Hooked on art, for a good cause

As part of national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Kahala Mall and Morgan Beret Fine Lingerie will once again host "Unhooked Hawaii," bringing the worlds of art and fashion together in the fight against breast cancer.


Maile Yawata's "Love Cuts."

The silent art auction and champagne event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday at the Kahala Mall Center Court to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Hawaii Affiliate.

The art exhibit, "The Art of Support," includes more than 40 works, from poignant and thought-provoking to whimsical and amusing, in capturing the importance of a support system in dealing with the disease. Support can come from a variety of sources -- within the patient, her children and family, a loving pet, good friends, her personal faith or the community at large -- and the works explore those sources.

Among the 35 artists featured are Peggy Chun, Lynn Cook, Jodi Endicott, Kandi Everett, Sally French, Leslie Hayashi, Pegge Hopper, May Izumi, Kloe Kang, John Koga, Marcia Morse, S. Kay Mura, Esther Shimazu, Jason Teraoka and Shuzo Uemoto.

Tickets are $40 pre-sale, available at Morgan Beret Fine Lingerie in Kahala Mall; $50 at the door. For information, visit www.kahalamallcenter.com or call 732-7736, ext. 11.

Guitarist plays 2

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for two weekend concerts by renowned guitarist-singer Richard Thompson. He returns for two solo shows at the Honolulu Academy of Arts on Nov. 19 and 20 that will be markedly different from one another. In the first concert, Thompson will draw from his extensive repertoire, from his days with the English folk-rock band Fairport Convention, through his time with his ex-wife Linda and up to his present solo work. The second concert will be his popularly received "1,000 Years of Popular Music," a history of song dating from the 12th century up to Britney Spears (really!). Pre-sale tickets are $50 for both concerts, $30 advance per show and $35 at the door, and will be available at the museum's front desk, Island Guitars at Ward Warehouse and Hungry Ear Music in Kailua. For more info, call 532-8700.
