New artist Mark Cunningham
“Mother Earth Mother Ocean”
in celebration of Earth Month
April through June
Made in Hawaii, born in Massachusetts, Mark Cunningham has been in love with the ocean and surf for 59 years.  Punahou released him in 1974 for good behavior…a retired City & County of Honolulu Lifeguard he still spends the bulk of his time on the beach and in the water.
As much as Mark loves to ride waves he’s just as intrigued with what lie’s beneath them.
When the conditions allows, he dons mask, fins and snorkel and makes the most out of exploring and scavenging reefs and impact zones for exercise and treasure.  Beachcombing between Makapuu and Kahuku has provided all the wood for the pieces displayed in this exhibit.
You may be looking around and wondering..”treasure”?  For every man’s treasure will be defined in a different and unique manner, and for Mark, these pieces represent a life, a story and an adventure: the remains of a wipeout, a tale floated from miles away, the shiny and the new becoming corroded and encrusted.
