On Oc­to­ber 17th, the sec­ond an­nual “Born from Fire” three di­men­sional art ex­hi­bi­tion opens at the Grand Pa­cific Ho­tel in Suva. Fol­low­ing 2017’s ac­claimed in­au­gu­ral ex­hi­bi­tion - “The Art of Glass and Me­tal” , this years ex­hi­bi­tion is en­ti­tled “From Ocean to For­est”. En­try to the ex­hi­bi­tion is free and it will be open to the pub­lic from Oc­to­ber 18th -24th. The ex­hi­bi­tion is the brain­child of two of Fiji’s best known 3 di­men­sional artists, Alice Hill from Hot Glass Fiji and Shane Bower from Imag­i­na­tion in Me­tal. It was es­tab­lished with the goal of show­cas­ing the high qual­ity of sculp­tural art from Fiji, and the first year, which fea­tured both in­di­vid­ual and col­lab­o­ra­tive works from Alice and Shane, was a great suc­cess and very well at­tended. To build on this and to­wards the goal of dis­play­ing the wealth of tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary sculp­tural art in Fiji across a va­ri­ety of medi­ums, 2018 will fea­ture new works from Alice and Shane and also the work of Sonny Sofe, a Nadi based artist who cre­ates fab­u­lous carved pieces from wood and bal­a­bala (tree ferns). Fiji and the Is­lands of the South Pa­cific are renowned for their stun­ning tra­di­tions of wood carv­ing, and Sonny’s work is skilled, in­tri­cate and beau­ti­ful. The stu­dios of both Hot Glass Fiji and Imag­i­na­tion in Me­tal are open to vis­i­tors dur­ing work­ing hours. Alice’s Glass­blow­ing stu­dio & gallery is lo­cated on Koro­togo’s fa­mous Sun­set Strip on the Coral Coast, whilst Shane’s work­shop is to be found in the beau­ti­ful town of Savusavu on Vanua Levu. The ex­hi­bi­tion is be­ing held in Suva’s iconic Grand Pa­cific Ho­tel - a beau­ti­ful build­ing in its own right, and a fit­ting lo­ca­tion for this stun­ning ex­hi­bi­tion.
