highlights the variety and expressiveness that result when artists work with the human figure as subject matter.

Although all of the figurative works are contemporary in their approach, the selected artists manipulate the figure in various ways that range from the graphic to the surreal and fanciful.

Six local artists work in various media including photography, painting, drawing and mixed-media/ceramic sculpture.

The exhibit is on view through September 28.
