Gallery on the Pali
Honolulu’s GOTP announces an exhibition of artwork by David Behlke. The exhibition
will run from May 7 to June 15, 2017, at GOTP, located at the First Unitarian Church at
2500 Pali Highway.
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT: David Behlke has been an active part of the local art scene as
artist, gallery director, and presenter of new artists while directing the Koa Art Gallery
at KCC (Kapiolani Community College).
His art is frequently colorful, organic and layered. In turn, there are layers of
interpretation once the viewer allows themselves the pleasure of seeing this visual
matrix as a whole, a visual cohesive conclusion. At times Behlke’s work is suggestive
of duality, of male and female, hence the title of the exhibit “Internal Integration.”
BACKGROUND: Behlke is well versed in the making of contemporary stained glass
windows. Examples of his work may be seen at Arcadia Retirement Center and 15
Craigside where his “Hawaiian Creation” anthology shines from sunup to sunset. Color
and translucency are intermixed into each painted image to some degree.
“I would like to thank the Gallery on the Pali for the opportunity to display my new work.
This is the third time I have had the privilege to display my artwork at the First Unitarian
“Additionally, I say a special thanks to Daniela Minerbi who encouraged me to apply to
have this exhibition of the evolution of my images at this stage of development.”
David Behlke is available for art talks for those who are interested in exploring
their own personal development
